So that it feeds into the chamber and, even more importantly, extracts back out easily.

You're not going to get benchrest accuracy (groups in the 1's) out of a RPR or out of most any "precision" rifle out there so why waste your time and compromise reliable feeding and extraction by using benchrest-only resizing?

This isn't that complicated.

Get a Redding Type S die with a small assortment of neck size bushings. Set the die to push the shoulder back .001 - .002, use the bushings to tune neck tension, and let the die body resize the case body.

If you don't use a sizing button in conjunction with the type S die, you'll need to turn the neck OD to end up with even wall thickness inside the neck.

Or get a redding body die and a Lee collet die.

Either way.. neck sizing only sucks. Even the LR benchrest guys FL size now days.

 a Lee collet die.

 

 

I tried one of those once.  It was the biggest POS reloading tool I have ever owned in my life.

Meh. Neck size and bump the shoulder back a few thousandths. Why work the brass any more than you have to? If your bore's not concentric, you've got bigger things to worry about than brass.

So I went to the stupid ass gun store to pick up my revolver that I bought when I ordered the Ruger. They got my Ruger in yesterday. Picked it up, no BUIS = gay. Also, expected to have to wait a few weeks so currently have no fancy ass glass and no ammo, brass, dies or bullets. And of course the store was all out of 6.5 Creedmoor ammo.

Looking at the Nikon 3.5 - 14 X 50 FFP scope or the SWFA SS 3-15 X 42. Thoughts? Of to buy dies and ammo...

I think you should start a new thread.

In case you don't start a new thread, I have the SWFA SS 3-15 X 42 on my 22 Precision Rifle trainer and it is a very nice scope. The one thing it did not have was a zero stop but some guys on the hide are selling a washer kit that works great! I would buy the SWFA over the Nikon but that is just me...

I thought ballers used March and baller wannabe's and poors used Nightforce.

You are thinking of benchrest. Baller PRS guys shoot Schmidt & Bender and Khales and poor PRS guys shoot Vortex PST.

Nightforce is the league minimum for the baller PRS guys to not make fun of you.

Yeah I am in the Bushnell camp for my PR a XRS 4.5-30x 50mm with the H59. LOVE IT! Most of the guys I shoot with use USO and they make fun of me.

Based on the shit displayed at SHOT SHOW 2016, I think it's safe to say that the following to items are the new "MF'n hotness"

 

 

*Skip to 3:10 for functional lvl3 ballistic rated Boba Fett body armor*


And then there's this:

*integrally suppressed pistol starts at 0:24

I want to shoot a match in Boba Fett armor that works, bonus to shoot it with a RoboCop pistol.

My inner Timmie is all a'quivver in anticipation.

Ballers go to the store for powder and primers and leave with a couple new guns.

March seems gay. Bragging that the company had a combined 50 years in optical engineering experience? I bet you could spit into a random cube farm at Nikon and get that. Nikon and Canon put big money into developing big dollar lenses where optical quality gets scrutinized to a degree not even the most anal retentive shooter can match.

Guano - sorry in advance - if I have anything more to say on the topic I'll start a new thread.

3 round groups are also generally gay, but here's one from today with my shitty Nikon 3-9 P223.

200 yards, factory Hornady 120 GR AMAX, Ruger Precision Rifle in 6.5 mm.

This gun is retardedly awesome for a bolt gun.

I saw a picture of the RPR and it looked cool. You haven't even posted a picture. What's up with that?
