Sinclair developed this handy steel adapter so you could use Sinclair Primer Pocket Uniformers in you Lyman, Hornady, or RCBS powered case prep center.
Your new Sinclair Competition Shooting Rest will provide you with years of reliable service. Please read the following instructions as your new rest require some final assembly prior to use.
The cleaning tool head is slotted so as to hold the cleaning felts and cotton rolls. To insert the felt or cotton roll, back out the set screw, insert felt or cotton roll (centering in slot) and tighten set screw until it is no longer protruding from the tool head.
Flash-hole deburring is a one time operation that should be completed prior to loading new brass. This tool can also be used on fired cases that have not yet been flash-hole deburred.
There are very few differences between loads for long-range target shooting and hunting. When I work up a load for either, I look for a lot of the same things, including accuracy and uniform velocity for on-target hits.
Now that you’ve selected the best cases, deburred the flash holes and uniformed the primer pockets, it’s time for the last step of case preparation – trimming. Trimming your previously- fired cases to proper length is a step that must be done carefully, especially when you are trying to make the most accurate, consistent loads possible.
We wrote this article to see if we can open up some postings from some of the blog readers out there. If you would like to offer your two cents on how you go about developing a load, please feel free to post them on the blog for others to read.
The twist rate of the barrel on any rifle has a lot to do with bullet stabilization. Twist rate is defined as the distance in inches of barrel that the rifling takes to make one complete revolution. An example would be a 1:10 twist rate.
I can’t stress how important it is to keep your bolt and action clean. Shooters use a lot of grease and oil on their bolts to reduce friction and to prevent wear to the bearing surfaces.
The AR-15 is one of the most popular rifles used in service rifle competitions, 3-Gun competitions, tactical competitions, hunting, and just plain old plinking.
If you haven't tried flash hole deburring before as part of case preparation you may want to give it a try. During the manufacturing process, burrs are formed on the inside of the case when the flash hole is punched or drilled through.
Determining proper seating depth is probably one of the most important steps in preparing accurate, custom ammunition for your own rifle, unless you are loading for functionality in a magazine.
