    I have the same observation. I also find that it will stick in reloading dies far more often, so I will often leave it at the bottom of the "Stash" and only reload it when all the Brass cases are loaded and on the shelf. Just last week reloading...

    I don't text because I don't want to and on my flip phone it looks like it would be a real pita. I rarely email unless in response to an email. The Phone works just fine and if who ever is calling or I can't leave a message then it wasn't important.

    Hornady Unique case lube works great is cheap and a can will last a very long time. Imperial die wax is almost as good is cheap and also a can will last a long time.

    Cast some with the Mold you have then go looking for someone who will trade your cast hollow base wadcutters for their 6.5mm boolits. If you get a variety of 6.5 boolits; then you can determine what mold to buy (or order one and wait till it becomes...

    I shoot the NOE 37gr cast in my 223 and it shoots very well without a lot of blast or recoil. It goes about 11/2 " at 100. I would just use your 223 barrel unless you need more knockdown.

    The "Energy" in a single primer is very low. You have removed the primary "Energy" source - being the powder. You have drilled an 80% or larger hole in the Bullet which will allow gas to exit the top of the die. Put on a set of Safety glasses, Put...

    At this point I think the safest way to continue would be to slowly hack saw the base of the case off making sure you go slow so it does not get hot. Primers don't always die like you might think. Clean out the case. Put a bit of soldering paste in...

    The chamber necks are quite loose as well. I use 8x57 brass necked to 7mm which gives a little tighter fit in the neck and I size to .288. Still isn't a target rifle but at least it stays on the target.
