Re: Primer pockets: How deep?
Just noticed your post on primer pocket depth.I had the same question.
Forster recommends seating the primer .004".However after I have uniformed the pockets on my Lapua brass my seated primers are running from .008"-.010".I havee been told that this is to deep,but I have not experenced any problems.
However,I now just barely uniform the pockets to just square up the outside diameter at the bottom of the pocket and just seat the primer until I feel it bottom out.I think that I was putting too much "elbo grease" into my uniforming efforts and recutting the pocket making it deeper.With my new strategy the primers are seated from .004"-.006".Can't say that there is any difference in groups,etc.,but makes me feel better!!
