Reloading Podcast 488 – basic straight wall part III

Hello, and welcome to the Reloading Podcast here on the Firearms Radio Network.  

Tonight the gang is continuing on the straight wall cartridge reloading process.

  • Flaring the case
  • Charging the case
  • Seating the bullet
  • Taper crimping the loaded round


Email from, Dan:


HI Jim


I hope this email finds you well. It has been many years since our last exchange. I have a problem I hope you can help me with. I am de-priming 223 brass. It is mixed range brass I have been picking up from different ranges I shoot at. When I say it is a mixed bag I mean it is everything and anything. Lately I have been getting off center flash holes. Not too bad but enough to break the pin on my Hornady die. I have replaced it 4 times in 60 days. Is there anything as far as dies that might be more robust? I have also come across these brass flash holes and am in amazement as to what the heck they are? Looking for your wisdom on these issues.
