    The poster "motor" has a scan of the Lee internal engineering sketch. The Lee drawing has significant errors on it compared to the CIP standards drawing. You can find his posts at the reloading forum at Gunboards.com. You can find the CIP DRAWINGS at the CIP homologation topic on the web.
    I went back and looked, and it was his posts that made me ask if it was still or always a problem. Lee doesn't seem to interested in fixing them either. I have a Lee .303 Brit collet neck die that will work for neck sizing. Probably better for cast anyway since it will leave the neck a bit larger. Maybe I will lap it out, if I get bored enough over the winter.

    There's no need to size new brass. I just inspect them all, inside/outside chamfer the necks, and prime & load. After firing decide which die works best for you. A 7.5x55 Swiss die might make a good neck sizing die. I have a set(Lee) and you are welcome to them if you decide to try it.
    Best, Thomas.

    If you have the patience an automatic search can be set up on ebay for 7.5 Mas dies. About 2 or 3 times a year a set will show up for about $25.

    [QUOTE=mtnman31;4221524]That's a bit of an exaggeration, but it is one heavy pull and not conducive to accuracy, at all. It is definitely the worst rifle trigger I have.[/QUOTE]

    You obviously have never fired a Steyr M95 straight pull!

    I picked up a set of RCBS and Lee. We'll see if they can make my MAS 49/56 shoot as wel as my MAS 36. The 49/45 is pristine while the 36 could be used as an oar.

    I was scolding my 5-year old for her and her friends making a giant mess in her room. She said they all did it. So I asked her: If all her friends jumped off a cliff, would she do it too? She said, "Oh no daddy! I would go to the bottom and try to catch them! They're my friends." Man, either I have a great kid or she has a stupid father.
