PS I'm showing the good side of the case. LOL

Sorry to be such a pain in the bum but like I said before my log book shows my last re-loading session was in 2009 and I have gotten rusty. That and my room was turned into a catch all for several years for anything else that didn't have a home in our home till I had to fight my way into the room. I was organized to make some fair ammo in 6.5X55, 7.62X51 and 30-06 and my favorite 303 British.
I picked up my love of the 6.5 at Bisley in the UK when I was invited to the Trafalgar Match by the service rifle champion and used his M41b on three courses.

Again thank you for your assistance.

Your setting die is in to far. Turn out he body about one turn.

The way I set up a seating die is to put one empty piece of brass in the shell holder. Raise the ram all the way up. Ten thread in the seating die till I just feel some resistance. Then turn back one quarter turn. Then control bullet seating depth with the seating stem.

Well I got everything cooking along great now. Made up 50 of the nny cases last night with 174g SMK's and 41g of 4064. :clap: They have ruined the Laguna Seca/Mazda Race Way range. Took down the 300 and 500 yard steel and limit everyone to 100 yards so that sucks. Going to take the grandson out to a new place and let him run my back up Mosin PU Sunday.

Thanks again for getting us on track.
