Youngeyes Posted December 21, 2011 Share Posted December 21, 2011 I started loading for a Desert Eagle (YES!) and am having problems. Using 550b I use a separate taper crimp die RCBS steel dies. Dillon doesn't make them and no one makes a carbide die unless you pay as much as the press costs. 30 Gr H110 with new starline brass 1.580 OAL as per manual 300 gr speer hollow point. My problem is that I have a number of bullets that I can set back into the case by pushing down hard while on the bench. I use min belling and have rechecked this. I'm using the large funnel as per Dillon. I started very light on the crimp then moved up to too much crimp. I've read in some other sites about some similar issues but no resolution. Also only one or two short threads. I know these things are tough to diagnose but could use some thoughts. I'm all out. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
