Re: .270Win Chamber too small

Thanx a lot gents!!

That's why I joined this site- lot of clever blokes around....

I previously only ajusted the die to touch the shellholder- without camming over- and MagnumManiac is absolutely right - the shellholder doesn't touch the die's base when a case is inserted.

I was hesitant to screw the sizer die futher in, cause I once got a .243Win case stuck in the die after trying this, but maybe it wasn't lubed enough...

Will definitely try this, and if no result, I might try to shave off a bit from the shell holder ( that is if I may share some of that 12 pack from whoever win the bet between larry & kraky....)


Shot!

Re: .270Win Chamber too small

I also assumed that the basic die instructions were being followed (bumping the die with the shellholder).

NOTES:
It's always best to compare your handloads to one of YOUR fireformed cases. I reload specifically for my rifle chambers, never to any industry standard dimension. Your average comparator reading (at the shoulder) of -.0025" only shows that your "average" case is short enough to fit in your chamber. Your varying dimensions show that you're resizing technique is not being done in a consistant mannor. It's normal for your resized cases to grow, but not at the shoulder.

Remember, very few reloaders consider case width, and even though shellholders are cheap - why distroy them for nothing? I've seen this done often, but it has never been the real problem.

Re: .270Win Chamber too small

Just remember that proper and consistent case lubrication is critical...

I had the same problem with my 270 WSM. I switched to different brass and it seemed to fix the problem.

Re: .270Win Chamber too small

I get the same result in both Prvi & PMP brass, so I don't think its the cases.
After reading all the replies, I rather think the problem might be in my prosess.

Boss Hoss, will you be so kind as to elaborate more on the process of lubing the cases. I use spray-on lube, but just sprayed on until I thought it was enough and pressed away..... In another thread I enquired about dents on case shoulders, and again the answer was the incorrect use of lube..
Seems than there's a lot more to lubing cases than I thought!

BTW, while trying to "bump the shoulder" on my .270Win to get them to 0.002' under "chamber size", I managed to get a case stuck in the Hornady die I was using, and all but destroyed the die when trying to remove it. - Let me guess.. the reason is the case wasn't correctly lubed...... ouch!
I got I new Lee F/L die since then..... ignorance costs money in the beautiful world of reloading
