I HAVE FIGURED IT OUT . LIKE I SAID IN MY ORIGINAL POST. MOST OF THESE CHAMBER AND FIRE GOOD. THE ISSUE WAS WHY ARE THEY NOT PASSING THE PLUNK TEST? CAN I IMPROVE THE ROUND? I TOOK MEASUREMENTS OF DIFFERENT AREAS OF THE LEAD BULLET AND COMPARED IT WITH A FACTORY BULLET . I TOOK DIFFERENT MEASUREMENTS OF THE CASE AND THE BULLET. ALL THE DIMENSIONS WERE THE SAME EXCEPT FOR THE .356 DIAMETER OF THE LEAD ROUND NOSE BULLET VERSES THE .355 DIAMETER OF THE FACTORY ROUND. I ALSO MADE A DUMMY BULLET USING A BERRIES .355 DIAMETER ROUND NOSE PLATED BULLET. THE BERRIES BULLET PASSSED THE PLUNK TEST just like the factory round did. I believe the issue is that MORE of the LEAD fatter nose bullet is exposed than the other two. In other words,the factory and the berries bullet have a thinner "round nose" than the lead bullet. I guess that ill switch over to the plated bullets or look for a different brand lead bullet.
