Re: Barnes?

Yes, you can order them directly from Barnes or anyone else.....IF they have them in stock, which no one has for a very long time.

Re: Please Help Me With a Resizing or Bullet Seating Problem

OK, so tonight I tried making some adjustments. One note is that the bullet I loaded tonight is different than what I experienced before.....I know...I know...that makes it apples to oranges. Previously I was loading Sierra 125gr OTM and tonight I loaded Sierra 220gr SMK. At first I tried backing ou...

You also said that after seating/crimp you then crimp again with a Lee die, Have you ever gauged between these steps? maybe the problem is where you think.

Re: Please Help Me With a Resizing or Bullet Seating Problem

If it only does it occasionally it will be difficult. Clean the gauge and rounds well that won't gauge. Use a sharpie to blacken the rounds and check them again, it should clean the brass where it hits the gauge. You also did not say if you are de-burring the inside of the case mouth or not, the sl...
