So I took one round & kept seating the bullet deeper in the case until I could put the cylinder in the gun & rotate it without binding up. All said & done the top of the bullet rim was "almost" flush with the top of the case. Would this be safe to shoot or would the pressures be too high? These are starting loads using W231. Thanks for any advice-Dave
Would you mind posting your OAL measurements? What reference are you using for your data? I'm not sure what you mean exactly by the bullet rim being flush, ( pretty sure, but that's not close enough by my standards ) if you have a pic of before and after, that would be GREAT.
