    When my Lee equipment fails, I will toss it and get something else. Has not happened yet, but only loading since 1976. I do have some other brands of dies as lead bullets have some special needs. prs

    M-Tecs replied to a thread the 17 in Rimfire Area
    It's been done as early as the 60's but the real issue is fouling problems with the larger cases. The 17 Remington is a prime example. The smaller case 17 Hornet and 17 Fireball don't seem share this issue. It also depends on intended usage. Fox...

    Depends on the nose ogive of the bullet and how far out seated into the case. There are bore riding bullets that will fit into the leading bore cuts and others like the 457124 and 457125 with fat ogives that are SAMMI overall length (OAL) dependent...

    Any primer will ignite if it is struck Hard and Fast. So slow down jerking and hammering the press arm when reloading.
