I had something kinda strange happen today. I was loading up some rounds and I had a jam in a case near the very beginning of the run but after all my OAL and Powder Checks. After that I looked in my loaded case been and saw about 10 bullets in the bin and a case with no bullet and powder spilled inside. So I trashed those rounds and kept loading. About 10 rounds later I checked OAL length again and they were .020 too short. Adjust my micro seater out the proper amount and checked the one I just seated. Too long now. Adjusted it back to the original setting. PERFECT. Hmmm. Odd. Loaded a couple more, checked the one after crimp for OAL. Too short by .020 again. Repeat steps above after cleaning stem. Weird still too short. Then I noticed the crimp die seemed to raise and have more pressure then normal. Pop the crimp insert out (Dillon, kinda nice like that), flipped it over. What the He!!. Why is their a bullet jamed up in my crimp die??? Beat it out with a squib rod Lizard just happened to give me on friday. Sure enough, when the case jamed some how a bullet did not get seated and it went to the crimp die, got jamed in the crimp die and pushed up. Now my crimp die was seating and crimping at the same time. Very old timie but not what I wanted. Things are back to normal now. Of course I have about 30 rds of bullets seated .020" to short. Not sure if the are worth shooting or not. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
