  3. Hi All, I was wondering if anyone has any bismuth load data (fibre wad) they would be willing to share. Any help appreciated. Many thanks
  4. NOW SOLD £85 for job lot posted to mainland UK including: Neck turner tool body with cutter (£65), Power adapter(£31) , Power adapter handle (£16), Press adapter (£16) All you need to neck turn your cases by hand or with a normal power screwdriver - just add a calibre specific pilot (£17) and expander mandrel (£17) available from 1967spud.com I have pilots and expander sets available for 6MM and 6.5MM for an extra £20 per set. Full instructions and setup videos at: https://kmshooting.com/learn/ From the manufacturer: "The K&M neck turner has a very unique cutter adjustment mechanism that allows for a very precise cutter adjustment. This design incorporates very fine pitched threads of a screw within a screw concept which yields 0.002” cutter advance for each rotation of the adjustment nut. As a point of reference and comparison, a micrometer advances the spindle 0.025” for every revolution of the thimble. There are etched markers on the neck turner body around the circumference of the cutter adjustment screw hole placed every 30 degrees radially and as a reference, there is one punch mark on the face of the adjustment nut. When the adjustment nut is rotated one increment the cutter advancement is 0.0002”. You can drive the cartridge with the power adapter and proper shell holder by hand when the handle is installed or remove the handle from the power adapter and insert the ¼” hex stem into a cordless screwdriver."

  6. Hi all, my first post on here so go easy! Firstly to set the scene, I have shot my whole life, having had an extended break for a decade due to lack of money, and recently got back into this wonderful sport and purchased a new ATA O/U 12g which I am very pleased with. Years gone I dabbled in loading my own cartridges just to make basic shells, nothing fancy but did it just because I enjoyed it, so I have very basic experience in reloading. I have recently acquired some really good rabbit/pigeon/crow land which is near horse paddocks. The 12g scares the horses too much, so for fear of loosing the land I am wanting to see which hushpower options were out there. I have ruled out .410 because of the cartridge cost and limited availability, also quite frankly my shooting isn’t good enough in my opinion to operate a .410 to its full effectiveness. Also the load-your-own equipment for .410 would make it cost prohibitive as far as I can see (?). So this leads me on to the larger bores, 12 or 20. The Mossberg offering of both of these is far too heavy, I’ve tried both in gun shops and just felt far too unwieldy. So I guess my question is... Does anybody have any experience or thoughts of a basic pump action (e.g Hatsan), with a Hushpower removable moderator (the one where you send off an extended choke to them, £180 from http://hushpower.co.uk/Gunroom/SG_Hushpower.htm) and then also my ability to produce decent subsonic 12g which actually kills out to a decent enough range but remains at least ‘fairly’ quiet? Thoughts please from anybody with any experience in either reloading subsonic 12’s, or indeed anyone with a larger calibre Hushpower shotgun! Thanks in advance Jim

  10. Firstly, Happy Christmas all! Until this weekend I had no idea that 'reloading' was even a thing. Since discovering reloading I've been looking at videos on youtube of the process and wondering whether it could save me money. Some questions: 1.) Is an explosives certificate required and if so how do you complete the form? 'Aquire' only or 'Aquire and keep'. And which powder do you specify? 2.) How economical is it to reload 20g cartridges (for clays)? How much does it work out to be on average? 3.) Are there any local people/clubs I can go and learn from (in or around London or Essex). I am already aware of F.E.S & and TFSA. Many thanks in advance.
  11. 300 x .38/375 bullet heads . rounded blunt point with blue lubricant band. Only £30 178 x Once fired brass , deprimed. £5 Contact me regarding the postage or pick up. I estimate the delivery in UK mainland for the bullets would be around £6 and the brass about £2.90 I can combine the both at a cost of £6 if you wanted the bullets and cases.

  14. Hey Guys/Gals quick question Been doing a fair amount of research regarding recipes for shotshells and it would appear that our cousins across the pond make tapered hulls and wads which are much more powder efficient. Question is, do we have a source for AA hulls and wads in the UK or Europe that isn't a complete rip-off?

  18. Just spotted this on one of the suppliers websites. FROM THE GUN TRADE ASSOCIATION 24th OCTOBER 2016 TNT have taken the decision, effective from 14th November 2016, to remove the transport of Firearms, weapons and ammunition from the TNT network. This includes firearms, component parts, moderators, ammunition, all powders, primers and missiles. ** Sadly we will be unable to accept orders requiring delivery of powder after Monday the 7th November 2016 **
  19. A quick shout to the lads that have been using this stuff last year where have you settled reloading wise only have a KG so don't want to be sending half of it down to the pattern plate was thinking along the lines of a 42 gram load as the stiff is so costly buffer or no buffer ?? any pointers would be grand
  20. My first attempt from my 'new' Lee Loader, actually looks OK. I do have a query though (actually this'll turn into a few I suspect) of you more experienced 'Loaders: I was working in the garage and the temperature was low - about 5~6c (roller doors don't keep in the heat very well). In *some* instances: After I poured in the powder I tapped the wall then dropped in the head and tapped it down. When I removed the finished round, there was some powder on the outside. In one case so much that I'll only use it to make the rifle go bang (I'll start the hunt for a kinetic extractor soon). I'm using Hornady cases that have only been fired once, from my rifle. What would case this? Condensation? Incorrect alignment (pretty unlikely) I fitted the primers as a batch run, so sat the cases in the extractor and then placed the large tube over the top. Do I need to make it more 'snug'? The end products are the correct length, btw. I loaded another case with powder and then looked inside (no spillage this time) and found there looks to be plenty of room for the head (not excessive, but enough) I'm using 37g of H414 with a Hornady 50g V-Max head, with CCI large rifle primers. I've primed 20, but stopped filling at 10 as I'm not happy with the spillage. I'll hose the tube out with brake cleaner to ensure there is no grease or muck in there, just to be sure, but I doubt this is the case. I washed my hands before starting and defo wasn't sweaty. As always: all info/advice gratefully received.
  21. Hi guys, I've got 199, 12 bore, 2 1/2" plastic cases (they have "LYALVALE" stamped in the brass so most likely cheddite but not sure), 5 mm brass head, primed with cx2000 primers. I bought these, tried one and realised they're too short for anything I need. I'm wanting £15 for the lot, not posting them as it's not worth it. So Oxford to pick up or I'm going to be at the shooting show on Friday and can do the deal there.
  22. So I have had it in the back of my mind for a while that it would be nice to get into reloading, but have really been looking for somone who is giving up of the like so I can get a full set up for a reasonable price. So I thaught I would ask PW for advice So I have seen this for sale and have no idea if this will be ok, ie. if it will be up to date, data avalable ect. and also if it is a good price?! (I have abosulutly no idea, but looks like it could get me started) So the ad is as follows: "Redding loader old model but ok ,20kgs shot mainly 6,s 2,000 primers,qty 1oz plswads tin nobel 82 2x1/2 tins 82 1/2 tin vectan qty capped cases all 12 bore also approx 125 no 4 shot express steel selling for old mate who has stopped £200 ono" I have sent them a message asking for photos and will post as and when they arrive. So guys is this a good idea, and if so would i need anything else to get me started? (I have a sack full of my once fired carts) Many Thanks, James
  23. This is a reloading die I made out of scrap over this week end. It's a plug expander die in .308. In the interest of increased accuracy I'm moving away from the traditional ball expanders where the case is squeezed down, then the expander dragged up through the neck to expand it out to the correct size. This plug type of die allows you to resize the case without the expander ball, then expand from the top to the exact dimensions you prefer to give your desired neck tension. I know you can buy "off the peg" expander plugs and I know it adds a couple of stages to the reloading process but it keeps me amused. and a video of the how I made it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MTW20NzZ-OA
