Re: Total confusion and question...

Probably what you're thinkin. Take a neck sized case and split the neck vertically from the mouth to the shoulder body junction with a dremmel and a cutoff wheel or hack saw then deburr. The dremmel works best. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] If you seat the bullet a little long and close the bolt on it all the way, it gives perfect tension on the bullet and takes two or three times to verify the reading is consistant to the thou. Takes about a minute. I take a measurement off the ogive and use the exact same bullet with the measurement wrote on it for keeping track of any throat errosion. I log the tip and ogive measurements in a notebook as well as on the dummy round I make up with that bullet for setting up the seating die later on.
