Guide to adapting from lead-core to monolithic bullets

If you are new to monolithic bullets here is what to understand and digest before buying any monolithic bullet. Due to the lower density of copper, monolithic bullets have slightly more volume than lead-core bullets for the same weight. For the same weight they are a little longer than lead-core bullets. If you insist to shoot the same weight check that the rifle twist is correctly matched to the monolithic bullet. A good rule of thumb is to shoot a 15 to 20% lighter monolithic bullet than previously preferred lead-core bullets. If you want to shoot the same shape and length in monolithic bullets a little weight (10% to 15%) has to be sacrificed, which will necessitate a faster twist. [...]

Reasons For Crooked Bullet Seating

Because reloading bullets can be dangerous is is of the utmost importance that you follow the reloading process as precisely and accurately as possible. This is particularly true when seating bullets into the necks of the brass cases. Even though a bullet with crooked seating will not damage the barrel of the rifle it is important to remember that it will have inferior accuracy. When the crooked bullet leaves the barrel a slight imbalance causes it to take a direction that is not perfectly aligned with the bore. Common reasons for crooked bullet seating: When a cartridge neck is flared too widely, or the case isn’t fitted tightly enough around the bullet, crooked bullet seating may result. Bullets may [...]

Improving Your Electronic Reloading Scale’s Accuracy

We believe that there are a few dos and don'ts every reloader should be aware of when using and buying an electronic reloading scale. Because many reloaders aren't aware of the things that affect electronic reloading scale accuracy, they assume that the problem is with the scale. Here's our dos and don'ts to ensure that you get the most accurate reading from your reloading scale. 7 Dos and don'ts for electronic reloading scales Do not rely on any scale with a minimum reading/resolution of 0.1 grain if you intend to achieve small variations in muzzle velocity. A resolution of 0.01 grain should be the norm. Try not to trickle slowly onto electronic scales because the reading will become inaccurate. If [...]

Measuring Gunpowder: Weight vs Volume

A common yet technical question that everyone asks is “What is the best way to measure gun powder?” While some never measure the volume, they like weighing it on a scale in grains. However, the importance of knowing the volume in a load is critical but it’s near impossible to adjust precisely. The density of the powder changes overtime and that is the general theory. The powder absorbs moisture and that is why volume provides consistency. Meaning - A steadier total gun powder dose than weight. You may also have read that because of the shape of the grains (greater space between them) the light charge of a particular volume is light. This increases the burning speed as the [...]

Common Waterbuck | May 2013 | Corno van Rooyen

While on a hunting trip in the Limpopo valley we spotted a huge Waterbuck one day and two days later we were fortunate enough to get a second chance. There were a few Waterbuck cows next to a filled water pan and I suspected that a bull would be with the herd. Unfortunately the herd smelled us and ran off about 1 kilometre past a mountain ridge. As they passed the neck of the kopje (hill) we saw that there was a bull with the herd, trailing behind. We were in hot pursuit and I had the feeling that this was the bull we were looking for. We went around the second kopje and saw the cows against the ridge trying to cross [...]
