Re: NEED HELP - Bullet deformation from neck size

I think Mike is saying the sizing die neck area may be undersize. Call Redding, they will tell you to send it in together with a case and bullet.

You should do this.
It's part of basic reloading to observe the fit of your ammo before and after firing..

Measure before & after chambering and tell us what's happening

Re: NEED HELP - Bullet deformation from neck size

kinetic puller is likely causing deformation.

Can you explain to us "visual learners" how that could happen?

Their selling point (supposedly) over collet style pullers is that they DO NOT deform or damage bullets. I am failing to visualize how a kinetic puller would/could do this to a bullet?

My F/L die and neck sizing die both size them to .309 which is where it should be.

A kinetic pulller can only casue damage to the tip of the bullet and that happens rairly. I believe you are thinking of a collet puller.

Re: NEED HELP - Bullet deformation from neck size

I actually meant my reply as a question. Forgot the question mark. Sorrry! Can you actually see the bulge or measure it in a loaded round? Should look just like the spare tire I carry above my jeans!
