  1. I process all my brass on a Hornady LNL, but then I wet tumble with pins so when I check my brass for pins after tumbling I toss them in the gauge since I’m handling them anyways. I know I don’t need to, but I have the time to do it so it doesn’t bother me. I measure my bullets when I check the crimp, and the bullet is not getting swaged. I have resize die set to have a slight cam effect, but any more would be too much cam so I can’t put the die any further to hit the bottom of the case any more. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Yes, until very recently I was shooting them out of all OEM Glock barrels and the one I use to test is ever so slightly tighter in other ones, so maybe 1 of 10 or 15 that fails my check barrel would actually pass the barrels they’re being shot out of. So I’m using a lee decapping/resizing die and it’s pretty much maxed out, there’s already a decent amount of cam over. But as I mentioned earlier, all of these cases were gauged before loading and any cases that are a little out get tossed, so it’s something that is happening during seating if it’s the base of the case and not the bullet hitting the lands. Should I get an noe expander (or other) to try? I don’t think the lee expander die does much past the mouth of the case Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I have an old OEM barrel I’m using to check my rounds that gets cleaned every time before I use it, sadly I don’t think that’s the issue either. Iv been hoping it was something simple for a while Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I can’t set my crimp any heavier sadly, there is already a light mark on the bullet Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Yes, a lot of them are at the bullet. This one has a little bit on the bullet, but more at the bottom of the case. All of these cases passes case gauge before they were loaded Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I’ll try to put up some pictures tonight or tomorrow, I did do the sharpie test and they were running on the bullets. The first 1k or so were loaded with an OAL of 1.13-1.14”. Then all the sudden I got a 25% failure rate and as I worked down to 1.10” I still get about 10%. I expect there to be variation in my seating depth, so I would have expected the failures to be longer, but that’s not always the case. I’ll try and get a tally of what brass Iv had problems with so far as well and maybe that’ll help. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. GMP, what do you think the problem I’m having is? Not enough expansion? Iv been meaning to get an actual expander instead of the Lee one that came with my dies. Or something else? Since I get it with all different headstamp s I don’t think it’s so much brass? But I honestly am not sure. I had just kind of accepted it at this point tbh Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Anything and everything haha. There is no correlation between failures and headstamp which I thought was kind of odd after reading a whole bunch of other’s comments Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Oddly enough I have had 0 leading issues with their bullets which I was very happy about Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I’m loading the 147 .357”, but I see where you’re coming from. I’m not quite sure what’s going wrong either, but like I said, it was going a ok then randomly went downhill quick. Maybe I’ll try messing with my flare and see. I’m using the lee powder through expander and I’m looking for a 38 expander right now. Maybe that’ll help a bit. Thanks for the help Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. That’s what I thought, and bought thousands of them, then all the sudden I started getting about a 10% failure rate from bullets hitting the rifling in my barrel even after dropping the oal by 0.04” after about 1k rounds with no problems and nothing else had changed. I’m still not sure why I’m having problems, but I’m just finishing what I have then I’m gonna have to pull all the ones that won’t work and move on. Although it sucks cause those bullets are the most accurate Iv shot out of my Glock 34 so far Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. it appeared some, or all of these were tracers too. Not sure if that helps at anyone at all Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I contacted them with the picture and they said it was not theirs :/ the search continues lol. Thanks for the lead though! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Nothing wrong with that, I don’t usually sort by headstamp anyways, but I have no idea what it is and I need to know lol. You know when you just can’t figure something out and it drives you nuts until you figure it out? That’s where I’m at. Iv been googling for about 7 hours trying to figure it out now. Someone out there has to know what this headstamp is Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
