Bigbore, 270 wsm is definately a bullet to be reloading, I was at GM the other day and was floored by the price of ammo. Have you bought your reloading equipment yet? If not, I would suggest buying a reloading book or two and reading them first. Since you are looking at Nosler bullets, I would recommend getting their reloading manual for sure and maybe the ABC's of reloading as well. I have 3 books on reloading the ABC's one, the Lee reloading manual and the hornady reloading manual. each one has great information and I definately suggest you do some reading and a little research before you get your equipment.

I personally went with the Lee classic turret press. I reload for both pistol and rifle and it was the best solution for me. the most useful piece of equipment I have is the RCBS chargemaster scale system. I bought the digital scale portion first until I saved my $$$ for the powder dispensor part. It is very accurate and when you are developing loads for your rifle, the digital scale is a definate plus.

I could go on from here, but I will let others offer their advice as well. There are a number of people here who reload as well. Lee dies are a great bargain, they work really well and don't cost and arm and a leg either.

One of the most important things to remember is to use load data for the exact bullet you are using. Don't use data for a different bullet that seems the same. Your pressures may be way off! Definitely get some books on the subject. LoadData.com is a great source online.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
