    Chev, To chuck on the neck end of brass, I simply make a mandrel that is a slip fit into the case. Because of the typical brass case wall profile, the portion of the mandrel extending in close to the base needs to be tapered down. It can be...

    Another thanks. Frequently we find that facts are few, far between and hard to find. Guys like you do a great service with honest real data. I honestly expected your results, "negligible difference".

    OK, I am going to re-post my same response that I made to another thread. Take your time and read it. Then do it. As corny and funny as it may sound, it is probably the best solution. 9 mm can be very frustrating. Do not let that put you...
