    Re-barreled my RPR 6.5 Creed

    How much muscle did you need to break the bbl nut loose? I've read that that can be a b**** to get done.

    Chamfer and Debur even if I am not trimming?

    Hi lash, and a reason why I said 'probably' (allowing that I could be totally wrong) and agree it's a perception thing. I dug out three of my Lapua brass, the brass that I did not need to trim. I can see a shine on the outside caused by the chamfering cut and a shine on the inside caused by...

    Using Short Brass in 6.5CM

    Good question Mainer. My chambers are SAAMI spec. I go by the published spec in Hornady's 10th Ed. (6.5CM) 1.920 is max, and I try to not trim any more than necessary, so I have ended up with two trim lengths. 1.918 and 1.916. This is a mix of mostly Hornady and some Federal, Win, Nosler...

    Chamfer and Debur even if I am not trimming?

    Perhaps so, but in my experience not measurably. At least with my calipers and skill using them (or lack thereof). When I do trim I trim to 1.916 and other cases to 1.918 and then C/D and after C/D I am still at 1.916 or 1.918. I am using the hand held Lyman (orange) tool with the...

    Using Short Brass in 6.5CM

    New Berger 6.5mm 144gr LRHT

    Just before the holidays I bought a box of 100 of these new 144 gn bullets. Could not find Berger published load data so contacted them. They advised they did not have any published data at present but would be happy to give me some over the phone. They could not get back to me until after...

    LabRadar.. Crowded range, brakes, and cans? Sure.

    Greg's unit is great, as is he. Bought one a month or so ago and am happy across the board with the whole deal. Sadly, there is a 'guy' who seems to have copied Greg's device and then turned around and is selling it for a few bucks less. I decided to buy mine from Greg who came up with the...

    Picking a New Action

    I think you are in midrange price for actions. Check Defiant for one. That said: If this is a one time big thing for you, I'd spend the money. If something you may do a time or two or more, then go with the R700. Finally, you could look around for a donor rifle or action and build from...
