I bought a bunch of .223 brass at the beginning of the summer, but because of the other summer project I haven’t been able to do much with it other than run it through a tumbler and de-prime some of it. Since I’m relatively new to loading rifle rounds I thought it best to do a quick review just to make sure I’m doing things properly.
I stumbled across Carteach0’s blog, and he had a lot of good information on case prep (Part 1, Part 2, and especially Part 3) which helped me out a great deal on some priming issues I was experiencing.
So Carteach0, if you come by this way, Thanks for the great write up!
On a side note, I really don’t like the RCBS swage die. I just find it to be a pain in the rear to use. Do I have a $90 worth of dislike to go try the Dillon swage tool?? I’m not sure since I only paid $8 for the RCBS die….but then again, I do have another 800 rounds to process…..
