  1. Problem solved adding the brass dryer solved the problem in the 1k rounds post they air dryer, 100% success rate
  2. Thank you all for the various feedback, it is GREATLY appreciated, I will build a few experiments, and so what I get. I enjoy the experiment side of it!
  3. Repost ish, as last one was close by mod for use of "self defense", and the responses that created. Thinking about loading carry rounds. I find myself not practicing live fire with my carry gun, simply due to the cost per round is too high. I reload my own target and competition loads, so I am think about buying 1000 124 gr hollow points, and reloading my own self defense rounds, so I can afford to practice with my carry gun using the same ammo I carry in it. I am using Alliant sport pistol Looking to buy 9mm 124gr Hybrid Hollow Point bullets Once fired Nick

  5. Cabela’s has federal black pack on sale for 12 cents a round with free shipping
  6. Please don't let my story push you out. Yes it was 5% failure rate, but the experiments to find the root cause, and then solve the problem, was a great experience, and you can learn from my mistakes, and not have to learn them on your own. Reloading is actually therapeutic. I have a fairly stressful job, and I looked forward to reading all the advice here, creating an experiment, loading a batch, shooting it at the range, and draw up the next experiment.
  7. range report, 100% of my 300 rounds fired today! I am going to conclude, it was residual moisture, and now that I have a dryer, I expect to continue >99% success rate. As for the 600 rounds I have that iu expect 5% failure, I will run these as practice ammo, and use them up in short order. Moving forward, (after I consume the remaining 8K CCi), I will be moving to Winchester primers, as the seat more repeatable in my 650... Thanks to all those who helped me down this path!
  8. combination, again used 4 difeerant guns, 1 canik does have wollfe and glock spring combo kit for the canik, an aftermarket trigger, and a couple of other mods, 5% failure rate, (5 in 100) 1 canik is bone stock, 5% failure rate (5 in 100) 1 glock 26 bone stock 5% failure rate, (1 in 20) 1Glock 34 modified, springs barrel, trigger 4% failure rate. (4 in 100). I have purchased a dryer, and have generated the following experiments, Loaded 100 rounds CCi primers, (measured the depth at CCi spec of .005 - .008In), SNS 125 bullet, range brass tumble cleaned only
  9. same failure through 4 pistols, 2 caniks, a glock 26 and a glock 34, all had ~5% failure rate. What would make you think it was the pistol?
  10. as per the other post here with regards to liquid processing, I think I might be facing both issues. I did air dry, then put in a bucket, and close the lid. I have since added a tumbler to "polish" the brass, and have ordered a dryer for my brass, post ultrasonic clean. I will not make it to the range for a few days, but, my next test will be as follows, ultra sonic clean, followed by corn cob tumble, (after it has fully dried), and then loaded at the CCI spec, og .005 - .008. I will shoot these rounds, and expect 100% success. Th
  11. thank you all for your responses. greatly appreciated. I cannot get to answering all the questions, but here is my update for tonight. CCI requested i set the depth at .005 -.008 inches, where most of mine were flush, i pulled apart mu primer seat station on the press, and found a couple of gun powder flakes. I cleaned this entire assemble, and now i am routinely seating primers in the spec as per cci.
  12. one bone stock, one with aftermarket trigger, but failures are in both at about the same rate
  13. I just started reloading , and in my first batch, I have a 5% failure rate. Background, I have two local long term re-loaders who helped guide me down the road to getting started. I purchased a used Dillon 650 press, (from the classifieds of this forum), Had my buddy help me run the first batch, (under his direct supervision), Components, range brass CCI small pistol primers Bullseye powder SNS polymer coated 125's Our first loads are as follows, 20 rounds at 3.8 gns of powder 20 rounds at 4.0 gns of powder 20 rounds a
  14. Just purchased a used 650 with all the bells and whistles its my first press, and I only know what is it n the Lyman reloading handbook 49th edition. i only intend to load 9mm 124/125 gn I have started picking the brains of those I know who reload, but figured I would post here as well. any direction you can point me in for new first time loader is Greatly appreciated. also looking for best place to buy powder, primers, and projectiles thank you in advance
