Re: Lake City reload problem?????
Gentlemen: I just saw this thread, & thought I'd add my $0.02 worth. I recently bought some once fired Lake City 5.56 brass, myself. I thought it was properly sized. But, after getting it, it wouldn't chamber in my bolt guns. I ended up purchasing a case gauge, made by L.E. Wilson. The best part about this tool is, all you do is drop a sized case into the gauge, & if it isn't sized correctly, you can see it right away! They are not all that expensive, & I feel they are worth their weight in gold , these days, with unsized, or improperly sized brass out there in the world! If the OP had one of these gauges in the beginning, he would have realized he wasn't properly sizing his brass. Hope this helps! Idaho-5R
