Re: Presses

That's a real good idea regarding pistols first. I started with 38 specials on a Redding T-7 and I get a super accurate cartridge. It has been a good way to break me into metallic reloading.

Re: Presses

I have been trying different factory ammo.
Hsm makes the burger 168vld and they fly straight and true the problem is that
the fired casing will not eject from the bolt without some serious fighting. Federal power shok has crappy groups but the rounds eject fine. The rifle absolutely hates anything by Winchester.

The local reloaders suggested 67 grains of the h1000 using the 168 vld. they also said Winchester cases and a cci primer.

If you have access to a good set of calipers measure you OAL of both rounds and write it down. Sounds like a pressure or head spacing issue to me.

Re: Presses

it is a head space issue. The round that gets jammed is 3.350 coal
Hodgen recommends 3.270 and Berger recommends 3.290

maybe the round is getting jammed into the lands?

Good possibility of that or the case itself is swelling
