    Yep, I too have read about measuring the jacket length after core seating and was going to mention it. Yes a lot by feel. The way I figure when starting anything like making bullets or reloading you should take notes and right down...

    Corbin's largest tips are Aluminum, at least the ones I received a couple years ago. I too am curious about Blaster's tips there. Shank diameter looks bigger, I like!
