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?
Great interview! Can you point me to the link mentioned in the podcast description?
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
Great, practical information!
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-?
Great info! Thanks for the run down.
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”.
It sounds as though he goes ‘till he likes what he sees.
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.
Question: Since we will be using the expander mandrel to set the neck tension, should we remove the expander ball when Full Size Resizing?
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"
