What’s within the Field?
This equipment begins with the Ammomaster 50 BMG press with a ⅞” bushing and a ram priming unit. The lever arm comes individually in the identical bundle. Additionally included are three 1 ½” dies—a sizer/deprimer, bullet seater and case trim die. Two Allen keys, a shellholder, case lube and written directions spherical out the bundle.
The Ammomaster press setup was straightforward and simple, however the place to place the press required some thought. I had a fast change plate helpful (doubled up ¾” laminated plywood) with two RCBS common mounting plates.
That is all a part of the Final Reloader bench system. Happily, this press labored with one of many plates, so I slid the bolts in and secured it. Deal with set up is identical as different RCBS press handles – take away the nut, slide the deal with by way of the opening and tighten the nut down once more. The shellholder comes subsequent. It has ⅞” -14 threading and a daily die lock ring to safe it. Swing the primer catcher into place, and also you’re achieved!
Resizing and Trimming
I first wanted to take away the bushing contained in the press to make room for the 1 ¼” dies. This bushing is included so the person can run common ⅞” x 14 dies as properly. Setup is rather like common resizing dies. Run the ram up and screw the die down till it touches the highest of the shellholder with some cam over.
I then utilized the included Case Lube-2 to a bit of deprimed navy brass, rubbing it over the surface and utilizing Q-Tricks to attain the within of the case neck. After resizing, I ran the brass by way of a 50 BMG case gauge. I didn’t must trim my brass, but when I did must, I might use the included trim die. This die works a bit of in another way than different dies. Decrease the trim die till it contacts the shellholder. The case will go into the die. Something protruding exterior the die might be filed off.
Ordinarily, I’d be priming brass utilizing the Ammomaster ram priming unit and including powder earlier than seating a bullet.
For this demo, I’m making a dummy cartridge as I can’t discover primers! To set the seating die, I used an entire ball ammo cartridge as a reference. I lowered the die with the ram up and the cartridge in place till I felt it hit. My closing step was to screw the seater plug down till it contacted the bullet.
I used Hornady 150 grain A-Max 50 cal. Match bullets.
Shifting ahead, I’ll be showcasing extra 50 BMG reloading gear (as soon as I discover primers!) and together with extra content material with the “Unimaginable Hulk!”
