    Want to duplicated FGMM 175 SMK's

    I'm running 8208 behind 175 smk's with very good accuracy with the short ranges that I have access to. With LC brass and COAL 2.810 AND a 20" barrel, I'm pushin just shy of 2400 fps. ES's have been upper 30's SD's consistently around 15-16. Provided I dont try an rush my shots, 1/2 MOA...

    Feedback primer differences...

    with the small rifle primers its a matter of cup thickness and hardness. When playin around with small caliber wildcats, sudden pressure spikes can eat your ass. In that respect, I've grown very fond of cci 450's Hutch

    Feedback primer differences...

    My personal experiences with large rifle primers has led me to believe that the only real difference is your confidence in your loads, ymmv. Now with small rifle primers,yes they make a big difference. But as with any component change, back your loads off and work back up. Hutch

    first time issue

    OK. Here's what I've done. With a different shellholder (the only one I have left now) I've taken my full length die to the grinder. Removed approximently .020 so i set up my die obviously to far from my shell holder at the top of the stroke. I take a new piece of brass, run it into the die then...

    first time issue

    Well, I just about fucked up. I took my shell holder to the grinder an took a little off the top. Went back an proceeded to size a case, as I started the up stroke to remove the case the shell holder gave up ghost......Hmmmmmmm, maybe I took a little too much off, lol. Anyhow, when scroungin...

    Fish, I'm inclined to think you hit the nail on the head..... One more reason to buy a lathe ;) Hard numbers; all the cases are within spec before and after as far as OAL. I can take a case put it in the chamber, it falls in then when I attempt to close the bolt it gets real tight. Hutch

    the shell holder is bumping the bottom of the die As long as the shell holder is square, it dont matter the brand. And yes, not all are equal Hutch

    first time issue

    This is the first time I've had an issue with a die not sizing properly. I've used several brands. I can take a fired case and hold it next to a sized case an SEE the difference in shoulder location... As far as chamber issue's, I'm sure it's possible. Carbon build up?? nope. its only had 20...
