carrying a cleaning rod along

Postby bucksnbears » Wed Dec 01, 2010 5:25 pm

just a post on what i do. i'm doing alot of reloading for various guns and just bump back the shooulders on my cases. i don't full lenght resise. however, after loading a case lots of times sometimes you can still get case head seperation. i've been carrying a cleaning rod with a bronze brush in the truck in case it happens when i'm hunting. i've only needed it twice but it can save the day :)

When I first started to reload, I didn't trim for a few reloadings on my.223, empting the rifle I saw powder fly, had to drive home to get cleaning rod to push bullet out the chamber!lol, now my T.20 bullets they probably can't find the lands before fired!

I just FL resize. Than I dont have to worry about a round chambering tightly, not chambering, or seizing up.

On my longer trips I have one or two cleaning rods along and also bring atleast 3 rifles for just incase... Cases can seperate sometimes , a bullet can get stuck in the throat, or a gun canbe accidently dropped and snow and dirt can get lodged inside the barrel. Be prepared.....
