Re: How do I avoid leading my barrel?

You can find fishing weights that are about the right size and they are soft lead. That makes it easier to drive through the barrel.

I've heard of that odd leading issue and I thought it was related to the barrel. Mine does not do it. On the off chance who made that barrel?

I use NOE's version of the M die and all you have to do is let the second step enter the case mouth just a bit. Unless you are seating cast bullets you really don't need the M die.

You don't say what headstamp the brass is. There is good and bad brass for conversion.
