Re: Runout problems!
Thanks for the replies guys.
I cannot find the problem, I have checked everything.
I am going to send everything back for warranty, and see if a new set changes anything.
I was thinking that if I also get a Redding Type 'S' bushing neck die this might fix the problem also?
What about the Redding Type 'S' bushing neck die set?
This is what I have for my 300WinMag, and it's great, but is it necessary for the 222Rem?
I haven't measured the necks, but I don't think that's the cause, because runout after sizing is acceptable.
The runout is only measurable after bullet seating.
I am using the Sinclair concentricity gauge.
I am going to order the Sinclair case neck thickness kit in the next couple of days.
The neck measures .239" before a bullet is seated, and measures .242" afterwards.
The 'feel' of seating bullets is quite low, they seat smoothly without any need of excessive force. I rotate the case by quarters as I am seating, but the runout still persists.
The bullets also 'pull' very easily, not a lot of force required to extract from the case with a collet puller.
