2nd batch went smoother
Digital scale, kinetic bullet puller, fully sizing the shell, consistent flare stroke and tapping out 6.8 grains of Power Pistol in each round gave me a much smoother loading session this time. The bullets all seated properly this time. (Yeah, also checked that primers were seated flush with base of case.)
I think my next investment will be a case tumbler. All I'm cleaning the brass with so far is the white nylon bore brush that came with one of my Glocks.
I'll keep on loading .40 and shooting the G27 at IDPA until my 38 comes back, then will start loading GAP.
There's a fundamental flaw in a system that passes laws that put an onerous burden on law-abiding citizens, but fails to prosecute the criminals who break those laws.
