Hornady® Reloading and Bullet Accuracy DVD
To each of these shooters the accuracy. With which he can place each shot is of prime importance an inaccurate rifle or. Cartridge is in the same class as an unfaithful wife a leaky boat or a bird. Dog that officially false points we're. Better off without them I'm joyce. Hornady you might say accuracy is my business i make bullets this is chuck. Schreiber accuracy is his business to. Mrs. ralph in singer leo lee ken maduro. Melvin holmes whose jobs are to build. Accuracy into the tools and dyes and machines that make our bullet. That doesn't mean 10 these bookmaking. Presses with all the loving care a mother bestows on an only child these. Voting. These craftsmen and dennis o'neil. Ron miller. Richard musica and gary bull. Him down bob andrew this is the plant. Superintendent dale francis he worries a. Lot too because accuracy is also his problem and this is reuben hayes he. Fires sample bullets from each of these machines in our super accurate test barrels to make certain that our accuracy standards are being met and to. Bring things to hold if they're not our kind of accuracy isn't something easily come by it isn't found anywhere in the. World in at the pure state and you cannot buy it by the pound and even when. You have it can easily slip away we. Have to build it into our bullets carefully not ten thousandth of an inch. And a tenth of a grain at a time no accuracy just doesn't happen you have. To make it happen with tools with men. With materials with machines with. Bullets and what rifles this is the sort. Of 200-yard group a good many shooters get as you can see hitting a prairie dog. At that range would be pretty much a matter of good luck rather than good shooting even many woodchucks would be. Missed or only wounded that 200 yards are beyond varmint shooters really do. Need better accuracy than this, and they can get it takes a good look at this. Target I've just started now let's see. If i can put two more right in there. Good now that's what i call varmint. Accuracy but we can only get it with a. Good rifle properly bedded and having a. Smooth trigger pull shooting hand loads. Carefully made from selected fire form. Cases with the proper powder charge and. The best possible bullets seated to the. Right depth however bear in mind that. Factory ammo has to be made to fit all. Kinds of rifles with all kinds of chamber dimensions in a wide variety of. Actions bolt slide lever auto loaders and. Single shot hand loads however can be. Made up for an individual rifle and its chamber without compromise so it can. Bring out its best capabilities as it. Did with my rifle and as it can with yours this 1/2 minute of angle group. Really means that if our own shooting skill is up to it prairie dogs can be consistently hit at 200 yards in there. And wood chips can be cleanly killed at 3 to 400 yards now what did it take to. Produce the hand loads that made this rifle shoot so well only these. Components empty once fired cases. Primers powder bullets plus this. Equipment powder measure scales. Loading press a set of dies some case. Lube and a loading manual yes such a. Book is also part of the hand loaders basic equipment just possibly the most. Important item of all for here's. Contained the step-by-step instructions a novice needs to undertake the making of his own cartridges plus most of the. Data required by both the beginner and. Experience freeloader regardless of the caliber gun or type of game for which he is loading and loading could hardly be. Easier or safer unfortunately hundreds of years ago. Gunpowder got a bad reputation because. It blew up ships and building. Black-powder ignite it so easily and. Exploded so violently like this but. Modern smokeless powders on the other hand are propellants and merrily burn. When ignited unless tightly confined in. Fact you have many more dangerous substances around the house like. Gasoline for your lawnmower paint dinner. Her hair sprays. Remember this is just a demonstration. We certainly don't recommend the use of. Flame around gunpowder this film is not. Intended to teach you the basic steps of. Reloading your emmanuel can do it much better there, but we want to show you. Certain aspects that are difficult to. Understand in words or still pictures. For securing the ultimate in accuracy. And performance from your rifle and your ammo it will help if you more fully. Understand some of the more complex factors involved what really happened in. The chamber of this rifle when the cartridge was fired how is the case. Affected the bullet perhaps we could better understand if we look directly into the chamber through the magic of movies using stop action. And instant replay now we can exaggerate. Clearances that normally would be difficult to see and to slow down the action enough to give us time to observe and understand what is happening this. Way we can see that this new factory load is a somewhat loose fit in this chamber and the bullet is not in perfect. Alignment with the bore that the case. Doesn't contact the front of the chamber. But as the firing pin strikes it moves. The case forward so that it does this. Gives a little head space there not a dangerous amount as the firing pin continues and fires the primer notice. That the violence of the flashbacks the primer partly out of the pocket as the. Powder is ignited and the pressure builds up the brass case expands to. Completely fill the chamber preventing. Any escape of gas to the rear as the. Pressure continues to build the case is forced so tightly against the chamber walls but it cannot move but the brass. Eventually has to stretch in this area when the pressure is great enough to force the case head back against the bolt or breach block the primer then. Being receded in its pocket as the. Bullet exits up the barrel. Pressure drops the cates cools and contracts enough to extract easily. This is a 308 case fired with a normal. Load but in a chamber having excess headspace it is a classic example of how. Excess headspace causes cases to stretch. At this critical point it would almost. Certainly have separated on the next. Firing as did this case but now let's. Look at another type of case the rim type notice that as the find pin hits. The primer the case cannot move forward appreciably because the rim not the. Shoulder positions it because the rimmed. Head is virtually in contact with the bolt face or breech block this case will not stretch as much here as did the. Rimless case we looked at first unless the action is an exceptionally weaker stretchy one there is a third type of popular rifle case the belted type the. So called magnum the belt is in effect. The rim moved forward rather than at the. Rear its chambers like this being. Positioned by the belt it is moved forward only slightly by the firing pin regardless of space at the shoulder after firing there is very little. Stretch in the critical head region. Let's have a look at that limbless case. The 243 we first had in that animated. Chamber remember it was expanded to fit. The chamber exactly and it could now be put back in except the neck at least. Will have to be resized because it will not now hold a bullet so here we are. Face to face with a decision that plagues and confused so many re loaders. Whether the next size only for the. Full-length resize that cartridge case. Let's just next size first and see what. That does for us because this die does not exert pressure on the body the case no lubrication is required all we need. To do is lift the neck lightly and some powdered graphite then into the diet. Goes most cartridge cases can be. Next sized only in a normal full length. Die by unscrewing it slightly but a proper neck die like this is best a. Primer and now we'll switch dies so we. Concede a new bullet when we're ready for it some powder. A bullet and we're in business again. Next sizing not only will extend case. Life to a remarkable degree for reasons. We'll go into later but even more important it usually promotes better accuracy because now when this cartridge. Is chambered in the same rifle it is an almost perfect fit headspace is just. Right with all cases be they rim belted or rimless and what is even more helpful the bullet is almost perfectly aligned. With the bore when this cartridge is fired the striker does not drive the case forward because the shoulder is already in virtual contact with the chamber and because the head has always. Been in contact with the bolt face the. Case is not subject to stretching in this critical area but even if you. Adjust your full length sized eye to eliminate any excess head space as I've. Just done you can see the brass is still. Being worked by the side die reducing. The diameter of the case lengthens it as the metal has to go somewhere but now. This case is no longer the perfect fit for the chamber that it was after it had first been fired except for having no. Excess headspace is almost as loose a. Fit as a brand-new case nevertheless it. Does present the bullet well aligned with the bore of course there could be some misalignment due the case or chamber eccentricity. If shooter continues to pull like three. Sizes cases the cases will lengthen. Require trimming possibly after three or four rounds it must be trimmed because. When it is chambered in this condition the mouth or edge of the neck will come up against the chamber throat before the bolt is fully closed or the case shoulder has contacted the chamber because the bolt has such powerful. Camming action this varmint shooter never realizes that he is actually crimping the case mouth firmly into the bullet and that at this point the case. Is solidly wedged between the throat and the bullet so that it cannot expand to release the bullet therefore pressure. Can and most certainly will go dangerously high just watch what. Happens man i sure put together a hot. Load that time lord harry doesn't. Realize just what a hot load he did have or why it gave him such a belt in the cheek but if he doesn't study is loading. Manual or get some advice from a friend who knows something about loading he'll. End up with something much worse than a sore face hey son take a good look at. That case head you thought it was only a. Good hot load but it was really a. Dangerous one and you'll find the case head says so just as plainly as if it. Could talk isn't there a sort of crater around the firing pin mark and isn't the primer itself pretty well flattened sure is and wasn't the brass. Extruded into the ejector slot yes sir. Toss that case to me and I'll see just how much too long it is just as i. Thought almost 20 thousands to long and. 3,000 head expansion three thousandths. May not sound like much but even a half a thousandth is an indication of high pressure you better do a little homework. In your loading manual and keep this to. Remind you to look after your cases bear in mind they're trying their best to keep 50,000 pounds per square inch of. Hot gas from getting in your eye while. Necks are lengthened by full length resizing case life is shortened for the. Continuous working of the brass between. The chamber and the die stretches it and will eventually produce the crack then. Complete head separation hot loads even. If the next search end is needed speed. Up this process so my advice is the next. Size only whenever possible but remember it is necessary to full-length resize four pumps lever actions and auto loaders and. Even for bolt-action rifles if the. Cartridge cases will be used in a different gun choice i think we should. Remind the shooters the bullet seating has a considerable effect on accuracy in. Many rifles yes and on pressure and. Velocity could we have that drawing of the rifles chamber again good you see. This section just ahead of the chamber before the rifling starts this is called. The lead throat or free boar it is. Really the bore of the barrel with the rifling reamed away it varies considerably in length and in the angle. At which the rifling is cut according to the use of different factories cartridge designers barrel and gun makers this. Variation in the distance the bullet travels before entering the rifling. Results in great differences in velocity. And pressure with any given load in different rifles I'll show you why this. Is a normal load with the bullet seated to allow what would actually measure about 1/32 of an inch before it contacts. The rifling notice how the pressure. Builds very steadily and smoothly even as the bullet enters the rifling now. I'll take the same load with the bullet seated deeper so it can travel further. Before taking the rifling this bullet. Meets no resistance as it moves through the throat and so gets a good run at the rifling pressure is lower than normal. And because the gas has more room in. Which to expand the pressure never reaches our normal figure nor does the. Velocity which was only 3,400 instead of. 3,500 feet per second let's take out. Standard load and see how it's affected if we set the bullet well out so that. We'll actually contact the rifling and be marked by it.
