The topic of ammo reloading is always present in the civilian shooting community. Gun geeks and sports shooters reload their ammo to get the most accurate rounds, while frequent plinkers want to cut ammo spends. During the U.S. ammo shortage, more gun owners began thinking about reloading their ammo to save time they would spend on looking for factory rounds and shells and save money because when there’s a deficiency, things get pretty costly.
The US is full of companies that deliver quality, high-accuracy reloading equipment, tools, and supplies, but we here want to tell you about Redding. The company has been in the business since 1946, and the list of ammo reloading supplies it manufactures for fellow reloaders contains hundreds of items like dies, presses, powder measures, shell holders, and so on.
Redding Reloading Equipment & Tools
Reloading of rifle and pistol ammo begins with case preparation. The brass of a spent round is larger and dirty. After you’ve cleaned the brass, you need to lube it to prevent it from getting stuck in the sizing die. To do that, you may use the Redding Case Lube kit.
The next stages are resizing the case mouth and case trimming, and Redding sizing dies and trimming lathes do a pretty good job at that.
Then you need to insert the primer. Since military rounds like 5.56 NATO and 7.62x51 NATO have their primer pockets crimped, you need to use the Redding Primer Pocket Uniformer for decrimping.
Once the brass is fully prepared for reloading, use the precision Redding Powder Measure to pour the necessary amount of propellant into the case.
Bullet insertion goes next. Before pressing the bullet into the case, you may need to run the brass through a Redding Seating Die.
Redding Reloading Presses & Dies
At Gritr Sports, you’ll find various Redding Presses, including the Redding Single Stage Press and the Redding Turret Press. Both these presses use the proprietary Spent Primer Collection System. The T7 Turret Press can hold up to seven dies.
Gritr Sports also carries numerous Redding Reloading Dies, such as sizing, crimping, case forming, trim, decapping, seating dies, as well as rifle and handgun die kits (including 9mm reloading supplies).
