    Already doing that, as of now I am actually seating with a 500s&w die then crimp with the 480 die. But still probably a 1-2 thousands fat, ive got it down to chambering in 3 of the 6 chambers. I can push them into the other 3 but hard to extract...

    Its a bulge from the bullet and not the crimp. I have a bullet sizer coming. Just have to wait as its a custom size.

    Its a collet crimp die without the sizing ring. Ordered it already and was bummed. When I looked at their custom order page they say they cant make one for 480 ruger. Too long?

    Ok so I recieved my 500 s&w seating die today I filled the seating plug with hot glue. Loaded one round with it and then crimped it with the 480 die. Was able to seat the bullet without shaving (still a little rounding of the nose) and it chambers...

    Tried running die out as far as I could and bottoming out the seating stem. It still closes the case mouth too much to seat the bullet without shaving it.

    So I ran into a ton of problems on my first attempt to load cast for my 480 ruger. Using lee dies I expand them to accept the cast bullet but the seating die irons the case bell back out as soon as the case enters the die so it shaves the bullet as...
