    LC brass tends to run on the hard side. That is a good thing. My guess is that you purchased it once fired. A lot of the once fired LC is SAW machine gun brass. The SAW's have large chambers. I have loaded a lot of LC fired out of SAW's without...

    I know nothing about a Holyday (!) press but if it is Al (corroded mabe?) you are good. If CI, it will be more difficult. If steel, you may need a real tap.
