I use Forster dies and change out the expander setup with a Lyman carbide expander. If I use a mandrel I use a carbide one of those as well.
I would lube a few cases by hand using Unique to set the die. This way I didn't have to wait for One Shot (OS) to dry. Then I would use One Shot for mass lubing of brass. Once the Unique was gone I could tell the One Shot took more effort to size and especially pulling the brass back out of the die it took more effort. It seems like the OS lubed brass was stretching back out when pulling the brass out of the die. The Unique is always easier and smoother to size with, but I didn't think it made a difference in the final outcome and I was wrong. I switched to lubing only with Unique and I don't have that problem anymore.
Are you running around 31 grains of 4166 with those 95s?
Titan Reloading has them. Mine was delivered today. I haven't messed with the 6 Creedmoor in a long time. It went back burner once I got my Nucleus and 6BR. I will have to readdress the 6 Creed soon.
I have a PVA barrel sitting in the safe. I'd be tickled if I could get it to shoot like that.
Lee now offers a collet neck sizing die in 6 Creedmoor.
How does it do at 6x in low light? Reticle visible enough for hunting?
FFP scopes aren’t great at low power. The reticle gets very small. To use the low power settings I have to turn on the illumination so I can see the damn reticle. This works well and you just put the lit cross on target.
That why they call it know your limits. 😎 I didn’t know mine and missed the smallest target and ended up with only 2 points. 😩
Currently we are limited to 1050, 971 and one range is only good for about 650 yards. Times, target size and difficulty are adjusted to try make it more challenging at the shorter distances at the short range. 50-60 rounds is normal with the finale usually around 110 rounds. Some targets are 2 MOA (if there are 2 targets on a rack) while most are much smaller. Some stages will be cleaned by some, but never all. Never has a match been cleaned by an individual.
Attached are the COF from the first two matches of 2019. Times were generous for the first match and won't be as nice as we progress. This was done for any new members and to get back in the game. Round three is at a range owner who loves to make you shoot fast. I think he secretly has stock in barrel making companies.
So lets see what you guys shoot. We are small and still learning and we can get some ideas from your COFs.
Well I found a malware on my computer, got rid of it. If I notice it again on this site I will scan it right away again. It may not have been from here, but I never noticed it anywhere else.What did you use to find your malware?
I do use the dry graphite. I dip my nylon brush into it, tap out the excess, and run the brush in the case mouth. The seating force is easily cut in half. I do not know if it prevents a bullet sticking after time however. I’m thinking it would have to help.
Doesn't the graphite get knocked off when you dump the powder through the neck?
