    neck issues on .308 loads

    Re: neck issues on .308 loads Nothing wrong with winchester brass. I prefer lapua but the win brass is fine. It would help to see a pic of the bulging neck.

    Minimum case length??

    Re: Minimum case length?? Xshot, Another good way to remedy your situation is to find out what your throat length is. Take a piece of brass and cut the neck in half (preferably with a lathe but dremel or a fine tooth hack saw will work). Save the half you cut and seat a bullet into the...

    Expander ball??? Mandrel??? Redding Dies

    Re: Expander ball??? Mandrel??? Redding Dies +1 on the help. Trust us we have all been there at one point and dont take RTH the wrong way. As reloaders we have to watch each others back and more experienced loaders typically are more than willing to lend a hand. The questions you have asked...

    Expander ball??? Mandrel??? Redding Dies

    Re: Expander ball??? Mandrel??? Redding Dies The expander ball is exactly that. When you extend the ram up into the die with your fired brass there is a ball thats located just above the decapping rod (the thing that pops your old primer out). As you size your brass and pull the sized brass...
