I turned my RCBS seating die into an expander and I bought this Hornady seating die. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0055PK2EY/ref=ya_aw_oh_bia_dp?ie=UTF8&psc=1 It comes with a stem for FN bullets and one that will work for the FTX and spire points. I made the mistake of ordering a FTX stem and did not need it. So if anyone needs a FTX/spire point seating stem for there Hornady seater hit me up.

any chance of setting up a call tag program with ups / fedx so we can just drop off & label them at the nearest location?

Here is the chamber cast I have been trying to get around to do.

Bruce, Mark, if ya'll would like to take a closer look let me know.

I measured the end of the chamber and it is measuring .380 , and just after that it is .359 and tapers down to .358 ~ .357 depending on if you are in a land or a groove. If you look closely in the .075 area you can see that the rifling is faint after the chamber area and slowly gets more prominent. Measuring the best I could from the mouth of the chamber to the end of the chamber seemed to come out 1.435 which added to the bolt face depth of 0.129 gives you 1.564, give or take. Moleman's recommend trim length is 1.595 for a difference of .031 in case length. Could that cause the problems we are seeing?

Is it possible that they were reamed ~0.031 shorter than expected? I can see where that might happen depending on the go gauge used.

Willbird, that is an interesting reamer design.  The bevel at the case mouth isn't good for headspacing on, more for like they just added some freebore to a 357max reamer that would normally end with just a taper from the case mouth dia to bore dia.  The base dia is a little tight for an auto and the freebore is a bit long for most stuff.  They must of had something in mind when they made it though IDK what that was.

Looking at I thought maybe it was intended for using 223 rimmed brass in a single shot.

Just checking in. Seems like all has gone quiet with the barrel rework process. I want to make sure that I don’t miss the opportunity.

For everyone sending their barrels back Please enclose a note stating if you just want the chambers cleaned up or if you also want the throat lengthened to .150 from the .075 of the standard reamer

thank you

Now that's exciting. Time to disassemble this baby. I have not put it on the scale yet. Because I don't have the MD made yet. But this build is light.

I finally got to test my ladders on saturday! Found out my lab-radar needs to be switched from pistol to rifle velocities at 1800fps- kinda screwed up testing a bit. Data I was able to record is in data sheet. Started too low, but wanted to do a somewhat safe side comparison between 1680 and sw blk, again sw blk wins! Fps range from 1721-1842 with SW BLK- 1680 velocities were screwed up due to my chrono being on rifle for first two rounds, but the last 3 groups ranged from 1683-1718 fps. I didn't get in my groove ( get my head in the accuracy shooting game) until half way through SW BLK ladder, but I'm still pretty happy. We are already in 35 Rem. velocities and I haven't really got to high pressure yet. Everything cycled fine so far! Fed fine and ejected 4 o'clock. Primers all had very round edges yet and only started to see very light flattening (had to really look) of the primers on 25gr SW BLK charge. All fresh Starline brass, all shot at just over 50 yards.  (sorry if its upside down)357artargets1.jpg

Try W296 or LilGun.  So far W296 is generally the best for speed.

Yeah I got some h110 and lil gun, going to finish sw blk first, thought would be nice for fireforming loads. Not done yet, lol. I really enjoy shooting this caliber!
