Reloading / Re: bushing size for Redding type 'S' neck die First attempt
Last post by flexible -
Hi everyone; fleixible here. Just did a practice run with one brass case of Hornandy once fired 6.5 Creedmoor brass.
I followed this sequence:
* sized in Redding body die
* sized in Redding type 'S' die with .287 bushing
* Sinclair Mandrel expander
* went to measure case length and saw the attached!

I am guessing I screwed up with the neck die adjustment?
thanks and I'd rather embarrass myself here than have a rifle blow up next o my face.

I forgot to mention I replaced my Hornady comparator inserts with Sinclair inserts. The Sinclair insert hole is bigger and does a better job of measuring the actual ogive datum versus a datum "north" of the ogive.

This makes a huge difference measuring bearing surface if you are using 2 comparators on the same caliper with either insert. The angle on the boat tail is usually more aggressive than the ogive angle so even though you're using the same datum you are not measuring the same distance from the bearing surface on both ends giving you an inaccurate measurement.

Obviously the bigger hole in the Sinclair inserts would let you measure closer to the actual bearing surface. The drawback to the Sinclair inserts is they require developing a feel to repeat the measurement. if you keep working the bullet it will eventually "get stuck" in the insert.

its going to shoot good I believe... I shot a inch 3 shot group with it at 300 yards with a 52gr. eldm that I had loaded for a old 22-250 that my uncle had gave me a year or so ago... wish it had a faster twist rate where I could shoot heavier pills ..its a 1 and 12 twist so that keeps it around a 60 gr. pill or less... been looking at them ornx chassis by mdt… may put it in one of them or a thumbhole boyds stock... but for now just gonna shoot it as is...

If I go down the chassis wormhole it will be a TAC21

Those things have tickled my fancy for a couple years. The green lights are mystic!

Tell ya what Fuj. Follow my protocol: convince your wife that spending the money on that piece of equipment is more important than the vacation she wants us to take to go see her family in PA, buy it, test it, and then make that recommendation. I’ll nibble on that hook!
😂 - teasing aside. I don’t have a Prometheus and have never run one, but accuracy and speed wise I think it would rival the Fx-120/auto throw + Autotrickler combo. It’s prettier too.

Jerry.....I'm throwing the hook out to you. Knowing you just
retired, I think you really need to look hard into a "Prometheus"
This caught my eye some time back, since I like my beam scales.
