What sizing die to reload for 9mm in revolver

Recommended Posts

Got a 627 converted to 9mm and my reloads won't chamber. They case gauged but no dice in the cylinder . What are you guys using to size your brass. Factory ammo fits fine.

Dillon worked fine, but I switched to Lee FC because I was getting some bullet creep.  The 6th, 7th,. 8th round would sometimes creep .100". I was using very little crimp at first, and then down to .376.  Still got bullet creep. I switched to the Lee FC die set at .378 crimp, and all is fine now. 

 

You may also want to get some loaded moon clip check gauges.  I buy mine from Revolver Supply co, and run all my loaded moon clips through them before a match, and again before I run a stage. It helps eliminate any loading problems caused by a bent moon clip.

Will factory 9mm fit the cylinder?

Also how was it converted? 38 super cylinder recut
357 cylinder recut?
New custom cyclinder?

The cylinder questions are more curiosity than anything.

I'm using a 38 super die, then 9mm. 

 

How the heck can it pass the chamber checker and fail the cylinder? If anything I've always seen it the other way around.

Converted? Ask your Gunsmith.

Just for the hell of it what is your OAL? If too long it will cause that also.
