Hi, I have just started loading some 6.5-284 for my Blaser,
Having only used factory norma in the barrel I bought second hand I decided to load some lapua cases.
While making a dummy round to find a oal I found it was tight to shut the bolt on a once fired and neck sized only case so I ran a couple through the body die...................still hard to shut the bolt...............might even be worse!
After making a gauge to fit over the neck that indexed on the shoulder I found the only difference in the cases were length at the shoulder.
None of my lathe tools would touch the hardened body die so to try my suspicions I ground some metal off the shell holder with the belt sander putting the base of the case closer to the die!
This made the body die just bump the shoulder........perfect.
Anyone know if this is a common problem?
I will get someone to grind the required amount off the body die when I get a chance.
