People often ask us why we shoot. Some folks golf, some collect stamps, we shoot.
I am by no means an expert on rifle reloading. So when I found that my primers were backing out of the primer pocket, I scratched my head for quite a while until some tips from a few good friends here on TRN led me to investigate a headspace issue. I purchased the Hornady headspace […]

About two years ago I built my first AR-15, it was a budget build that I acquired parts for one piece at a time as money permitted. It started with a trip to the barber shop, and then a walk across the street to the gun shop to drool on the glass cases. They had two Anderson lowers for a good price, and given Hillary was leading in the polling numbers, I slapped my CHL and debit card on the counter, completed the paperwork and walked away with the serialized beginning of a rifle.
Here is the summary of the first rounds I loaded. Bullets and brass weight sorted, brass shoulder bumped and neck expanded with a mandrel to get .001” tension. Three charge weights each with two overall lengths. 2.810 and the long which was set .020” off the lands
