    Need to use sizing die?

    On my 550, I size and deprime, then prep my brass. If the brass is ready to go, no need to resize. I run the 550 without the sizing die.

    I'm the 550 fan boy. If your going to ever load more than one caliber you want a 550. Not sure if the sdb can even do rifle.

    9mm reload not going into battery

    Sounds like an ojive issue. Your bullet profile might not have enough room in your chamber. The punk and spin with tell you if it is the problem. I was working on a WWII Browning hi-power. When using my rounds that work great in the M&P9, the same problem accured. Some people call it a short chamber. I had to shorten the Col to get it to chamber, then I dropped the powder charge and worked it up for the new col.
