Handloads: .30-30 Winchester

You’d think a cartridge introduced when Grover Cleveland was president would be nothing but an artifact by now, but the .30-30 Win. is doing quite well as it celebrates its 125th birthday this year.

Handloads: .300 Winchester Short Magnum

Federal’s new Terminal Ascent bullet traces its origin to the Trophy Bonded Bear Claw developed by Jack Carter back in 1985, with a front lead core bonded to a solid shank of copper.

Handloads: 7 mm-08 Remington

The 7 mm-08 Rem. has been a favorite hunting cartridge of mine going on 30 years now. A broad selection of bullets has always been one of its best attributes.

Handloads: .25-35 Winchester

Most every used-gun rack contains at least several Winchester Model 94s. Most are chambered in .30-30 Win., but a surprising number are chambered in .25-35 Win. Actually, quite a few rifles have been made to fire .25-35.

Precise measuring of propellant is critical to maintaining consistent accuracy and velocity in reloading, and the best way to ensure consistency is to weigh each charge, or is it?

A New Rifle and Loads For The .22-250 Remington

For handloaders, part of the pleasure of a new rifle is developing handloads that maximize its effectiveness in the roles for which it was purchased.

Handloads: 6.5 mm Grendel

The 6.5 mm Grendel cartridge only looks small. Instead of burning copious charges of propellant, the Grendel lets its slender 0.264"-diameter bullets do the heavy-lifting of producing flat trajectories.

From the Loading Bench: Creedmoor Commotion

Unless you have been touring the outer reaches of the solar system, you have heard that the 6.5 mm Creedmoor is the best thing to arrive in the shooting world since the advent of self-contained cartridges.

Handloads: 7.62x39 mm (Russian)

Barrel bore and bullet diameters are all over the place for the 7.62x39 mm (Russian) with the former measuring from 0.308" to 0.311" and the latter being 0.308", 0.310", 0.311" or 0.312".

Handloads: .223 Remington

The .223 Rem. cartridge paired with 50-gr. bullets offers a lot of utility across a wide range of shooting pursuits, from targets to varmints as large as coyotes.
