Thats a really good price if you reload.My dad reloads all his hand gun shells but I have never done any of my rifle shells,I've had a few problems with shells jamming so I buy a new box when I need shells.

Timba,

The reloads were jamming? Something ain't right.

In the 25 years or so that I've reloaded, I've had only one failure. That one was a shotgun shell that fired but the base pulled off when trying to eject it. What kind of shells and rifle? It wasn't a Remington Auto was it? Those things need special dies to reload for them.

It was my ruger m77 30-06,it did it a few times years ago on me with the reload and never did with the new shells.I thought dad reused the casings to much and they got weak and expended or he loaded them to hot.

I try and keep all the shells now if in the future I start reloading them.

Arrived on time and well packaged.

Aside from a few snafu's with the FFL stuff... it was an easy transaction.

Scott is a great seller and I would buy from him again, as soon as I can afford to...

Oh... and now I know his first name.

Rick,
A few words of caution...Don't crawl the stock when pulling the trigger! It causes stitches or at least will get ya some.


Remington is making different loads for this one now also. They come in different power levels. My younguns rifle liked Federals and the Remington Premiers.
