Really intresting podcast. One question, what charge weight is he looking at for a start when checking for seating depth? Or did I miss that part in the podcast?

@TacticalTexan Scott said he doesn’t go deeper than the shoulder to neck junction with the bearing surface of the bullet. So once the bullet is that deep he stops and doesn’t go deeper.

Since you are in effect having a larger chamber and can use a “wonky” powder, are we talking you can use faster burning powders or slower burning powders?

Did finally get some velocity data after trying the mandrel die and I DID definitely see an improvement in SD. Went from 15 to 9 SD for a 4 shot string. The 5th shot blew it out to 13 but Im hoping thats just variance from the Chargemaster or since that batch if brass has been resized with the ball twice before using the mandrel for the last 2 loadings. .308 Lapua brass.

Love the content. It's pretty cool to compare Satterlees method with Bryan Litz' method.

I learned more about hand loading than I imagined possible during this episode

Can someone tell me how Scott sets his stations up on his progressive. I didn't catch exactly where the Expander Mandrel step was in this process. Station 1-Depriming, Station 2-Full Length Resize (Excluding the Expander Ball), Station 3-?

I really enjoyed this podcast, I forgot but when during the reloading process did scott say he did his case trimming deburring and chamfer?

It’s actually .007”. A .30 cal projectile mics at .3091”.

@DeltaFourTwo : If my resized and mandrel-ed cases measure .302, does that mean I have .006 neck tension? Sorry if thats a dumb question but Id rather be correct than assume.

Absolutely.

@momo : Question: Since we will be using the expander mandrel to set the neck tension, should we remove the expander ball when Full Size Resizing?

It sounds as though he goes ‘till he likes what he sees.

@TacticalTexan : So when your chasing the lands and working your way back what do you use as your stopping point? For instance, do you keep going back .030, .060, .090 till you get to the book listed COAL or do you go further?

Another great Podcast guys. I can't say how much I appreciate what you're doing for the sport. Look forward to something in the yoga department. Keep up the good work.

If you want to read an extremely in depth article on chasing the perfect load and a bunch of small details search the for the article "Secrets of the Houston Warehouse"
