Thread: Bullet Seating force

    Bullet Seating force

    Should I be concerned that once fired brass needs more force to insert the bullet than unfired, same batch BTW. All brass prepared in exactly the same way.

    It all depends on what you are trying to achieve? If it bothers you, anneal the brass. Regards JCS

    Surely you should only be concerned if it produces inaccuracies then

    What brass, what load what cartridge?
    Lapua in .243 by any chance!? (thick hard brass in a cartridge known for "growing")

    Can't think any of mine appears to be harder to seat across several cartridges/calibres and loads

    Did you full length resize your brass before loading the first time? If not you would expect a difference.~Muir
