    A long time ago, I went on a fishing trip to Canada. Bald Eagles all over the place. When it was slow, we'd feed them from the boat. Wave a bait fish in the air, to get their attention. They would fly towards you, when they were close enough,...

    I was having problems with extraction. Sometimes wouldn't hook the rim. It's fine now. Didn't full length size, just kind of neck size. When I did try to full size, there was a bulge where the boolet was. The Lee die sized the neck to much...

    The Largo is an odd ball. 9mm Steyr too. So far it's been an interesting journey. Just like the Chassepot and Vetterli.

    I have the startline brass. It was to short. Got some 9mm mag from a member here. Fitted to the chamber and it works great. I tried full length sizing with my Lee 9mm die, but it sizes the neck down a little to much.

    Almost the same case, but loaded way different. Largo=23.11mm length. 9x23=22.86mm The Largo is a weaker round. Largo= 127 gr (8 g)......1,167 ft/s......384 ft⋅lbf 9x23= 124 gr (8 g) .....1,460 ft/s......587 ft⋅lbf It's what I've found anyway.

    What die could I use to full length size a 9mm Largo case????? A few cases need to be full sized. They stick in the chamber. For partial sizing, I use a Lee 9mm Luger die. It's to short for the Largo. I was thinking, maybe, 357mag??????
