I've made more progress towards taming the terrible decapping system, though I've still got some tweaking to do.

I've made some progress taming the terrible decapping system, though I've still got some tweaking to do.
►A rat tail file works on the hot glue, so it's not hard to tweak things.
►I made an upper plug. Lube a .223 and drop it into the ram neck first. Glue, leaving space for the shell holder. Remove the brass and trim the face.

These gauges would have saved me a LOT of work if I'd had them when I started reloading brass.

The trim lock slipped again, so I had to wrench on it.

A viewer who's just started making bullets asked about making soft points, and it lead me to make this video.
►Bear in mind that this is for .224 bullets, but can be adapted to whatever caliber you swage for.

I picked up a few things from Titan Reloading.

I fixed a couple more issues with the RCBS hand primer.

I think I just need to seat the 145 gn a little deeper to get 100% chambering.
I've got the 225 gn feeding great.

►I was told by Magnetospeed that alloy content and coatings affect reading, not the sensitivity setting. For accurate readings use commercial bullets. So it seems thatt raditional or doppler chronos are a better choice for casters.

►Installing a Joe Bob Outfitters Trigger Adjuster.
►Thordsen Customs Gen III FRS-15
►Damage Industries Inc 45° Safety

I think I'll end up installing these on all my ARs.

The velocities look incredible because they are just that... NOT credible.

Things are finally starting to look up as for 300 BO.

A stuck bullet like I've never seen before.
Has anyone else experienced this sort of thing?

I didn't realize that this was hidden for some reason, so it's a bit old (3/18/19). Even so, I figured I'd go ahead and publish it anyway.

I'm not all that experienced in shotshell reloading, and I bought some powders than may just work, but they're anything but mainstream, so I'm in need of assistance with Russian slugs.
Thanks in advance.

Ever wondered if your load was compressed or not?
Now you can know for sure.

I may be crazy, but I'm not insane!

Mostly swaging related with a bit of this and that thrown in here and there.
