  1. I see this when the brass is glocked pretty good. If the area and below the area of the marring is within spec. Run them thru a full sizing die and you should be good. Also looking at your picture, the brass still looks glocked but a pair of calibers will tell you if your Casepro dies are setup correctly. Again only measure the marring and below. From the marring to the top of the brass will be out of round.
  2.

  3. I can't believe it's been 3 years from taking this video but I hope it helps understanding why I flare the case mouth. It must be done so the bullet stays in the case when transferring stations. Also to answer your question as to how to bullet stands up. It's because the bullet plate is two to three times thicker than a pistol plate. I will upload a picture of it later today.
  4. I have only used flat bass bullets at this time on a progressive press. Same flare as with pistol cases, just not as much crimp on the rifle rounds. I run it on a 1050, so I have a seating die and crimp die. I believe you can get buy with a seating/crimp die in one station if you are not looking for match ammo. It’s just easier for me to use two stations.
  5. I'm using the 308 conversion kit for the Mr. Bulletfeeder. It works well with the Sierra TMKs. If your loading over 500 rounds at a time. It's worth the cost of the conversion.
  6. https://www.pscshootingclub.com/index.php Second Sunday of the month. Texas Southern Section will list other matches as well https://www.facebook.com/pg/TexasSouthUSPSA/about/?ref=page_internal
  7. I’m currently running the STM 40lb rotary tumbler. Love how much brass it can clean but hate the weight of it. If the motor burns out or I need more capacity. I will buy a cement mixer to replace it. The amount of area/time to dry the brass, should be a limiting factor at some point.
  8. May I ask why your case feeder looks so dirty? If I was home, I’d take a pic to compare to mine.
  9. May I ask what the brass will be used for, pistol/rifle, competition/target, etc?
  10. I have a 650 head with just a Dillon universal decapping die. All sizing is done on the Case Pro and 1050 after tumbling with the STM.
  11. +1 but I have only used it on jacketed bullets.
  12. Looks like the new case feeder is for sale now. Looking at the May Blue Press. Still don’t see anything on the CP-2000, website or paperback.
  13. It's a 1/2" wide rubber band that goes around the powder tube and drop spring. I had to do this for 30 cal rifle bullets but MBF supplied the rubber band and give a Staples replacement part number, if it brakes. I do not have the number on me at this time but if you would call MBF, they should be able to have it to you.
  14. It's pretty straight forward. I ordered dies for a .40. I had bought 9mm with the Case Pro. The .40's would oversized every time so I put some shim stock behind the back die to fix the problem. It was cheaper than sending them back to Mike for new ones. Again not much to it.
