S4 – 01 – A Look At Our Reloading Dies

Reloading dies are an essential tool for reloading ammunition and come in a wide variety of makes, models, configurations and price points. This vast array of choices caters to the needs in the market place but can be confusing to the casual reloader or those just beginning to reload their ammo. In this video the 6.5 Guys share their perspective on die selection for competing in precision rifle. They also share tips for enhancing die performance and incremental improvements reloaders can make to improve the overall quality and consistency of their hand loaded ammunition.

S4 – 02 – A Look at Lapua 6.5 Creedmoor Brass

Over the last few years the 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge has become increasingly popular among precision rifle enthusiasts. However, availability of brass cases was limited to only a few manufacturers. In early 2017 Lapua introduced to the market its own 6.5 Creedmoor case with a unique twist – the case has a small rifle primer pocket (vs large rifle primer pocket).

In this episode the 6.5 Guys received a brand new box of these cases from the good folks at Grafs & Sons to test for this video episode. The guys take a sample of the cases to conduct a number of weight and dimensional measurements to assess the level of consistency of the cases. Additionally they subject a case to a durability test to see how many repeated firings and resizing/reloading cycles it can hold up to.
