    I did back the crimp all the way out in the lee FCD and ran a loaded round up and through. It squeezed it to .423” on the outside and my .404” boolit to .400”. That’s what I originally posted. Maybe...

    I’ll have to order another die if that’s the case because I wanna keep lee FCD for bulge busting… but a good tip thanks. If I don’t get any leading with the ones I just loaded up that squeezed down...

  5. How big of a Flare should bell the case mouth out...

    How big of a Flare should bell the case mouth out to? Obviously a larger bell doesn’t size my boolits down as much…or at all vs a mild flare. Never ran into this issue before. Maybe because most if...

    I just got done pulling, re sizing, and reloading the batch. I measured the left over brass I had loaded with from the first batch. The outside neck flare was only .423". I seated a .404 boolit...
  7. I assume the lee factory crimp die is not to be used with oversized cast boolits?

    I loaded up some oversized Cast 10 mm sized at .404 the other day. I barely flared the casesÖmaybe I needed to flare them more? Anyways I seated my bullets and someone dropped right into my Glock 20...

    I pulled one each color since one was in brass and the other in a nickel plated case. Both down sized to .400". I would assume it was from running them through the lee crimp die. I'll have to pull...

    I loaded up a dozen of 16:1, 11 BH and some 12.5BH in 50/50 COWW alloy today. I had a little leading with both alloys sized at .402”. I powder coated both boolits again and didn’t size. They measured...
