    it's all random once fired brass I purchased. The odd thing that threw me off, I had literally just shot these off on saturday with the same bullet/load combo. Not a single one was too loose when seating the bullet, and I pressed them all against...

    300f for maybe 30 minutes? 380 lee 3 die kit, brass is assorted range scrap. They have been working fine with all other brass and bullet combos, I'm going to chalk this up to user error on the drying portion and go back to towel drying. I've...

    Nope, ran em back through the 380 sizing die cause I thought of that too. Maybe I just left them in the oven too long, was only a small batch so I think I'll nix that and try again with new brass.

    OK this 380 is giving me a devil of a time now. I processed and shot ~50 rounds of golddot/xtp combinations to find a good load. Got back to the house with the same brass, decapped, sent it though the SS pins, and then dried it in the oven. This...

    I don't think Buckshot is doing custom machine work any more. You might want to check with Lathesmith, he can probably help you.
