Hello All, I recently received my XL650 and have run into a snag when setting up my dies for 300 Blackout. I almost exclusively reload subsonic with cast bullets for the 300 blackout. Because of this, I need to bell the case mouth ever so slightly to avoid cutting into the bullet. On my old Loadmaster, I had five stations so I could fit an Expander die in slot 2 and run with it. On my XL650, my only extra station is taken up by the powder check so no room for the expander die. I need solutions. From my point of view, I have two main options: Remove the Powder Check(prefer not to since I bought it) or Run exclusively jacketed/plated bullets(not really financially feasible for me). I have been unable to find a powder funnel that would bell the case mouth for the powder measure (please correct me if I am wrong. At this point, I'm probably going to end up removing the powder check but are there any other solutions you guys/gals can think up? Thank you for any help!
I was the CRO on Stage 6 [the NVG house] again this year and got a lot of insight on the 300 Blackout from the owner of Gemtech - Mr. Vickers. Gemtech and PWS have put a lot of time into perfecting this round / rifle / suppressor and I got to see firsthand its performance over the long weekend. If you’re considering building one – I may be able to help. Earl
