Hunting / Re: Insult Added to Injury
Last post by mnbogboy -
Wayne, years back we "tried" to follow a "Quality" management program within our hunting group near our property in Wisconsin.  We would pass younger deer , but then the neighbor brought in all the hunters from his church and made drives on the public land around our land (even a little trespass).  Well they shot 21 spikes, forks and other young deer that year including many we passed up.   Making matters worse a "trophy" hunter bought a 40 down the road and hunted many of the areas of public we had for years.  After a weeks of corn baiting  them in they didn't shoot many trophys but usually shot 2 year old baskets robbing the chance of those growing old.
Morrow of our story; if hunting near others go out there have some fun & eat well.  Harvest from all age brackets is necessary to keep herds healthy.  Just like cattle ranching you can't keep all the bulls, younger ones make the best beef, the cows get old & eventually go to Micky Dees, and there also are the veal calves.
QMA requires "control" of the better share of not only the herd but the hunters too.  Some places it can work but most places it just won't work.
Certainly the disappointment that we and you have had when things didn't work out can take the fun and enjoyment of otherwise great times with family & friends.   One of the best hunting relationships I have ever had was "spoiled" after my friend shot a 173" buck.  He became obsessed with "Score" and it eventually led dissolved our relationship as we each led our kids down different hunting paths.

Heres how i like having mine set up.. little play on the handel on top.. as i raise the bullet up in the collet i will put just enough pressure on the handel of the puller.. this lets me feel the bullet going in the collet and also tells me when the mouth of the case is up against the bottom of the collet.. once there putt a little down pressure on the collet and lower the press ram.. once pulled get ahold of the bullet and release the collet handle..

Ric,
Good looking rig.  Several of us on the forum can help you spend a lot of your money when you are ready. Timney trigger or new spring from MCARBO.  Aluminum bolt shroud from Anarchy.  Stocks from Boyd's, MAGPUL or B&C.  Pic rail from Warne.  The amount of after market for the RAR Pred is amazing.  Have referred to it before as the AK of the bolt world.  With one major exception.  They are crazy accurate.  Have told this story before.  Convinced my friend Jim to give one a try in 2015.  He had been a hardcore .308 man and it had been good to him.  Liked the RAP and got a wild hair.  I put a Timney in for him. Had a local master smith chop it to16" and crown.  He has killed a pile of whitetails, feral hogs and coyotes with it.  It likes Berger 130 VLD-H.  Made the mistake of letting his wife kill a whitetail with it a couple of years ago.  Now they squabble over it.  Told me today he is going to buy another and do the same mods so there will be peace at the homestead.

I believe I have it figured out.   

First, I set the body of the puller down far enough that it just protrudes below the lower opening of the press.  Allows you to see how far the case is from the die. Raise the ram and mentally "note" where the handle is when the brass is just below entering the die.  Then it's repeatable.

While in this position lower the cam while upright until it touches the bullet.  Cam over nothing will happen.  Gradually lower the cam until it can grab and cam over (relatively easily) and lock the ring.  Lower the ram.  If bullet is not grabbed lower cam in really small increments until the bullet is grabbed sufficiently to be pulled.  Can't cam over? Too low don't force the issue

This may sound dumb, well it does for those who know, however the bullet is extracted on the down action of  the ram, not the cam device.  This operation is all all about feel.  Just like "knowing" that primer seated.

Hope this helps someone.

jerry do you set yours to where it cams over on the bullet ? i have gotten to where i set mine to where i can just apply pressure to the handle with my left hand and work the press with my right...

Ya I do the same - get a better release that way. I’ve never polished the inside of the collet but I think that would also help with release of the bullet.

Robin I just drop it in a plastic box on a 1” foam pad and pack the sides with an old towel. It’s traveled over 3000 miles that way with no problems. I use a sign wave inverter in my RV and it works flawlessly.
