Re: Redding Set Back Die Grows Case?


You're right again. I set the die down, less than a full turn, and cammed it over this time. Set the shoulder back a little too far with a slight dent in it. Backed off about 1/4 turn, bingo. I should have known this was the problem duhhhhh. Thanks for the help.

If you're real carefull, you can work the die down to produce shoulder bump about .001" at a time, it takes ten or fifteen minutes to get it perfect not going past the point you want to stop though, but at least you don't have a few with excessive headspace jumping back and forth so much. Lube, size, measure... lube, size, measure, etc, etc... [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Glad it worked out for you. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
