Is it necessary?

Discussion in 'Reloading' started by November Sunrise, Aug 10, 2010.

  1. I just broke down 50 rounds of 9mm as i was interrupted while reloading and wasn't absolutely sure i didn't double charge one while being bothered. The question is. Should i re size the case again before reloading the already primed cases? If so, what is the best , safest way to remove the already newly installed primers? Shoot em? Should i simply remove the primer extractor and re size them?
    Thanks

    Yes, I would resize them. Just take the decapping rod out of the resize die.
     


  3. I don't see the purpose of re-resizing a case that has not been fired. Pull the bullet, bell the case mouth, charge powder, install the bullet, crimp.

    Everything that I have read in books and magazines they all say resize the case.
     
  5. This gets my vote unless you used a large crimp. I have done this several times myself with 45acp, 223, 308. Good luck.

    Also I use powders that will not allow for a double charge. Double charges will be spilling all over the place and will be oblivious. This is just an extra paranoid safety measure I adhere to.

    I would take out the decapping pin and resize them like Unclebob said. You were smart enough to pull them to make sure they were safe, it is only 50 cases so why take the chance of having one bullet set back because of bad case tension.

    When I've come across a reload problem (such as this past weekend when I had two 9mm rounds out of some 2.5K that I found didn't receive a primer), I pull the ammo and completely reload it. Instead of bothering with removing the depriming pin, I let he die remove the good primer, catch it, and reseat it. It's no big deal to deprime a live primer - just take it slow.

    this or really if you don't even want to do that, what are you out if you just punch out the primer into the dead bin .02 cents?

    Not worth pulling your primer pin for that. time involved is not worth it. rebell the case mouth and charge it, crimp and wala...new round.

    When you seat the bullet you stretch the case a bit. When you pull it, the case doesn't spring back. So you have reduced neck tension by not resizing. If you pull bullets, for best results, resize the case w/ the decapper removed. Can you reload w/o resizing, sure, but you will not have consistant neck tension.:dunno:

    To clarify, the OP has 50 rounds under consideration. I surely didn't..... You had me wondering there for a minute, Fred.

    I guess I missunderstood, that he messed up a round while loading 50. So he has 50! that he might have double charged....really?

    if so you are correct, he would be out a dollar, and it doesn't take long to take the decap pin out.

    the upeyes are very helpful...maybe if you did that to the OP he might not have loaded 50 rounds wrong or potentially wrong.

    Well, he already knows he messed up & after he pulls down 50, he'll not forget it.:supergrin: The issue I am sure is he does not know which one of the 50 is possible dbl. so all have to come apart.

    If we were talking about rifles, I would say: resize for neck tension.

    I wouldn't worry it with 9mm -- you are going to taper crimp again anyway after you re-bell the brass and stick the bullet back in place.

    And what do you think you are doing with the 9mm. Taper crimp. It only gets rid of the bell It does not help grip the bullet. Only the sizer die does that. Just the same as a rifle round. Roll crimp is a different story.So if you want too have a chance of having bullet setback, go right ahead and don’t resize a case that you pulled a bullet on. I know people have done thousand and nothing has happened. Do you really want too be the person that it didn’t work?

    What is this term 'taper crimp' you people speak of? Don't you just push the bullet in the case and after you load it hold the gun horizontal so the bullet doesn't slide around?

    There sure is a lot to learn about all this loading stuff. I don't know if I'll ever understand it. I guess you have to be like a genius... only smarter. :dunno:

    Although it is a taper crimp, it is a crimp just the same. It will put tension on the bullet if it is adjusted properly. If the bullets were not fired from the brass, the brass has never expanded as it would during firing. I would not resize them.

    I have pushed live primers out and I have just removed the pin. If I wanted to reuse the primers I would remove the pin.
    But either way I would still re-size.
