Reloading

9 posts in this topic

Hey are there any handloaders out there who would be willing to reload some 270 win rounds for me? I'd pay for all materials and pay you as well. The problem is i want some really lightweight 270 ammunition, but i dont have any reloading experience, and as i am going to college soon i wont have room for it.

Thanks

Jackal, although I appreciate your desire to have ammo loaded for you, I, personally, wouldn't do it. I never have nor never will reload for anyone else because of the the liability. In my opinion anyone that does is asking for problems. Besides, the cost of components now-a-days would not justify savings for a one time deal.

Besides the fact that reloading for another person could be a liability disaster, you should know that it can be complicated to find a load that shoots well out of your gun. You can easily spend big $$$$ working up a load.

Every gun is different and there are many factors that will effect how your .270 shoots. Bullet, powder, bullet seat depth, primers etc.. all effect how your gun will shoot. In other words, my .270 pet load (that shoots perfect out of my gun) may shoot badly out of yours.

The factors mentioned above also seem to get even more complicated when you shoot smaller bullets out of a big gun. A .270 typically shoots 130-150 grain bullets well, but when you dip down into the smaller bullets like the 90 grain, it tends to get finicky. Not saying it's impossible, just saying it could take some time.

My advice, shoot factory rounds for the time being, then get into reloading when you get some more space.

Superior or Conelly Precision are another couple of names of outfits that sell custom reloads. They will even do mixed boxes to help you work up loads for you rifle. I've heard good things, but haven't used either personally and would expect to drop some coin to have a company do handloads for you.

    • By their fruits you shall know them....   We will figure it out in a year or two.  Legacy and all that. 
    • So installing foot washing places in public buildings should be off limits?   Not clear if MSP airport has installed them or not.
    • This is true however the Christian conservatives get just as bent out of shape over Muslims doing it as atheists do when Christians do it.
    • Good point. Next time out, clip on your biggest spoon to see if that reads? If so keep going smaller while making adjustments until you can't read it anymore. Also try different depths.  If your reading bottom you should be about to see something still if adjusted right. Good luck.
    • So the sled and ice fishing gear as well it sounds like. Good for you.
    • Good price.  You just need a $1000 generator to run it - or a good current bush...
    • That particular jig or all jigs? $175 is ridiculous
    • I think it will only fit 2 of the longer track sleds. It a 7 X16 with a V front. But it only needs to fit mine anyway. I went with a cargo trailer with a rear ramp as I have reverse now so no need for a drive threw and its a lot less expensive.
    • I don't think there is any law preventing muslims from paying to allah in government buildings just like any christian can pray to jesus/god in a public building. 
    • Warm weather and rain have literally put a damper on winter recreation activities across much of Wisconsin, and have led to the cancellation of a number of activities planned for this weekend.Temperatures in the 30s and 40s and some steady drizzle, freezing rain and fog have reduced snow cover to minimal in the southern half of the state, and have left snowmobile trails open in only the northern tier of counties, but those counties continue to report good to excellent snowmobile conditions on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Ski trails are also still in good condition in northern parks and forests, though warm conditions have made the trails soft. Most trails in the southern half of the state are now closed, with the exception of the loop with man-made snow at the Lapham Peak Unit of the Kettle Moraine, which as of Thursday was still planning on going ahead with the Lapham Loppet Ski Races this Saturday.Freezing rain this week closed some park entrance roads earlier in the week but they have now reopened. Many parking areas remain icy, so anyone visiting properties this weekend should use caution. A candlelight event that had been scheduled this weekend at Governor Dodge and a snowshoe hike at the MacKenzie Center have both been cancelled. However, candlelight hikes will go on this weekend at the Nordic Trail in the Southern Unit of the Kettle Moraine and at the Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center. Both properties are reporting trails are icy and urge people to wear appropriate footwear and crampons of some type. Shuttles will be available for the Horicon event and anyone attending is strongly encourage to use the shuttles as parking areas are icy and muddy, and parking is limited. .
