Thread: bullet pulling and reseating

  1. #1

    bullet pulling and reseating

    If i pull some bullets will i have to resize the necks before reseating ?
    If so can the neck resizing be done in the normal way and push out the LIVE primer?

    This topic came up about 6 times last year.
    Not always necessary to resize but it's advisable.
    Ok to deprime live primers but you can remove the pin, or raise the decapper, and leave the primer in place.~Muir

    With the collet dies you are stuck with decapping the live primers. Go easy.~Muir
