    It’s not bullet problem, but more of a reloader issue. Measure, test, and repeat until you figure out the issue. ”you haven’t changed anything in years” except for the projectile, which changes everything... be patient and test things, everyone here is guessing based on experience.
  2. #1 Run a Lee Undersized sizing die #2 powder #3 Bullet feed or empty to see pow #4 Lee seat die #5 Lee factory crimp Do this and life will be good
  3. #1- your 1/4 turn past on the sizing die for Glock bulge is probably tilting the plate enough to cause irregularities on the seating and crimping side of things. #2- measurements with lead Bullets, case thickness, and final round oaw, can vary quite a bit, do they case gauge? Do they function well? #3- Dillon makes awesome stuff but I’ve never had good luck with their dies not shredding cases without enough live to cause suction issues. #4- lube is good and a dab should do you. Your pic looks like a rough carbide sizing ring to me though. id guess though, your sizing die is too deep and the difference in the length of the cases you’re sizing on one side is causing the failures on the other side of the plate at the same time.
  4. with 11 in the mag, it’s....an open gun! no worries TC, all gun pics are cool
  5. Rubbing’s racing,, get over it, Unless you’re selling it..., then tell them to get over it.... just an opinion, but there’s no reason to spend money on reworking a “scuff” unless that part is bowed, cupped, checked, warped, or split. It’s takes effort to make that happen with metal, and unless it’s cracked or worn beyond it’s life, put it in the safe and sleep well. again, just an opinion
  6. I had one on a carry gun, it was good for that purpose in my opinion but the glass is small and horribly dark in comparison to the current prevalent micros you’ll see on open guns. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. What type of brass and caliber? It’s probably either a stepped case or very unsupported chamber, or potentially out of battery ignition.
  8. Ya, I understand your logic, but the case was always undersized and wasn’t a press fit into the chamber to begin with. Your talking about the coefficient of thermal expansion which wouldn’t be applicable unless the chamber had enough pressure to expand more than the case to begin with and then constrict on the case due to differential pressures. In something like a Jacobs or Morse taper, this is an entirely different situation than a thin piece of brass in a relatively thick walled piece of steel.

  9. Not to totally contradict but just spray some gun oil, wd40, or other lubricant in it to soak outside the case and use a brush, pick, tweezers, etc to remove. the case expanded and wedged itself inside the chamber during firing but cools and shrinks after firing. It happens every time you fire a round, you’re just missing the rim and extractor now. There’s carbon that’s making it sticky
  10. Case head separation, or it’s like a squib but it’s actually a detonation, meaning it’s a super light charge that had enough free space/air in the case to detonate vs burn like a normal rounds does. If you go below the minimum charge weight it can be equally as catastrophic if an explosion as going drastically over the max charge with a fast powder. I’d rather have a squib any day of the week that a 1 grain (light charge) of titegroup go off. Think firecracker vs sparkler Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. It’s also good to carry spares of things that you’re likely to lose if disassembly in a windy, rocky, safety area when in a hurry. Pin sets, springs, etc may not be a part that breaks all the time but finding a plunger spring in a weed patch makes it worth carrying an extra whenever I’m shooting.

  12. I agree, this is more of a box of parts that wear and eventually need replacing vs an emergency repair kit but it’s a small enough box that it really doesn’t matter to me that I’m carrying the extra stuff Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. There’s no reason to unless there’s a reason to due to wear or fitting issues with the barrel, or the slide reaming being worn or oversized, or the specific comp or fitting. i had a slide that needed one due to shoulder wear/chamfer on the plug cut, it was a shorty which also changes the amount of bearing surface area and material in the tunnel. no reason to use a one unless you have an issue in my opinion
  14. And it’s all fit, or at least has been run in the gun enough to know it will run 95% ish
  15. The cups are most prone to breaking and then the extractor itself. i have this onhand and a backup gun if the frame, barrel, or slide cracks.
