The dates are set for 2019 Saturdays from 9:30 AM to 2:30 PM on the following dates: March 9, April 13 & May 4 at the COSC Clubhouse.

Email or call for cartridge you want to tune to your Rifle, Carbine & Pistols. Chances are we’ll have dies and all you’ll need is your brass and bullet size you want. We’ll take emails at:
reloadingroupcosc@gmail.com.

Reloading is free for all COSC members and guests to reload, chronograph and customize for your gun. There is an amazing difference to discover with the combined knowledge available on Saturday’s at COSC.

March 2019 Update

Any of you have one of those Winchester Short Magnums that came out a few years back or a 300 Ultra Magnum, 300 Win Mag or even ended up with your grandpa’s prized Weatherby Magnum and tried to buy a box of ammo lately? Prices range from $50 to $90 a box.  Sometimes even higher! That’s $2.50 to $4.50 per shot!!  Who can afford that?? Or you might have your favorite 30-06 or 270 deer rifle with accuracy that resembles a shotgun pattern target. Or anyone else that would like to improve the accuracy of your favorite rifle.

The COSC reloading group may be able to help out. Today bullet manufactures, Hornady, Nosler, Spear, Barnes, Swift and more have advanced bullet technology to all new levels with solid copper and bonded bullets that are so much more accurate with ballistics far superior to the old standby “Core-Locke” you’ve been missing deer with. These new bullets are capable of 1” to 2’’ MOA in some sporting rifles, at 100 yards. Maybe you have even looked at a starter reloading package at Cabella’s but thought your ability may make you dangerous or it was too expensive or too daunting an endeavor for you.

If you’re looking for help, the reloading group may be just the ticket. If it’s price, we can load a box of 300 Weatherby Magnums for about the same as a box of 30-06’s (if you have the brass). That’s right if you have the used (or new) brass, a box of 300 Wby Mags cost about the same as a box of 30-06’s!

The example cost may go something like this:  A box of premium bullets, (50 per box) will run $40 – $45, (some bullets may be 100 count boxes). A box of 100 primers cost $4. And a pound of powder is about $32.  (A pound will load about 100 rounds in a big magnum, more in smaller calibers). From here there are many different powders and bullets to experiment with to achieve whatever accuracy goals you would like. The sky is really the limit. A side note here, if we don’t have your particular caliber dies, you may have to make a one time buy, about $43, some 3-die sets run higher.

Drop in on any of the Saturdays we’re meeting to take a look, ask questions and even have a try at reloading.
