Reinventing the steel

Good album; and also a way to make something old new again. I didn't realize that steel cases could be reloaded, but Mike at Mike's Spot talks you through all the important stuff that you need to know to load steel.

Of course, my imagination is asking the question of whether steel cases will allow more powder than brass cases, and also whether steel will handle higher pressures. I sometimes like to push the envelope during load development, and if I can jam another grain or two of powder in the case or load up another 3k psi above SAAMI specs, then I'm all about it.

Life is too short to be getting steel cases stuck in your chamber... which has happened to me and I've seen happen to others.
