    First 100 rounds went great. 100% reliability and zero leading. Accuracy seamed to be just fine too. The recoil impulse was perfect too, just a nice push. Thanks to everyone!

    I believe I'm ready for success! The bullets shaved a little when seating and crimping ar the same time which I've heard is very common, so I opted to save myself the frustration and break seating and crimping into its own step. The rounds passed...

    I was just messing with it and I'm still getting that streaking above the crimp groove but it's pretty uniform all the way around. Is this acceptable or is it possible to get even better?

    I'll try both these suggestions. I have a friend up the street who has some of the accurate flat top punches. Maybe I'll go borrow one of his and see if that helps.

    It looks to me like my boolits are getting pushed a little too far into the sizing die. Problem is if I push the bullet in less, the lube groove wont fill. Will this affect anything negatively?

    Got around to casting some bullets out of the lyman mold and to my surprise they drop around .454! Looks like I wont have to worry about having a small bullet. Between that and the white label bac I shouldn't have a problem with leading. Once the...
