308 Lapua

Recommended Posts

I am hoping to get some advice on a problem that I am having with Lapua brass.

The problems is that when I load it on the Super 1050,every now and then the loaded round will not let the bolt of my rifle close.

Is this a common problem with this brass? I have the die set as per the manual maybe even a little harder than it should be. The length of the round is well within the reloading manuals Recommendations.

I have used this press to load .270 and never had this problem with it.

Should I try and wind the sizing/depriming die down even more or should, I use some other die rather than the Dillon Die.

Thanks in advance to any reply

Sounds to me like the shoulder isn't getting bumped enough. Lapua brass is highly sought after in the precision world due to its consistency. Ive got maybe a handfull of pieces here and there but I don't load it. I would take the piece of sized brass that won't work and use it to reset the die to where it will work and go from there.
