Re: Lehigh Defense "Controlled Chaos"

kmiles, I and others have found the max to be 5.8gr.. Above that is damaging to your pistol and self. 5.4gr to 5.6gr will be ok for bulk. 5.6gr to 5.8gr will shorten the life of reloading the brass.

Re: Decapping before wash or after?

I use a universal de-primer on all my brass and then clean them. I use Hornady one shot to lube for sizing and have never removed it because per Hornady it does not effect the loads. I do this even if I will be using my progressive press. But all in all as Jay says "to each his own".

Re: need help on which reloading dies to purchase?

Just because they scratch the lacquer off does not necessary mean you need a new set of dies. Before spending anymore money on new dies, try getting your hands on some mother's mag wheel buffing polish. Put some on a shotgun patch wrapped around a .30cal nylon cleaning brush and chuck it in a drill....

Re: Primer Problem

Bazzer, I do not want to sound condescending. But based upon what you just posted you should not be reloading until you do alot more reading about reloading. You especially should not be reloading the 5.7x28 round. That knowledge is basic to reloading any caliber, and as you just figured out can be ...

Re: Frangible bullets 5.7x28mm @ 36 grain steel 15 feet

You cannot buy the 42 gr ones from sinterfire. Only 45gr and higher. If you want the 42gr ones Rocky Mountain Reloading has them for a good price.

Re: AR57 Recoil spring

I have a Gen 2 12" upper and ran into that issue when I first received it. I simply stretched the spring out a little more to solve that issue. My weak spring issue I attributed to its age and abuse from the thousands of rounds I had sent down range when it was attached to my 5.56 upper. I have trie...

That is very odd without even those things. Is it the right size collet? Otherwise the only other thing that comes to mind is just the setup.

I had a batch of SS197 that gave me issues. What I ended up doing was to close the collet down completely then run the bullets up to break the seal. I then pulled them like normal. And that is using the hornady collet puller.

Yep moisture and humidity can wreck havoc on loads. When I first started reloading years ago I stored my powder in the garage which was not climate controlled. I started noticing my load data was starting to fluctuate. Another reloader suggested I monitor and record the temp and humidity. And sure e...

About the only other thing that comes to mind could be a moisture/humidity issue when you are loading powder. But your results are pretty baffling. As for your wife just tell her it's a critically important experiment that you have to run. Lol

Re: Loading with AA #7

How are you measuring your powder for your loads? Based on what you are describing it's sounds like your loads are not equal across the board. If you are using a powder drop, I suggest you stop until you can verify each drop every time with a digital or beam scale. Most powder drops are not accurate...

Re: Loading with AA #7

Sometimes you don't always get the right amount of tension when sizing. The easiest way to see if your bullets are shifting in the case is to seat one then push the bullet tip against your table. If it goes in you do not have enough tension and I would suggest you look into getting a crimper. You co...
