Re: Lee collet question

I ordered a 6x47 die at the same time and it’s too short as well...
Not as bad but still a pain in the rear, just lucky I guess.

Re: Lee collet question

I did the washer trick which worked sort of, now it only sizes about 3.5mm of the neck. I’ve emailed lee to see if they can send a new die. Problem is it’s a custom die which I had to send cases and a projectile for them to make.... The full neck can be sized but I have to do it in 2 passes and chan...

Re: Lee collet question

The die sizes the majority of the neck but doesn’t size the last couple of mm near the case mouth.
I’ll try some pics tomorrow.

Lee collet question

Hi All I have started using my new collet die for my no turn saum, it sizes the neck about 2mm down from the top of the neck which leaves a slightly bell shape which will help when seating the projectile. I’m not sure if that’s how they are meant to work? Is this what normally happens? The other que...

Re: Saum case fail

Great
Now I have to buy another doo hicky
Might not be a bad idea as I don’t have a good system to count how many times a case has been fired.
What systems do people used to keep count?
A mark with a file on the base is one way.

Re: Saum case fail

I tried the paper clip method which was easy enough. The worst cases had a crack starting internally making them quite noticeable to the ones with thinning only which were easy to pick out. Out of 300 cases I had to toss about 12. The ring on the outside of the dodgy cases was a bit of a giveaway. 0...

Re: Saum case fail

Tim, I have a small right angle scribe that comes with the RCBS Case Master tool (any sharped edged right angle scribe will work). Every firing, after I clean the cases and during inspection, holding the scribe in my fingers I run the point down the inside of the powder chamber. You'd be amazed at ...

Re: Saum case fail

Too many firings, Too much pressure, Oversizing case, Sizing Die is under size to chamber, leaving lube on case, not cleaning out chamber after cleaning,Over Annealing (IMO). If the case does not grip the chamber wall it will grow and separate like you have . Thanks for sharing all my reloading tec...

Saum case fail

Hi All I noticed this recently 5BB679E9-A5E9-4881-91E4-15FACA55CD25.jpeg I can’t tell you how many firings the case has had. There are a few other cases with a mark showing around the same distance down the case. Time for some new brass?? Cases have the shoulder bumped approximately 2 thou each time...
