    no permission, and broken links. Admins, not much of a sticky if you can't access things and most (except for the youtube links) are gone.

    Just about anywhere. The bullet diameter is actually .308 so it uses the same bullets as any other .308 rifle.

    The Sierra manuals lists load data and bullet selection for the Swiss.

    In any event, once you pick a bullet, check Powder Valley Inc - they have a lot of them in stock. I don't load for the Swiss but I do use a lot of the 175 gr HPBT.

    Dear GTR admins,

    Please delete (or at least un-sticky) this thread. It was of some use years ago, but I can't keep it updated. it's OK, no hard feelings.

    Your friend.

    I reloaded for many years, as a necessity due to my line of work. May I humbly suggest that as well as studying all the material on the subject. That you approach somebody you know who reloads and ask if you can sit in and watch them whilst they reload. Sometimes it clears up any thing you may be unsure of and if they use several different types of press it will help determine what will suit your needs.

    I started reloading in 1958 with my grandfather when I was a wee lad. We used an old Ideal C press and then started casting with single bullet Ideal molds(all now Lyman) and have progressed to casting from pistols to rifles with detours into buck shot and SG slugs. Now my cost for cast rifle rounds is under $.10 each and all of the equipment has long since been amortized. Yesterday I cast 750+ 6.5 X 55 Swede bullets in three hours.

    A bit of great advise came from The Old Bloke, find someone that reloads and ask them for guidance and to watch them actually reload. Then if you want to get into casting look even harder to find who casts and get them to let you watch as they cast. Those individuals will become great resources. And yes I have always cast for my Glocks and became a Glock Meister using my cast bullets.
