In everything we do let us remember to do things safely and carefully. My guidelines here are to help you pick the needed equipment to reload your own ammunition […]
In this video I discuss load development and results for my 224 Valkyrie using Hornady 53 grain V-Max bullets, H4895, and PowerPro-2000-MR.
In this video I discuss the loads that I am choosing for taking the 224 Valkyrie out to longer ranges. I have been doing load development at 100 yards and I have found some consistent, repeatable loads that are grouping for me, and giving me the ballistics that I am looking for. I will go through these loads, and show some targets that I have shot with them.

These books are your most important item you could have on hand; other than old fashion Common sense. You will need both however !! fuzztfork8Began reloading in 1976; casting in 1977 when good lead wheel weights were everywhere..There is something about making your own and being self-sufficient, that intrigued me.
We use the Hornady 147 gr ELD-M with Alliant Reloder 17 powder in my Ruger Precision Rifle. There is velocity and group data at 150 yards. Hornady Brass and CCI -250 LRM primers are used.

I demonstrate how loading on a turret press is ideal for reloading a small batch of ammunition for load development. The turret press I use is the Redding T-7.
This video shows the Berger 130 AR Hybrid OTM Tatical loaded with Reloder 16 in my Ruger Precision Rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor. There is velocity and group data at 150 yards. We use Lapua Brass along with Fed 205MAR primers.
The "Skeeter Load", which is a 250 grain cast SWC loaded in a .44 Special case with 7.5 grains of Unique powder, is one of my favorite loads. This load, named for Skeeter Skelton, shoots from my 6 1/2" S&W Model 29 at about 950 fps. I want to duplicate this velocity when shooting the same bullet from my S&W Model 629 TALO Deluxe, which has a 3" barrel.
Thor's Axe sent me some of his 200 grain .44 caliber FWCs. I loaded these and shot them in my Charter Arms Bulldog, S&W 69, S&W 629, and S&W 29.
