Re: Head space issues!!!

buy 2 more die sets and mark and use them for each specific gun. cheapest and easiest way to do it and be certain it is right.

Re: Head space issues!!!

BignGreen's example/results are normal.
You are trying to use YOUR brass(not SAAMI) in multiple guns.
Contrary to lore, FL sizing may not take fired brass to SAAMI unless it is customized to account for the 'new cartridge' it becomes on fire-forming.

Don't be cheap. By new brass, and atleast body dies for each chamber you're reloading for.

Re: Head space issues!!!

New dyes and 2 new bags of brass is looking like the best solution. I figured this was gonna be the case. thanks
