Reloading, Handloading, what’s the difference?

Posted in

While the terms Reloading and Hand Loading are often interchanged, they really is a difference in the two. It’s the sort of thing that only matters to those it matters two, and then, those people are likely to be hand loading.

Ballistic Coefficient (BC)

Posted in

At some point, you have probably heard the term Ballistic Coefficient. People on ranges love to compare and argue about what bullet has a better BC. But what does it actually mean?

Evaluating your reloads – OCW Load Testing

Posted in

People reload their own cartridges for a variety of reasons. For some it is financial, some it is because you can’t source the ammunition any other way and for some because they want to maximise the performance of their firearm.

Shooting Units: Understanding caliber

Posted in

I was talking to someone on the weekend regarding sizing and different calibers.

Lab Radar, OBT Testing and a sunburn!

Posted in , ,

I am always keen to develop and test new methods of load development. Anything I can do to speed up the process of finding optimal loads – it means less component use and more time to practise my shooting and confirm ballistics and less testing loads.

Optimising your VLD Bullet accuracy – seating depth

Posted in , ,

The new generation of VLD (very low drag) projectiles have brought with them more accuracy, and more requirements to optimise. It won’t be new to shooters that bullets have a sweet spot when it comes to seating depth. For a long time F-Class and BR shooters have been ‘jamming the lands’ – setting seating depth out long enough where the bearing surface is actually touching (or even slightly pushed into) the throat of the rifling. Minimising jump eeks out the final bit of performance.
