- From Eric Smith: I have a couple of questions. A few episodes ago Jim was talking about “Case Neck Turning”. I understand this is to even out the wall thickness of the neck, also there is “Case Neck Reaming”. Now my guess is that reaming will also even out the neck wall thickness only from the inside. I really enjoy the podcast and look forward to it each week .Eric Smith My first question – Is my guess on the purpose of “Case Neck Reaming” correct, if so what is the difference between doing it from the inside vs. the outside?, if not then what is the purpose of it.
- My second question – I have recently formed 30-06 cases to 25-06 with a RCBS Form/Trim Die and am concerned that the case neck thickness has increased during the process and that now it will cause chambering problems (I didn’t think about this until I formed all my cases so I didn’t get a wall thickness measurement before forming to compare with). Should I do anything with the case necks and if so what should I do Turn it or Ream it or something else.
- Posted by Christopher and Chasidy Gillis: Welp. Totally messed that up. It was supposed to be .223 75gr HPBT rounds. The first one is the worst. The dies were hornady dies, I set them up, same as I do for .308, ran them out so I could slowly turn them down and eventually (and very slowly) get the COAL down to 2.250" needless to say, any time I pulled the lever down and ram went all the way up, well you see what happened. Help! Only two out of ten survived. Not a good introduction to .223!
- From Brad Rongitsch: I have a question and hope this is the right place to ask. I have been away from reloading for 10 years. I just get my Dillon Square Deal B working and loaded up some 9mm rounds. I used Montana Gold 147gr bullets with 5.3 grains of Accurate Arms #7 powder. This was the starting load on the powder makers web site. Shot them in a stock Glock 17 and they barely were able to cycle the slide. They stove piped. Question is how much should I increase the powder to get them to function? What is the general guideline for increasing. All the loads I have done before have always worked at the starting load. Thanks.
Thank you for listening.
