Take a little material from the shell holder it’s much cheaper and easier to replace if something goes bad or as I’ve read in on this forum before try inserting a feeler gauge of a few thousands under the shell in the shell holderLength is a tad under spec so I didn’t trim. Figured it grow a bit after firing. Am going to take a bit off die.
The Reading competition shell holders actually allow for less sizing and would make the cartridge longerGet Redding Competition Shellholder Set #1 that will have shellholders that may be just the right reduction to allow the die to work right. Not too mention they will provide perfect shoulder set back for you.
It’s no biggie I’ve mentioned it several times over the past couple years to several people I bought a set that’s the only reason I knowBill Cauley: OOPS! Should have put down that Jim Beam before I responded! I was thinking the shellholder was going the other way! OMG!
yep I tried a feeler gauge but didn’t have enough play to shoulder bump. I trimmed the die back a bit and got it to where I can set the shoulder back a tad. But still tight enough that it’ll dent the shoulder taper with too much spray resizing lube. Purely non scientific but I never claimed to be too scientific!!Take a little material from the shell holder it’s much cheaper and easier to replace if something goes bad or as I’ve read in on this forum before try inserting a feeler gauge of a few thousands under the shell in the shell holder
atta boy. Too many people overthink things. If it is chambering tight it is obvious the die is not sizing it enough. Most likely minimum chamber and maximum die. In manufacturing they call it tolerance stacking. So make the die a bit shorter. Easy peasy.Different shell holder. I trimmed the die mouth back and works great.
What are your shoulder measurements for fired and sized cases?Remington 7 predator 22-250.
seems like the chamber is a tad tight. Runs Remington factory stuff good. Resized cases fit tight and leaving a ring on shoulder. Any ideas? The pics are Hornady new brass thru fl RCBS die. I do have a 22-250 reamer and t-handle if a slight touch up would do.
