reloaders

3 posts in this topic

my dad has lead brass and primers,.270, was looking to find some one interested in reloading them, what would it cost or should he just sell the stuff?

If you will be using the ammuntion in the same rifle that the brass came from a Lee Classic Loader kit will have everything except the powder for you to load the rounds yourself. The kits sell at Cabelas for less than $20. A pound of powder is in the $15 to $20 range.

The kit uses powder dippers so you don't have to fuss with a scale. I think they even have a caliber specific load chart so you could even get by without a manual. I recommend getting the lee manual anyway as there is ton of good safety and gun info in it.

The reason for using the ammunition in the same rifle that the brass comes from is the Lee Classic loader neck sizes only. This could lead to difficulty in chambering the round in a different gun.

I disagree, you need a scale, even a mechanical one, in fact I have one you can have. you're dealing with gun powder, safety needs to be taken.

but yes, if you want to reload them, get the lee classic kit, either the hand held or the full length version.

there is a caliber specific loading book for that has all the listings from different bullet makers and powder manufacturers as well. I recommend that and a reloading book. Once you get into reloading it is pretty simple, but I still worry when I am priming the cases. those little buggers have some umph behind them........

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
