Yelrdog Posted August 9, 2022 Share Posted August 9, 2022 I have a couple hundred rounds of 38 special that won't plunk into my revolver cylinder. Most can't even be forced in the cylinder chambers. I reloaded these about 12 years ago on my old SDB and I clearly messed them up. I think the problem was with the crimp. Since then I've upgraded to a 650 and have loaded thousands of 9mm & 45ACP so I have a lot more experience/confidence in my reloading skills. However, my 38/357 dies are still limited to my SDB machine (vintage 1994). I intend to re-adjust the machine from scratch and load some new rounds from clean once-fired brass. Once I get the reloader dialed back in can I pull the defective rounds and resize them (without the decapping pin) to preserve the primed brass? I would also be happy to entertain any ideas regarding the original cause of the FTFs if you have opinions/expertise. 38 special HSM brass Laser Cast 158gr LSWC Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
