    You said the seater has a crimp ring and that you had the die backed off to only seat the bullet and not crimp. The only thing i can think of is the the brass doesnt have the case and neck support during the seating proccess and that is why your...

    Its a tough crowd, but I have 3, would not trade any of them. Son in law is currently using the .40sw for home defense. While I like both the 9mm and the .40 the .45acp really made me fall in love with it. And easily the most accurate of my 3. ...

    Measure your chambers seating depth and check your throat diameter. Case gauges only check head space of the cartridge. It wont detect issues with seating depthe and or bullet size. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Try some water dropped bullets and some aircool and heat treated to see what is more accurate. You never know your gun might like the softer stuff. Good lubes so you wont lead. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Have you measures the seating depth yet? What does the extracted round look like? Any scraping by the throat? I reload cast for 5 different 9mm with the Lee 125g rn. You need to measure the seating depth off all the guns and the go with shortest...

    Every 500 S&W Magnum owner should have this bullet mold. Whether you powder coat them, or cast and lube as normal, it is certainly a WOW boolit. Thanks for participating.

    The only one who knows for sure is Miha. He hasn't given the HONCHOS a production schedule. I would bet that this one will some time after the first of the year. We need more orders to really get Miha's attention on it.

    As long as it fit check fits the shank and has enough thinknes to crimp on snug then i dont see why not. I can use .270 cal check on 6.5mm but not the other way. They both have the same size check shank diameter. But the cup thickness is different....

    If you have the fit right then it might surprise you how soft you can go. Try a half Range scraps and half wheel weight. You can water drop from the mold if you wanted harder. I like a BHN of 10 to 12 in rifles and around 8 to 10 BHN for pistols. ...

    Its feeding and cycling just fine now. Thanks guys. I tried going up a grain on the load and it made the groups worse. I am happy with 18g loads might try .5g higher and see if that helps. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
