New guy here, looks like a good place to hang out!
I am relatively new to reloading and tried reloading 38spl today using Dardas cast bullets, 158gr. LSWC. I noticed they seated with a little more resistance than the XTP/HP type bullet and left a very slight ring of shaving mixed with lube at the crimping cannelure around some of the cartridges. I tried expanding some of them a little more by running them thru the expander die again but that made very little difference.
Will this affect accuracy? The head of the bullet is a flat top not HP and it is intact not marked up at all. Should I expand the case mouth even more in the future? I guess about 1/3 of the cartridges showed this shaving. Some of the cases took the bullet fine and I thought the slight variation in case mouth size and bullet base size might account for that?
Thanks for any help,
