    I need help. My reloads are not cycling smoothly. About every third shot theyre either not extracting from the chamber or are not fully seating against bolt. I am not having this problem with store bought ammo. My loads are once fire lake city brass, hornady 150 grn fmj's, 42.4 grns IMR 8208 XBR, and remington 9.5 large rifle primers. 150 grn Hornady fmj's are loaded per HOrnady manual data, not the service rife data, I couldt find the exact 150 grn data in the service rifle section. Guns up bro's, semper fi.

    Ive only been reloading for 9 months so any constructive criticism is greatly appreciated.

    Welcome. Check out the Ammunition and Reload section (scroll down on the home page) and post your question there. Someone is bound to offer a suggestion or two or three....:)
