    My own opinion is that I can’t coach them if they won’t talk to me, so there is no single issue or group of issues that I’m willing to fight so hard that they’d stop talking to me. They often ignore...

    It’s an easy caliber.
    Before buying once-fired brass check the length. Hornady uses a short version for their ftx bullets, you’ll want to avoid it early in your reloading experience.

    It they are soft enough to crush easily by hand then they have been over annealed and neck tension will be very poor.

    Apologies, I missed the cast bullet requirement.
    I’d do as @243winxb suggests.
    I’d also start at 30 or maybe 35 and work down until happy with performance or the bullet fails to exit the gun.
