Re: creepy joe 2020

Well, she's made it to the top. She can get off her back now. I'm still wondering how we ended up with a pedophile with dementia who doesn'r even know where he is half the time and a VP who dropped out of the primary before the first vote was taken. It must have taken a serious team of mules to drag...

Re: Uneven crimp in primer pocket?

If you only did three, personally, I would reclaim the bullets and powder and start over.

Re: Uneven crimp in primer pocket?

The cases are not being held centered in the swage so the ram is going into the primer pocket off center. This is a common issue with .223 and .308.
Inline Fabrication makes inserts for those two calibers that will solve that problem.

Re: converting measurement

I would stick with the head stamps that are known to be good. .223 brass is plentiful and it works. I would hate to go though all of the work to convert the case then find out you have to either turn the necks or pitch them in the scrap bucket. Get a batch of once fired .223 and go from there. Lake ...

Re: 300 Blackout Brass Processing Issue

I may have found my problem. Since the last time I used these dies, I ground down the expander ball so I could use an expander mandrel and still retain the decapping function. It looks like I didn't grind it down enough and the expander ball was loose on the threads. I can't figure how that would ca...

300 Blackout Brass Processing Issue

This is strange. After sizing, chamfering , and beveling case mouths, I still have a very slight lip on the outside of the case mouth. It almost looks like it was flared. Here is my equipment and workflow. Brass is all LC, cut on a Harbor Freight chop saw Sized on a T-7 press, RCBS Small Base die Ch...

Re: Primers ?

Wow, for $200/1000 I would have to seriously consider letting some go.. LOL Hopefully, primers will hit the shelves 1st quarter, but I'm not holding my breath. With Plugs being inserted in the WH, I look for it to get worse before it gets better. I'm just glad I stocked up when I did. My memory is n...

Re: H110 and 120gr Powerbond Flamethrower

You should see what comes out of a .454 Casull with a 300 gr. bullet and 32 grains of H110. It's a lot of fun. My wife won't even go to the range when I take that one.
