  1. Sorry... I process my own. I figured I'd Google and saw suggestions. My bad.
  2. Google and suggestions will come up
  3. You could try polishing I side of the die using a Dremel
  4. I first started with the Hornady lock n load single stage. Then got the bug bad.... bought a Dillon 550B.
  5. I've got the Lyman case trimmer, spend extra and buy the WFT from Little Crow Gunworks. Also an annealer comes in handy. I'd buy the 55gr soft point from Sage's Reloading. They were around $88 per 1k.
  6. If you can find the Hornady 50gr Zmax, they work very well. It's a Vmax but with a green tip.
  7. Check out Sages Reloading out of WA state. He had 55gr soft tips shipped for $88.
  8. Thanks.... I read an article that Mike Dillon tried either way. He did the single stage, 100 rounds, then loaded another 100 rounds on a 550B. The difference was negligible at best unless your bench rest shoot. I'll just go back to using my 550B and just watch the OAL, etc....
  9. Maybe I'll go back to FL decap/resize on my 550. Then just keep an eye on OAL of the brass.
  10. Bolt rifle. Just trying to shorten the reloading work.
  11. I agree. I only bump back 0.002-0.003" of an inch too. I use to FL resize/deprime on my 550B but thought I'd better results on my single stage. I rarely need to trim the brass.
  12. I've been using the Dillon FL die on a single stage to deprime/size my brass. I was thinking of removing the decap pin assembly and buying the Lee neck collet die to use on my 550B. This would resize the neck only plus decap. Then I could load.
  13. Case trimmer is nice, I use the lyman ezee trimmer. Brass prep tools, the lyman prep center works well. Headspace gages are nice. Some brass lube, Brass Juice works well and vet owned. I've always been fond of Varget or imr8202xbr for powder.
  14. I was looking at the KGmade Rogue 30 but I'll look again at the Thunderbeast 9. The can will be used on a 223 and 308 heavy barrel bolt action rifles.
  15. How's the recoil and sound reduction? I'd like the maximum amount of reduction available. And yes I know brakes work best but they are too LOUD. I have a Ratworx big Chubby on my 308. Works well but it's loud and the concussion.
  16. I like the Lyman Eze trimmer
  17. Thanks.... gonna buy the KGmade Rogue 30
  18. How about AMTAC? They make an over-the-barrel type.
  19. What's everyone using? I'm planning on using 1 on a heavy barrel 223 and 308. Does anyone ha e experience with Q, AMTAC, Dead Air, OSS, Stingerworx..etc..... Any suggestions that would provide the best recoil and sound reduction? TIA
  20. Maybe try spraying case lube into the case necks. Sounds like something is sticking causing the case to stretch a bit.
  21. Small base die? Check how much you're bumping the shoulders back. I only bump a few thousandths in my bolt action. You'll wanna do more for semi-auto.
  22. I use the lyman prep center and ezee trimmer for my rifle brass. Look into brass juice for case lube. Also annealing after every firing helps with case life. I also only bump back the shoulder 0.002-0.003" for a bolt action.
