    I have the same issue with a couple pistols. Maybe 3-4 out of 100 are too bulged to chamber. Solution was to run them PARTIALLY into the sizing die. Just enough to get them to plunk. This'll take the bulge out without ruining tension. If you...

    I wouldn't have sized them. Just flared and loaded again. But, since you did lube and size, could you just wipe them off with a rag wetted in alcohol? Think that'd be my next move. Sent from my XT1710-02 using Tapatalk

    I have no way to slug a .223 either. I arrived at .2265 by tinkering with all other variables until I found my most accurate load. Which would have been good for rabbits, but not squirrel heads. At that point I started sanding out my sizer .0005...

    I can't tell you why. I hope someone smarter comes along and explains. But I can testify that it is so. I have to size mine to .2265 before they're worth shooting through my rifle. Meanwhile, .224 jacketed have the same accuracy. .224 cast will...

    Forgot OP mentioned 9mm. (Was being pestered while posting.) I load 9mm with same alloy, treated at 425. Any softer and the brass swages down the bullet. 150 grains over 2.8 of either titegroup or promo. Promo is right at max. My Ruger likes...

    Depends on what you're trying to make it do. Gas check or no? Powder coat or no? Barrel twist? Bullet weight? I mix coww and range scrap 50/50 and add 1% tin. Powder coat. 62 grain. Plain base, no gas check. Heat treated at 450 (very...

    Agreed. I use bacon grease to make popcorn in the cast iron skillet. It's awesome. Pretty much anything fried gets bacon flavor. Burgers, potatoes, carrots... There's no limit to the power of bacon. Sent from my XT1710-02 using Tapatalk
