BE A SHEEPDOG
Sheep are powerless to defend against the wolf. The sheep will fall prey to any attacks on the flock by wolves. A Sheepdog spends every day blending in with the flock. Unlike the sheep, the Sheepdog has all the same abilities that the wolf does. The only difference is the wolf intends to prey on the sheep and the Sheepdog intends to protect them. BE A SHEEPDOG! Wolves beware…..we’re packin’ too…..your game is over!

The Kinetic ® Bullet Puller by Quinetics Corp. is 100% American made and is designed to separate bullets from their casing using “Kinetic Energy”. This bullet puller can fit many different calibers of rifle and pistol ammunition from .22 Hornet through .45-70. If used correctly, it’s very long lasting and also comes with an extended warranty. If you reload ammunition frequently, the Kinetic® Bullet Puller is a great investment for your longtime hobby.
A quick rap extracts the bullet from the casing with no damage to components. Working with the principles of kinetic energy, it’s the bounce that removes the bullet from the case. If the bullet does not come out the first time, simply tighten the chuck and rap again.The patented “New Twist” Chuck Assembly evenly grips and holds the case; bullet and powder are caught, so there’s no waste. For all popular rifle and pistol, rim, or rimless center fire cartridges. NOT for use with rim fire cartridges or explosive projectile ammo.

INSIGHT OF THE MONTH:
As you learn more about reloading supplies and get more experienced with reloading your own ammunition, you’ll eventually want to improve the accuracy of your ammo. Once you’ve mastered the basics and feel comfortable with reloading and all the processes that come with it, it’s time to start taking stock of the things in your workflow that might affect the overall consistency of your ammunition.
Here’s the basic rule: Accuracy comes from consistency. Ammunition that has been reloaded with consistency in mind will be more accurate than ammo that has not, and the reloader’s goal should always be the most accurate, consistent reloadings he or she can manage. Focusing on consistency will make your reloading not just more enjoyable, but safer and more efficient as well.
If consistency is your goal, you should be using brass from the same production run. You can mix and match brass if you’re short on reloading supplies, but brass that shares a production run will always be more consistent than brass from a bunch of different manufacturers and sessions. No matter what kind of brass you choose one step that is key to getting high accuracy is to sort the brass by weight. Many folks like to sort their brass before prepping, but it might be better to sort it after prepping, especially for high-accuracy applications. A good practice is to use cases that weigh within plus or minus .2 or .3 grains of each other.
Clean-burning, temperature stable powder is always going to deliver more consistent performance. While lower quality powders are available and will cost less in the short run, high quality powder is a necessity if you’re shifting the focus of your reloading supplies to creating consistency.
Carefully measuring your powder load is one of the single most important things you can do to control ammunition consistency. Eyeballing it simply isn’t enough if you’re working to improve accuracy in your shots. Test different powder loads with your brass to get a feel for what works best and then strive to match those loads exactly in every reload.
You can get started with reloading by picking up the very basics in reloading supplies. But the better your equipment, the more precise your reloads. A high quality die is an absolute must, as is a very precise scale. Your reloads are only as good as your gear.
