    Well that sucks, spend all that money and still have issues, I just got off the phone with Troy at Marbles, he said I needed to get the angle of the tang since they do not list these Swede rollers as part of their offering listed manufactures that...

    I think I'm starting to lean to starboard on the Marbles solution, costly, but simple and effective. Thanks all.

    Question Boz, In reading their description on the sight, it says that the 3" is too short for the Remington roller. I have a Swede Carl Gustav in the 8x58Rd, and I have a Remington and a Husquvarna in the 12.7x44R, so the 3" will work on the...

    I think both Lyman and RCBS use 9/16 - 18 thread Buffalo arms offers just the guts for the expander body at any size you want. I would think if your bullet is 0.430" one to two thousands under is more then enough. Try a two diameter expander of...

    You have plenty of powder. More could work too. But, what you are describing sounds a lot more like yaw. In simple terms, somehow you are not getting the bullet a good start and the nose is circling the base as it go down range. There could be...

    I agree, in the picture the hammer looks like 1/2 the head gear from a Texas longhorn. Maybe it is the picture angle.
