Bullet vs Steel

A 160 grain bullet cast from range lead & fired from a 357 magnum at approximately 1250 fps. The 3 bullets made contact with a hardened steel plate a 50 yards.

Remembering Charlie Irby

Today I come to you with sad news, my best friend and brother in life past away 11/21/23. He had a fight with cancer that he lost, it’ll be hard. My email box was always full with all the things we were working on and all the hours on the phone and video calls. I’ll […]

FIRST TIME WITH IRON SIGHTS IN 20 YEARS Got my hands on a Winchester Model 52C and the first thing I wanted to do was put a scope on it. With blurry up close vision it was just a natural reaction not to mention having used optics for so long now. Though being able to […]

Low Case Fill Woes – Part 2

Taurus Judge Public Defender Polymer 45 Colt Load Experimentation At the range I started off with the 5 rounds of AutoComp with the cover cards I spoke of in the last post. I cut the cover cards with this little paper punch found on Amazon. I was hoping for a marked improvement. This was achieved, […]

Low Case Fill Woes

I recently acquired my first revolver, a Taurus Judge Public Defender Polymer in 45 Colt/.410. At the same time I purchased some Hornady FTX Leverevolution cartridges so I could go to the range to play with my new toy.   A new caliber is a sickness, I quickly got around to buying dies and finding […]

How much time do you have?

Today I pose a question I would like you to think about. How much time do you have? I don’t mean the twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, we all have. No, not 168 hours a week. I mean how much time do you really have? Such as, how much time of […]

Headspace and Discord

Did you know that The Reloaders Network has its own “social media” website? More than four years ago The Reloaders Network began as several folks from our community gathering together on a service called Slack. Since that time we have migrated to Discord, and that live discussion and chat is alive and well. You can […]
First Pheasant 1

Wife’s First Pheasant

I took my wife, Lacey, to Double Barrel Ranch, just south of Spokane, WA. This was her first ever pheasant hunt. We did well, but to be honest we missed a couple birds. Either way, we had a blast and it was well worth the trip, we will definitely be going back.
Modified Paradox Pin

Modifying Svarog Paradox Core Pins for Bacon and MIC

I got started reloading so that I could shoot my Saiga 12 more. The main thing I wanted was cheap, good slugs. Since then I’ve cast many thousand Lee slugs, and loaded a few of the Lyman Diabolo. These were always a compromise, since they are not bore riders. They are good, and I don’t […]


I hate to post this, but please beware! This website is a total scam (RoyalFirearms)! They can be reached in a far middle eastern country at 702-670-2043. Better yet, go to the website and get the address, then take a minute to Google Earth it…… They are ripping people off! I called them and confronted […]

3D Printed Primer Inversion Tray

I recently got myself a 3D printer, and one of my early projects to test it out was printing a primer inversion tray–maybe not the most glamorous project in the world, but certainly a useful accessory for reloading. Here is a video overview of the project

You should probably check out TorkMags.

I've finally bought a product that I have been watching for at least a year. The Tork Mag is a durable plastic mag with two springs in it that lets you put more rounds in a smaller package. They come in 50, 40, and 35 round capacities. This is a well made mag that is probably more reliable than a normal 30 round, not some gimmicky range toy. These are really well made mags that are theoretically immune to binding, and the pricing is remarkably reasonable.
