He is not reloading, these were some Freedom Munitions he purchased. They didnt have any real crimp as well as a light crimp ring. Dyjital Re-crimped a bunch for him to see if it fixed the issue. Not sure if he roll crimped or used the factory crimp die or what, as he switched over to another brand of equipment. Looking at the pics I think they need a bit more roll in the crimp but that's just me.It may be too coarse/heavy gage of wire in the spring too? That doesn't make sense that the manufacturer wouldn't know what kind of spring was appropriate.
Question @UnionMillsNW ...Have you tried pushing the bullet into the case by hand against the edge of the bench? I would think it would be pretty easy if you getting them pushed in by the tube spring.
I don't recall, are you trimming cases to within .002"-.003"?
