got some problems with the new Dakota brass ?
anyone else use a 20 tac.
What problems are you having Bob?
I have a couple hundred new dakota's with no issues.
I found this new batch are tight to fit into the shell holder before i have even fired them, so i have used 50 rounds in the last few weeks and i full sized them tonight ready to reload the same batch for my next session,
and they are a tad tighter/harder to get into the shell holder.
all my last batch where fine up to and including 5 reloads??
same problem here shellholder in autoprimer very tight to insert and extract after priming i am using a 223 shellholder as my box dosent contain one for .20
and as the tac is supposed to be a necked down 223 i thought it should be easy but they are a pain to get out the primer very very tight
I can't comment about shell holders as I use a Forster co-ax press.
I am interested in Lapua's response.
You have no doubt covered this Bob, but have you taken a cloth and something like a bent paper clip and cleaned the inside rim of the shellholder.
I have had 200 Dakota with no issues but they are a 'firm' fit.
pete these are worse than firm got too really pull hard to get them out the primer starting to take little nicks out of the case rim
I have also checked my reloading books (a bit out of date for the Tac) on the 223 (same base dimensions as the Tac} and both say .378", so perhaps you and Bob can let us have the dimensions on cases that you are having difficulty with.
