Re: Powder coat vs lube

I tried PC for the first time with HF white. I was coating 230 grain Lee. Not a heavy coating but when loading bullets the die shaved a lot of lead down the side of the case. Never had that problem with 45 10 10 Alox. Your thoughts?

Re: Loading cast Lee 160 grain

I've had good luck with Lee 230 feeding, haven't check accuracy yet. Wouldn't need to shoot more than 50-75 yards

Loading cast Lee 160 grain

I'm loading Lee 160 grain bullets to 1.82 OAL. This is at the chimp line on the bullet, H110 15 grain bullet maybe just touches powder. Is that too short? I have loaded 230 grain to 2.095 OAL, they work great. I bought some Winchester 220 grain they are 2.14 OAL

Re: FTF is primed brass from American Marksman

I moved the bullet more out of the casing to 2.15 OAL that seems to have fixed the problem. 20 loaded 20 fired!
