    Hello HangFireW8, Thank you for your response. I plan on getting a bullet sizer to bring the bullets to the proper diameter after powder coating. I want to use powder coating with no gas check since the less I have to spend on reloading ammo the...

    The neck expander makes sense. I reloaded my 223s with PC lead bullets for the first time and I was stripping off a little bit of the PC when I pressed in the bullets. I am going to put reloading on hold with cast bullets until I read through the...

    I bought my son a Marlin 30-30 for Christmas along with a Lee bullet mold and reloading dies. I plan on powder coating the 160 gr bullets. What powder should I start off with? Do I need gas checks? Do I need to crimp the case neck? Thanks!
