Hey guys, my brand new swager doesn't work! I tried both the large and small swaging rods and of course the 30 cal locator rod, but the Lake City .308 once-fired sparkly clean military brass doesn't have its primer pocket reamed at all! The ridge is still there and primers do not seat after multiple swagings with both rods. The rod is going the full stroke, it is properly adjusted and so is the little spacer block. It is also set screwed in place and adjusted for the lake city stuff. What's the deal?! I've looked everywhere, and posting here is my last resort. What idiot oversight am I making? Thanks guys.
I just got a new swage pin after reading the other Dillon Super Swage thread. The problem I have now is I am having an issue with some brass and getting an uneven depth on the primer pocket. I can tell there will be an issue by the way the brass sits on the receiving pin. It seems like there might be some extra metal around the flash hole on the inside of the case. I am not able to see well enough inside the case to confirm and have not cut one in half as of yet. Has anyone else seen this issue? The pictures below show a primer pocket gauge. The other thing about the depth is that it seems like the swage is sometimes pushing the primer pocket to deeper on one side. I am not sure id that is an issue with it not being centered or if that is another issue with the extra metal near the primer pocket.
