    Best words of Wisdom I can give you. Get a couple of good reloading manuals. There are several goods one to pick from,
    and Welcome.
    By the way we have a reloading section here.

    Lost in Kali? Yeah, family and jobs can do that to you.

    my short list:
    * get a .264 cal collet and a collet bullet puller. Very handy to fix loading/eating mistakes.
    * Get several reloading manuals, Speer, Hornady, Sierra, Nosler, etc.
    * Get a neck sizing die. Will help with consistency and will extend brass life. Full case re-size every 3-5 neck sizing to prevent hard extraction.
    * If you haven't tried them yet, check Lapua 139gr scenars Lapua Bullets for Rifles - Lapua Scenar Rifle Bullets at Volume Discount Prices, No Minimum Purchase Required
    * I am still on the fence about molly coated bullets, but, in your case, since you are reloading for a barrel burner, I'd look into it.

    Ah, and, welcome! How is life for a deer hunter in Kali? I suspect you live in NE Kali, where life is more like OR and ID, if laws aren't, hopefully.
