Help!! Cases denting. ?Hydraulic?



Thank you one and all. :s0067: That was it. :s0094: I spent 45 yrs in the auto industry and over lubrication was NEVER an issue. But I can see where hydrostatic lock can develop in that small area. This is the first of many problems I am sure to come across, and I will not hesitate to ask again. You guys & gals are the best. :s0160:
A quick note about spray lubes. Most take a little while to set and will cause a case to stick if the lube is still wet.

RCBS makes a nice little case extractor for when ya stick a case in the sizing die.

As mentioned by most all of the other respondents, those are lube dents. If not using the case for a heavy charge, they can be fireformed back out.
