    At each stage shake off the excess, trying to coat too much tends to make globs instead of a coating. You can use Panko crumbs for the last stage to make a more "professional" finish. Watch the oil temp too, consistent temp around 325 makes a...

    Those slugs are killers and that's good grouping for sure. Nice job smokeeter. I move mine around 1400 fps and can shoot a 3" group at 100 off a rest. Recoil not bad at that pace.

    Recoil is reduced in 2 ways, reducing shot weight or lowering velocity. Here are some 3/4 oz loads that are minimal recoil. http://www.claybusterwads.com/index.php/product-by-gauge/by-gauge-20/33-load-data-cb1075-20

    Is it just a raised half-moon lip that the brass slides into from the crimp start station or are you talking about the plastic hull fitting into the crimp die at the top?

    It appears to me that your ball is a bit too high in the first pic to allow a proper start crimp. Maybe eliminate the 1/8" hard card or better yet trim the 1/2" wax card to make it fit and leave the hard card. One tip on the new hulls: Apply...
