    Problem gaz checks with beagled bullets (oval)

    I have a problem and wonder if anybody ever saw this before. I beagled a bullet mould, a Lee .312 160gr., to .315 using aluminum tape. I find it hard to place the gaz check square with the base of the bullet because of its oval shape. Using a Lee push through bullet sizing die doesn't do the job cause the gaz check crimps cock eyed with the base.
    I will only be using 8.5-9 gr. of Unique. Wonder if I really need a gaz check at that velocity ?

    You don't say what cartridge you are shooting, but if it is a 303 British you should be at a velocity where you'd expect the thing to shoot without the gas check. Give her a try, and if it shoots but not real well, reduce the load a bit more. I'm thinking you are right on the margin of need gas check/don't need gc.

    Sorry about that. It's for a Remington IZH (Spartan) break open in 7.62 x 39. I'll follow your advice earlmck and try it without a gaz check. Thanks.
