Re: New Brass and F/L sizing
Just eyeballing it it doesnt seem off center in such an extreme way. I gave it a really good shot of lube and rubbed the excess away with my fingers. At first it didnt make much of a difference but after about 25 cases it is getting a bit better, when i first removed the decapper the ball had a fairly sharp feeling ridge at the top of it but it doesnt feel so pronounced now, I might try polishing just the sharp ridge with a touch of jewlers rouge that i have laying around that i use to sharpen knives with. If you notice in the picture of the ball you can pretty much see where that sharp ridge was, at the very top of the brass colored ring.
Also this die is sizing the neck to .238 while the .243 varmint ballistic tips all measure .242...
I seem to remember reading in quite a few posts that .002 neck tension was about all you really wanted anyway. Getting Shavings around the edge of the neck after seating bullets into these cases. And I did avoid making a knife edge while chamfer/deburring them.
And to Jason, I have not been re-loading very long at all. Its a learning process and im just making a point to ask questions about everything im concerned with to hopefully keep from making too many mistakes.
