Re: who's reloading tonight?
its a strange thing. No real set of rules to follow here. it depends on the rifle and how hot you load the cases. the higher the pressure the more the brass moves. I hate to say it but you really need to measure a sample of the batch every time.
But some 25 years ago when i was plinking with a mini 14 i would just keep reloading till the necks burned. I think I got 6 reloads back then. the mini 14 eats anything. Not a picky rifle. At least mine wasn't.
buy the way i am not saying its ok to do this. i was very foolish back then. i certanly would not do this today becasue i know better. just becasue my mini 14 didn't give me problems, that doesnt mean that one day it still will not. I am sure glad I didn't have an ar style rifle back then becuase i fear what might happen with an ar style gas system and long cases.
Who are you going to serve today?
