Re: Get a GRIP! (on the bullet.... that is).
I'm not sure I follow you.
Are you saying that when seating "Flat Based" bullets (no boat tail) you are having difficulty getting the bullet started?
If so, then don't worry, this is perfectly normal.
Make sure you chamfer the inside of the neck. Place the bullet on top of the case mouth and hold it there with your fingers while raising the ram slowly. Once the tip of the bullet has entered the base of the die let go of the bullet and continue raising the ram to seat the bullet.
If you are crushing necks and shoulders then you have your seating die set up wrong.
