Re: 300blackout problem bullet wont chamber properly

How new is the rifle? I had a similar issue after a new build. What I discovered what the everything was tight because it was new and to correct the problem I dipped the bolt carrier in Mobil 1, assembled it, then cycled the action manually about 200 times....It is now a very accurate, reliable shoo...

Re: Glad I purchased the Sheridan Gauge

I bought one with the cutout option and have absolutely no regret whatsoever. It's a high quality precision gauge that can be relied on to insure a rounds dimensional accuracy....

Re: Powder Shelf Life

I've reloaded with powder I've had on hand for about 25 years. It's been kept inside, dry, and at normal household temps and performs the way it did when purchased new. Additionally, I fired some .30-06 military ammo dated 42 and not one issue....

Thanks You All
WOW! .050 is a lot of material to remove from the face of any reloading die and suggests that Lee's quality control is out of control.

Re: resizing die trashing brass

I was looking closely at your expander button and the finish appears to be very rough, much more so than the button in my Redding dies. This could be the cause of the scrapping and flake you're seeing. Try polishing it with a fine compound available in most hardware stores or Lowe's and see if it im...
