Re: Feeding problems Dillon case feeder.

I went to the large pistol plate with a drop-in spacer and it works like a champ now.

Feeding problems Dillon case feeder.

I have an older Dillon collator. The directions say to use the small pistol plate with the two washers under it. I have it set up that way. The problem is it's not picking up cases. It can take more than 3 minutes to fill the tube. I tried the small rifle plate but it was feeding brass in upside dow...

Re: Sub sonic bullet molds

I have the Lee mold. The bullets drop undersized. I used powder coat on them and barely had any resistance to a .310 sizing bushing from NOE.

I also picked up the MP 235 gr and the MP 311-410 clone.

Re: Perfect 300 BO Cast Boolit

The MP 311-140 is an awesome boolit. It casts a 140 gr solid and a 123 gr deep hollow point.

Re: Crimped primer pockets...

I'm sure they are crimped. You can see the crimp ring and a primer won't go into the pocket.

Crimped primer pockets...

I picked up 1500 pieces of once fired mixed 300 BLK brass. I found out that the Hornady, Federal, and CBC all have crimped primer pockets. That makes using the Dillon 650 to load a real pain. Now I have to deprime and swage the brass. I'm not going to sort it, just mass process it. I was really hopi...

Re: PSA FEDARM BULK AMMO DANGEROUS

I only put about maybe 10 rounds though my gun before I realized there were primer blowouts. The very next round caused the jam. I quit using them. I read the warnings but even still I wouldn’t expect them to be this bad. One would expect they are just covering their butt legally if something happe...
