    Seat and crimp at the same time. Not a stranger to doing it seperatly though since i already do that on my 357.

    That one had indeed been chambered multiple times. Or at least attempted to. Im using hornady dies. The only other semi auto pistol round i have loaded to any real extent is 9mm and i get clover leafs with my cast load for it. Well my friend...

    Function was markedly better, only had one jam and one fail to eject where the case just didnt want to be let go. I will set the crimp just a hair down more and i figure that will do it. Accuracy was still less than desirable but i think that was...

    Just recrimped 74 and hand cycled them without issue, will test them in about 2 hours when i get to my range. I am sorry i caused a big fuss over such a simple oversight.

    Well this is embarrassing. The mixed headstamp thing got me thinking and I decided to retrace my steps here and started with redoing some plunk tests. While some did pass, most did not. And its not necessarily one headstamp or another that...

    Factory ammo i shot was sig, box showed velocities in the higher endbof 10mm loadings. I normally shoot 357 mag revolver with decent accuracy. Have shot a few semi autos but generally prefer revolvers. Lunch break is over. More in the morning.

    Is there really that much difference between a tc and this swc if this swc is seated deep enough? I barely even think of this mold as a swc xonsidering how 357 swc look.

    They pass the plunk test in the delta, did not test them in the m&p. I have tried seating them slightly deeper and it helped, but still happened. I have not tried seperate brass headstamps. I will try that next. I am powder coating these and...

    In using rcbs 10MM-200-SWC 518 for my 10mm delta elite and have been having some seemingly random failure to feeds. Thr nose jams on the feed ramp and sometimes the slide fails to close all the way. Happens with both mags, sometimes at the start of...

    The die marked for 357 hits the shell holder before the expander inside the die reaches the 38 special brass. This also prevents the powder drop from activating. Hope this helps. It was a rage inducing discovery and lead to my first hornady die...

    Thank you. I didnt know if the adjustment on depth was done through the cutter part of the tool or the die. Sounds like its the die so i will get both. I started out with the 357 die and was not too happy when i learned i choose the wrong die...

    Lee's 357 mag die set will not expand a 38 special case enough to seat a boolit. I cant remember for sure but i dont think it can crimp 38s either.

    I've been looking at the lee quick trim dies and tool. I have been had in the past buying lee's 357 dies because they are not "backwards compatible" for 38 special. Lee has different part numbers for the two cartridges but at the moment i am...

    It is more than adequate. Its the only caliber i hunt with. Ive got a 30-06 just have never found a reason to use it. Not like it can make the deer any more dead. Just know your load and dont change it. Cause even small changes in load can...

    Really is top notch. I bought a turret press about a month ago and it shipped with 2 large primer pick up tubes. A call to their customer service today and a small pick up tube is on its way. Heres the kicker, call lasted 4 minutes 17...
