22 Nosler: Premium Die Sets

New for 2017, Redding Reloading Equipment has expanded their offerings of Premium Die Sets with the addition of the 22 Nosler and the 6.5mm Creedmoor, two of the most popular cartridges. Branded as Premium Die Sets these new offerings include a Carbide Expander Button and a Micrometer Adjusting Seat Stem and are packaged in a distinctive black and gold box. 

The Carbide Expander Button reduces stress on the case neck and also is free floating, which many believe improves overall concentricity. The Micrometer Adjusting Seat Stem allows for precise bullet seating depth to 1/0.001" adding to the handloader's ability to find and repeat the perfect bullet jump for the best accuracy possible from his or her rifle.

The Standard Premium Die Sets have a Full Length sizing die and a Seating Die with Micrometer Seat Stem. The three die, Premium Deluxe Set has those two dies but also adds a Neck Sizing Die. Now, those seeking to improve their handloading potential in these two popular chamberings, need not add accessories but find it all packaged neatly in the Redding Black and Gold box of Premium Die Sets.

How to Determine Proper Bullet Seating Depth for YOUR Gun

Proper Bullet Seating Depth Banner
 

Tools:

 
  1. A cartridge case that has been fired in your gun, and not resized.
  2. A bullet of the type to be used, with a full, undamaged nose.
  3. Calipers.
  4. A dark felt-tipped marker.
 

 

Process:

 

Step 1

Insert the bullet into the neck of the fired case. It should fall freely into the case, with no resistance.

Step 2

Remove the bullet from the fired case and press the case neck lightly on a flat surface to create a small indentation or flat surface in the case neck so that it will grip the bullet.

Step 3

Insert the bullet, base first, into the case so that the case just grips the bullet by itself.  Just get the bullet started into the case—don’t seat it too deeply.

Step 4

Completely color the bullet with the marker.

Step 5

Gently insert the case and bullet into the chamber of the firearm, and close the action. Do not pull the trigger.

Step 6

Carefully open the action and gently remove the case.

Step 7

Retrieve the bullet. It will either be stuck up in the lands of the barrel or still in the case. If the bullet is stuck in the lands, it can be removed by tapping the butt of the gun on the ground. Or, it can be dislodged by gently pushing it out with a cleaning rod. If the bullet is still in the case, then gently remove it with your fingers, taking care not to mar the ink, and proceed to step 8.

Step 8

During Step 5, the lands will have contacted the bullet and pushed it back into the case, causing the case neck to scrape the ink off of the bearing surface of the bullet. Simply push the bullet into the case until the edge of the case neck is just to where the ink has been scraped off.

Step 9

Carefully measure the overall length of the dummy cartridge. This overall length is called your “rifle seating” depth. It is where the bullet contacts the lands of the barrel. This length is different for every different type of bullet, as it depends upon the shape of the ogive (the taper) and the meplat (the tip of the nose) of the bullet. This process should be repeated three or four times to obtain a consistent average.

Step 10

A. Set your seating die to seat at a depth between .015 and .03 inches less than your rifle seating depth.

B. Lightweight bullets may need to be seated further from the rifling. A depth of one bullet diameter inside the case neck gives good alignment and neck tension for ignition.

C. The overall length must be short enough to function through the magazine.

 

New Master Hunter Die Sets

Master Hunter Bob Nosler

Master Hunter Bob Nosler

 

Announced today, via Cortland, NY- For 2017, Redding Reloading Equipment is offering their Master Hunter die set for three additional cartridges. New this year are 22 Nosler, 33 Nosler and 6.5 Creedmoor.

These new Master Hunter die sets include a full-length sizing die coupled with the highly respected Redding Competition Seating Die.

The Redding Competition Seating Die is recognized as a superior straight line, seating die, which supports the case and controls the bullet for the best concentricity possible with the components used. The Competition Seating Die does not contain a crimp but today many premium, hunting bullets lack a "crimp groove" for a traditional roll crimp function.

Nosler Ballistic Tip® Line Now Includes Unique Sub-Sonic Offering

 

Nosler®, Inc. announced today the addition of a long-awaited .30 220 gr. bullet option to the company’s renowned Ballistic Tip hunting bullet line. Only available previously in loaded ammunition, the new offering enters the line-up after overwhelming feedback from consumers to make the bullet available as a component for handloaders. This bullet was created to maximize effective terminal performance for the 300 AAC Blackout cartridge at sub-sonic velocities. At 1000 fps, the Ballistic Tip® bullet reliably exhibits controlled, double-diameter expansion, 90% weight retention and 18” of penetration in ballistic gelatin.

Nosler Unveils Two Additions to the AccuBond Long Range Line

30 Caliber 168 Grain ABLR Bullet
ABLR+338+Caliber+265+Grain+Bullet.jpg
 

Nosler’s successful AccuBond® Long Range (ABLR) bullet line is welcoming two much anticipated bullets to the existing lineup with the 30 168 gr and 338 265 gr ABLR. The 30 168 gr ABLR was designed to maximize downrange performance in cartridges with less than magnum case capacities, such as the ubiquitous 308 Winchester and 30-06. With a remarkable B.C. and moderate weight, this bullet will push the boundaries further than ever before.

For .338 caliber enthusiasts, the long awaited 338 265 gr ABLR is now part of the lineup as well. This bullet is the perfect complement to .338 cartridges with large case capacity, such as the recently introduced 33 Nosler, and is the ideal solution for long range shots. The 265 gr ABLR also has high weight for caliber and a high BC, which produces exceptional external ballistics.  

Developed through a combination of bullet manufacturing techniques unique to Nosler, the design of the AccuBond®-LR allows for the highest B.C. possible in a bullet of the same caliber and weight. Designed with an optimum terminal performance window ranging from 3,200fps down to 1,300fps, the unique tapered jacket geometry and proprietary bonding process of the ABLR allow it to expand rapidly for effective energy transfer and significant tissue damage while retaining sufficient weight to ensure deep penetration into the vitals. The AccuBond® bonding process allows the ABLR to perform reliably on game throughout the entire velocity range, eliminating the problem of being “too close” often encountered with other high-B.C. bullets. The high-performance boat tail, long ogive, and polymer tip combine to make the ABLR the sleekest, flattest- shooting, bonded, hunting bullet ever created.
