Started in with ernest today to get all of my sizing done for the 1st batches of test rounds for my Marlins. Sized up 180 of the 35 cal cases with only minor problems with some very old cases from the relatives. Who remembers head stamps like "Super Speed" or "W-W Super" & FC. The SS & ww Super were stuck case with each try. The FC had an occasional stuck but most went. Got to the 444 cases and really had some problems. I bought 100 cases off a RP head stamp and I had 20 RP's and 40 of the Hornady that were fired from my gun. All of the fire formed sized with no problem, NONE of the RP cases purchased would run up the die more than 3/4 without major problems (stuck case) I got curious and pulled out the 444 and ran each problem case thru the chamber. Each chambered and ejected with no problem. I then did mock load by neck expand, bullet seat and factory crimp and ran these thru the gun, again no hang ups of friction detected. I then took some of the purchased cases and had to lightly neck size to keep the bullet from falling into the case. I then seated the bullet and did the factory crimp. Ran these thru the gun without a problem. I dont want to trash these cases so my thoughts are to load at the low end and fire from my gun and see if they can be reworked. What are your thoughts on this. OH, Also I used Lyman case lube on all the resize and ran them thru the dishwasher in a small mesh bag (Lingerie bag at Wal-Mart) with a zip top. I put about a 1/4 cup of Dawn in the wash and did a double rinse. The cases were clean and bright and about 90% dry. My fingers hurt so will sign off now. Any help would once again be appreciated. As you can probably tell, I am relatively new to the reload scene and could use all the help I can get before blowing my nose off. Have a good one and......................Bottoms Up!
