+1.....I do this to make sure the gas check is flush and straight on the base of the bullet. I do around 50 at a time then size, and repeat! I dump out a hand full of gas checks on the bench, insert a bullet, tap and push aside.rimrock said:Call me obsessive. I've started seating gas checks by tapping them onto the bullet base with a rawhide hammer. If they don't easily tap on, I reject that cast bullet and remelt it. "Easily tap on" of course is very subjective and sometimes depends on my mood. The bullets easiest to reject are the ones that are too loose after having the check tapped on. I use my Lee push through to then crimp the check on the base of the bullet.
Interesting.........looks like a good way to crimp checks to bullets you don't want to size down.blue today said:I found this on You tube that I am going to try. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7icAjIajJBg&feature=related
