I have had such great luck in other threads here that I thought I would pose another question with all of you.
I am a beginner realoader. I have a Lee Press with all the std accessories. I have a 30-06, .357mag and .380 that I have learned to reload. I have been following the 'book' to the letter, start loads only to this point. My purpose was #1 to save money #2 to customize loads #3 to have fun.
SO here goes the question(s).
1> I have found that there are many cases where there is no match to be found with calibre+bullet weight+bullet type+powder combinations. Do you guys find it easy to and safe to match all of the above with the nearest match and just go with it? Like, 100grain round nose in Magtech not listed but another make is listed under same weight...
2> Can a too snug of a fit bullet, cause a case to show signs that might otherwise look like a too heavy load? Primer rear expansion/case bulge?
3> in my 357 mag reloads, a formula is listed for the powder I use. The powder only fills the case about half maybe less. Is that a problem?
Any experienced out there, I would appreciate input if you have any.
