More adventures in reloading

June 21, 2009

Went to the gun show yesterday and found a die set from RCBS that’s supposed to work with my press, so I’ve got that going for me now.  My Hornady die set was failing me (resulting in the die being caught in the shell).  So the scheme I’m going to try now is:

1) clean the shells completely before even attempting to resize & decap, which sounds wrong – wouldn’t one want to decap first to make sure the primer pocket was clean as well?

2) Then attempt to decap & resize, as well as remove the military crimp with the stuff I got the other day.  The RCBS instruction pamphlet also says NOT to lube the shoulder of the case. Okey-dokey…
