Hi.

Joined today after finding this site by accident. = NICE site, too!
I'm nobody important. = Just a retired US Army guy from a wide place in the road up in Northeast TX, who's retired outside the gate at Ft Sam Houston.

yours, tn46

To All,

BTW, does anyone have a "pet load" for 270 grain JSP for .375 Whelen Imp, that is a ballistic twin of the 9.3x62mm (commercial) European hunting load?

yours, tn46

Hi all,
Joined today. I found the site on Google looking for info on reloading Independence ammo. I'm just starting out and reading the Lyman handbook. Getting back into shooting and looking to expand my 2 gun collection. In a couple few years I'll be retiring. Currently a civilian with the Corps of Engineers. This is the second military Corps I've been blessed to belong. The first was the US Marine Corps. vtr, Beta.

Hello all:
I found this site while looking for a .411 KDF mag K15 that I let slip away, a sister to my .375 H & H.

I'll be 50 soon, and while I've never been in the military, most of my friends and relatives are. I've been a civilian contractor to the USACE for the last 10 years, and have worked at dozens of installations, both CONUS and OCONUS.

(two of two) In HS/College, I worked in a sporting goods store and, later, a law enforcement shop (10 years).

I can count as my friends the tallest man to survive the Bataan March, a Sandanista /re-revolutionary commander, and one of the last Marine snipers to come out of Saigon (might have been the last time the order to "fix bayonets" was given to Marines, on the boat out, he says). Would love to discuss these things with anyone who cares to. The Marine is also looking for guys from his unit. Any help there would be appreciated.

Oh, to the point, I'll be loading for a 722 .244 for my daughter. It's an early, slow twist model. Heard heavier bullets are best. Anyone with load data, or bullets for sale? Thanks, Judgecolt6

Hello, found this site on a Google search. I am learning what I can about reloading. New to shooting a rifle, bought my first rifle last October and did some deer hunting with it. Love it. Very different from my bow hunting. I wanted to get as good as I can with shooting, so I joined a rifle and pistol club with targets out to 200 yd. My rifle is a Tikka T3 stainless lite in .270 with a Leupold VX 3 at 4.5 - 14. I have only shot Hornady Superformance SST 130. Thank you.

I concur with the intent of this forum. My military records were lost by the Central Records Facility in St. Louis, Mo about 2000. I could not verify much on my service except for my parachute and glider wings. I still have my certificate of completion from the Airborne School
at Ft Benning, Ga.

I would like to offer someone a part. It is the primer feed body for the Lyman spar T press (single stage I think)
Can't post pics here, but anyone having interest can email me for pics of the item. First come first served.
john414r@hotmail.com ( put word RELOADING in subject)

oh yes, the item looks new.....

Hi,
I just joined this forum. I used to shoot and reload in the latte 70, and early 80's. Mostly 32 ACP, 9x19 and 303 British. But due to my professional life (Airline Capt) I did not do any shooting or reloading for about 25 yrs. I had carefully stored all my reloading equipment, powder and ammunition in a trunk and placed them in my basement which is dry and heated. Now that I am retar....err I mean retired, I rejoined a rod and gun club and getting back into hunting and shooting on my club's range, I unpacked my trunk and found everything in good shape. Among my hoard I found 360 rounds of CIL (Dominion but mostly Imperial) cartridges, 303 British mostly 215 grain KKSP, but also many in 150 and 180 grain. They are in KKSP, CPE, PSP and ST and all are packaged in their original packaging, along with lots of once fired brass, but also lots of I I fired CIL and Norma brass. I would like some comments regarding these cartridges and their effectiveness for hunting. I even found that I had 20 cartridges of 180 grain Norma soft point semi pointed boat tail. Also have a package containing 100 Norma Match Grade,303 Cal, 216Gr Soft Point, Round Nose bullets which I intend to use as I need them, but for which I have no reloading info. To end, my stash also includes many boxes of unfired new Imperial and Norma brass for this calibre. Also many boxes of Imperial bullets in all perviously mentioned weights and types. I would appreciate any comments regarding reloading the above, the usefulness of the 215 KKSP for hunting dangerous game, or any information and advice you may have.
Thanks for your help.

Not sure, but I think it was via a Google search. I think I will like this site a whole lot. Sharing this information in this forum is a great way to increase our reference pool.
Thanks to all of the moderators who spend their time making sure it runs smoothly.
And thanks for a good, straight forward design.

well, I be new. read the noob section rules, but can't start a noobie thread even though the rules say I can't. so I guess I shall say howdy here!

I been thru a few other sites but want one more related to reloading. Been reloading for 14 yrs now since I retired from the Navy. Money is tight so I improvise when I can when it comes to getting my brass and bullets.

I do have a perfected method for converting Berdan to boxer primer pockets that I can post when hit my 5 posts. I have alot experience on old battle rifles of other than US design. I can show you how to convert a MG 13 25 rd Magazine to fit a Hakim rifle instead of converting he rifle to fit the Magazine... (Just as an example)

My main caliber now a days is 7.62x51 for my CETME and 9x18 for my cz-82. I turn every ctg i pickup on the range to 7.62x51 that is convertable by trimming and resizing due too the rising cost of brass, and I resize and trim 9mm to my 9x18 for my pistol. I also cast my own for the pistol currently, and getting geared up for casting for my CETME.

But to cap things off, I am a retired Naval Gunner, 17 of those yrs as a small arms instructor and armorer. Have owned and reloaded for several different calibers, but due to neck injury all my big bores are gone if the recoil bothered my neck.

Hope to learn some more, and share what I know...

This site was recommended to me by one guy from site Huntamerica.com, where I was a member about 5-6 years.
And yes, I really live in Moscow, Russia, and really have 9.3*64.

Welcome aboard Vashper, we're glad to have you join us. 9.3 cartridges aren't at all uncommon here in America, but we see more 9.3x62 than 9.3x64. Anyway it is a great hunting cartridge.

JC6, for .244 marked rifles, it is usually a slower twist which needs a lighter bullet.
90gr is usually considered the heaviest one for a .244.
Gene, I believe we both got done by the fraud Texdoc. I know he got $50 from me for his,"poor 12 year old neighbor girl with cancer".
That was about 2 months before you outed him.
