Re: The 'what are you reloading today?' thread

Nothing now. Just got my first stuck case.

I was seeing scratches down the brass after sizing so I blasted the die a bit with brake cleaner. Then I forgot to get some oil back on the inside. Sized a case and blammo!

I knew it was going to stick as soon as it went in. Tried a little to get it out but decided i'd treat myself and use a little of my tax refund.

New Forster FL die should be here next week

Im reloading .308 150gr accubond for my ar10 does anyone know how much crimp I should use for a non canalure bullet for a semi-auto. ?Pictures of proper crimp would help alot. Right now im just barely touching, enough to see the ring around the neck. Heres a pic but u cant even tell its crimped. I normally use 150 gr remington core lok sp with 41.8gr of H4895 in LC brass. And I love it.

Well, yesterday on the way back from the range we stopped by French Creek Outfitters and I purchased 3 packs of CCI 450's. I will be loading up some 69 gr. .233 for my AR. I have been looking for small rifle primers for a few weeks now and finally found some.
