Re: Basic reload question

I have the RCBS Master reloading kit and I love it. I have since added a faster primer seating tool, A powder trickler, The case vibratory cleaner from Midway and a set of steel dial calipers and dies for all the calibers I own of course. The only thing I want to get now is some better sizing dies for my .308 but this set up as mentioned above get it done in fine fashion for the vast majority of my shooting. I have loaded several thousand .223s with this single stage press. It takes some time but the results are good and economical.

. Chamfering is cleaning the burrs left on the outside of the case neck after trimming and deburring is the opposite being on the inside of the case neck.

I feel like i am asking a number of dumb questions but thanks for putting up with it. Could you explain more into this? What do burrs look like etc.

Re: Basic reload question

They are visible once trimmed and very sharp. I am unsure how to explain the way they look. If I was at home I would post a pic showing the difference but I'm not. The tool is double ended meaning one end does the inside and one end does the outside. Maybe 4ked can post a pic if he aint to busy or I will do it when I get home in about 5 hours. A few pictures would really make it easier to understand. Help 4kie!

Re: Basic reload question

Can't post a picture sorry.

Trimming shortens the length of a brass case. Usually a few thousandths of an inch is all.

Chamfering (or beveling) puts an itty bitty bevel on the inside and outside rim of the case mouth. If you dont chamfer you will have teency weency sharp edges (burrs)that will cause many unwanted results.

Re: Basic reload question

One tool you must have thats not included is a caliper. Go with a good quality digital since they are so easy to read.

Re: Basic reload question

Sounds like a decent explanation. Better than I could come up with at the time.
