Dummy round

This may belong in the reloading section, but I figured I would get more responses quicker.

I need to send a dummy round to Kiff for my new edge reamer. I don't have any dies yet. Can I seat a bullet in my dummy Edge case with my 338 Lapua Seating die? The die is a stock RCBS seater.

Re: Dummy round

Shouldn't be a problem, back the die off so you don't crush the shoulder.

Re: Dummy round

If that doesn't turn out let me know and I'll send you a dummy, PM me if so.
Courage is just fear that has said it's prayers.

The people trying to say the 2nd Amendment is outdated are probably the same folks that would say the same thing about the Bible.
