I don't expect to ever shoot competition or own hi-end weapons. I would like to know reloading appreciably better than I do, having a good balance of accuracy & economics. Brass management (@ this point) seems to be where I need clarity. What equipment, and what order to get it. I shoot Rem 700 vssf 22-250, & Savage m10 .223. I have others just not focused on them now, only interested in hunting apps.
I have RCBS dies & and Lee case trimmer. From what I can tell from the forum(s) i read, the Lee collet die, concentricity guages, neck trimming/turning tools (properly used) will give my brass longer life and accuracy appropriate with gun limitations+ load development. I guess what i need to prioritize (& budget 4) is a procedural progression; i.e.,start ; sorting, fireforming, annealing, guaging, trimming, turning,etc. I have read soooo many threads and I can't seem to decide what eq. to get or the procedure as to get optimum life/performance from avg. to hi-end brass. Is it possible to agree on procedure without debating necessity? Is there a publication that covers brass management? Can the "elite" reloaders succinctly describe their step by step approach to brass management. If @ a procedure you have a preference to Eq. brand list it. Thanks for your input. LB
