    Here is a pic of my process for reducing 223rem down to 30 cal. The process is the same with the 9mm case. The process is a little slow and labor intensive but the results are perfect and repeatable. I don't do more then about .025 in reduction at a...

    BT Sniper replied to a thread lubing cases in Swaging
    If one uses lanolin for deriming it is best to be sure it is all removed from the brass before tumbling in media. I used to use mineral spirits but no longer enjoy the smell. I have heard others here report that woolite fabric cleaner works well to...

    BT Sniper replied to a thread lubing cases in Swaging
    Before I had a tumbler I would coat the inside of a Ziploc bag with lube then add clean brass and kneed with hands to distribute lube. This worked well too. Not really any wrong way to apply lube, just make sure you use enough and that it is all...

    BT Sniper replied to a thread lubing cases in Swaging
    Annealing after deriming. Use whatever lube you wish for deriming. Only use quality swage lube for core seat and point form swaging. I now like to use RCBS case lube II for deriming only because it is so easy to rinse clean with only water....

    BT Sniper replied to a thread My Work Order List in BT Sniper

    BT Sniper replied to a thread VLD Point Forming Die in Swaging
    Sounds like you are doing everything correct. I would have to suspect the die then..... try cleaning bullet cavity with clean cotton Q-tip? Any noticeable scratches? or imperfections in the surface finish?

    BT Sniper replied to a thread VLD Point Forming Die in Swaging
    What caliber? I haven't found VLD dies to be any more trouble then any other point form die in my experience. Actually found a longer nose with less barring surface to the bullet should eject easier, but........ could be other reasons or issues...
