    M1fuzz "Anyone have luck w/ the 314299?" Yes, that is an excellent cast bullet in the 7.65 Argentine as is the Lee C312-185-!R and several other .31 cal cast bullets. Also, in reading about “The load” it seems that this is not particularly...

    I thought the objective was to seat the GC? Your seating /sizing together if you're bending the bullets. Use a push throught for as cast diameter of not more than .0005 to .001 sizing.
