    Good information here. How exactly does that nose sizer work?

    I dont own one....not needed, but I believe it is a die that screws into a standard press with and insert to size the nose of the bullet. When the bullet nose is sized to fit, a punch is used to push the bullet back out of the sizing insert/die. Rooterpig has one...you might send him a PM if he doesn't reply.

    And I might add , FT made me a custom pusher which pushes the bullet out of the sizer. Have to shoot virgin lead , it’s subsonic. For A 300 bo. The only way to nose size with the Noe sizer is to push in and push out. Was deforming the cavity badly until FT mad the pusher. It holds the nose of the bullet from the inside and outside. Like a mirror image.

    I find myself pondering the wisdom of sitting the bullet so close to the lands. I always prefer a little jump to break the crimp before upping the pressure to engrave the lands on the bullet. I suppose as long as you develop the load the same way you use it, but when you are dealing with a cartridge with such a small shoulder, it seems like one more narrow margin for consideration. Maybe more so if you are ridding the high end of the performance curve.

    I'm not one to be paranoid you will blow up a rifle with a little extra pressure, but when you consider all those what if's, its not hard to get some inconsistent velocities that effect your accuracy.

    An interesting thread for sure.
