FS: H&N .314 Swaged 32 S&W Clones

Post by zanemoseley on 11/3/2018, 2:33 pm

First topic message reminder :

I just got my swaging setup from Larry Blackmon, it's making some beautiful bullets. To help defer the cost of the equipment I figured I would offer some bullets for sale.

My setup converts the Speer Plinker bullets into H&N clones, they are .314 diameter and are very crisp and uniform. They make the Speers look bad to say the least.

Also there is some good info here about the H&N clones.

My setup is the same as Greg's setup, both made by Larry Balckmon.

I currently have 5,000 bullets in stock. If you'd like to buy my bullets instead of sending your own add $75.00 per thousand to the swaging prices below.

Swaging Pricing (shipping extra)
100 - $10
500 - $25
1000 - $45
2000 -$85

I can fit 500 in a flat rate box for $7.20.
I can fit probably 3,000 in a medium box for $13.65.

Before and after pictures are below.

These are Zanes bumped up SPEER plinkers at 50 yards shot with a Benelli mp 95E in a ransom rest that kept moving around.  I had to re-aim each shot the best I could with the red dot.  The group measures 1 5/8 inches.  I think that they would have done better if the ransom rest was stable.  This was fired today when we finally had decent mid 40s weather in upstate NY.

Greetings davidbullseye,

What brass and powder charge?

I only see five shots. Usually ten shot groups are the norm.

Cheers,

Dave

Hi Dave, 

Only had time to reload 10 of these bullets and the other five I shot at 25 yards with a tighter group, but I did not think anyone was interested in 25 yard result.  I posted the picture after my email conversation with Zane.    

Brass assorted but most likely GFL from once fired Fiocchi factory with 1.35 grains of 231.  

Will reload more today, but it may be awhile before winter allows 50 yard testing.  

When I get the Ransom rest totally secured (winter permitting) I will do more testing.  In the meantime, I will use these for our 50 foot indoor league centerfire.

Greetings,

'1.35 grains of 231'!!! That's close to 1.1 grains of Bullseye.

I am impressed that the group was that good.

Very curious to learn what velocity they are traveling at.

Thanks for posting your target image.

Cheers,

Dave

Sorry to say that I do not have a chronograph nor do I know anyone who does.  I am using a dillon 550B with Uniquetek's Arredondo powder bar.  I check frequently with a beam scale, the loads may vary between 1.35 and 1.4, but usually are pretty close to 1.35.  

A person on my bullseye team uses either .7 or .9 grains of VV 310 with the 98 grain Lapua. He hand measures every powder charge.  He is getting good accuracy out to 25 yards.  They are terrific at 50 feet.  Recoil is similar to a .22.  When the .45 acps are going off around him, his sounds like a pop gun.

Also, perhaps I just got lucky since the rest was moving and I was re-aiming!

I typically load 1.35 N310 for target and SL. I have generally thought that was pretty light. I think when I went lighter I seemed to more issues with powder consistency. I was using the same load with WST.   I definitely understand (have experienced) the issues with the RR. They are way more “art” than I realized. Definitely post when you get a chance to test some more, particularly 10+ round groups.
