+1-UPS will ship ammo. USPO will not.

Re: Bullet Seating?

BAH I ordered another 2 boxes of federal from Midway (This time triple shok premiums) and had the same problem as before! I think it must be a batch that Midway has, a call to federal is in order to talk about this...The store bought stuff works just fine. Also havent heard anything back from federal after they said they would take a look and refund me.

Re: Bullet Seating?

Ok so comparing these Premium Federals to my cheapy winchester I think I have the problem. The neck where it meets the shoulder isnt a crisp line its more rounded. I took one of the rounds just as a test and cleaned up with a pair of pliers just flattening the case against the bullet in the neck and that eased up a lot of the pressure. I cant believe the let ones that look that bad out of the factory.

Re: Bullet Seating?

Yea they actually said it was within their specs. All be it on the high end. Sent me a refund of 95 dollars for the 3 boxes. I actually measured the length of the shoulder from the widest part of the case to the neck and the ones that were tight were noticeably larger in the calipers.
