    Maybe you have some military or crimped brass. Primers are so soft that they usually will crush in if the pocket is even close to size. Sounds like the brass is the issue.

    I've never seen any fluctuations, especially here in the forums. I've bought some and sold some. They tend to hold their value fairly well as long as they are in good condition. I suppose prices might go up a little in the winter as that's when...

    I wish I knew and could tell. It's just something I tried while I was trying to figure it out. I don't think it's warping because I can still get the mold too hot from casting too fast, which is evident by smearing on the sprue plate, unclean cuts,...

    If you can hammer the bullet into a cube and as flat as a penny, then you probably have it cured properly. If you've over cured / over heated, then you'll get flaking when you hammer test. Not sure you can under cure. I've never done it...so going...
