TimG_SC Posted December 31, 2011 Share Posted December 31, 2011 I am new to reloading and I have anotther question for you guys. In alot of my loaded rounds I am getting a slight bulge in the middle of the case that appears to be where the bottom of the bullet sits. I am using 147g Montana Gold's loaded with 3.2gr of tite group. I set station 1 with the die right at the shellplate at full stroke, with case measured in the middle @ .375 and the bottom of the case near the grove is around .383. Station is charging consistantly while flaring to the low .390's. Station 4 is seating to 1.125 and station5 crimp is around .393. Is this slight bulge normal and if not what do you think is causing it? I shot a small batch (30 rounds) and the all fed and ejected fine in my XDM 5.25 and chronod. At an average of 883 fps. Thanks in advance for your help...you guys have been awesome so far answering my questions. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
