re: Question for Bapple about reloading:


Buck my first post to you EVER was with respect. I asked you to share some of your knowledge (which you implied you had ample amounts of, btw) when you criticized another poster's work/outputs. You chose to change the subject. I then told you that you appeared to be a theorist rather than a practitioner. Then the fight started. Until you post something of substance I've got you down as a troll and or alter.

re: Question for Bapple about reloading:


DT,
Welcome to the world of handloading! You've posed some good questions. Handloading can be a VERY rewarding hobby. I've been doing it now for a VERY long time. One of the MAIN goals of handloading is to learn to do it SAFELY! Remember, a loaded round is basically a bomb. As long as I've been doing it, I still catch myself every now and then making a small mistake, usually due to a lapse in attention or a change in my technique. Every experienced handloader can tell you of a handful of "near misses" he's had.

The single best piece of advice was given a few pages back before the "distractions."
quote:

I think you need to buy some reloading manuals and spend some time studying before beginning to reload.

The BEST thing you can do right now is to buy yourself at least one (2 would be better) reputable handloading manuals. This will provide you basic, and safe, handloading practices. I've found the manuals from Hodgdon, Hornady, Sierra and Nosler the most useful. You'll also get safe, well-tested load data (think of them as recipes that tell you what powder to use and how much powder to use w/ certain bullets) . You have to beware of handloading data off the 'net that's NOT been pressure tested. Hodgdon also have a good online site w/ loading data.

Now, to answer your original questions:
1. There are some situations where some seasoned handloader might substitute small rifle powders for small pistol powders. I would not suggest this for you since they're not really interchangeable.
2. There are only a few instances where a single powder could be used for both the 223 Rem and the 9mm. I don't think you'll enjoy the limitations you'd have to live w/ by using a single powder for both. Get different powders for the two. For the 223 Rem, I like Hodgdon 322, Benchmark, Vihtavuori 133 and Vihtavuori 135, but there are a LOT of great 223 powders.

Application of the term troll is subjective. Some readers may characterize a post as trolling, while others may regard the same post as a legitimate contribution to the discussion, even if controversial. My initial postings were controversial, so some took this as trolling. If you ask me a specific question, I will either answer it with facts, tell you that I do not have an answer or give you my personal preference while letting you know that it is only my personal preference and carries no merit.

I asked you to share some of your knowledge...
Have you even read any of my initial posts, or did you just skip to where things got out of hand with the name calling and accusations? In every thread that I have posted in, I have answered the original question with my knowledge and experience. If you want an answer to another question, then start a new thread.

Not trying to sound like a dick, but problems can happen with reloading if you don't understand what is happening.


This. Seriously, why would anyone want to experiment with something for which there is no load data?

Unless you are an engineer trained in testing ammo, you are just begging to get hurt in an accident.
