    Yeah. I do it a bit quicker with a countersink bit in the drill.

    Still a pain as I did a couple thousand 50 at a time. And used a giraud tool to trim and chamfer. They are all loaded up now. So less work loading them next time for the ones I manage to pick up.

    What primers are you using?
    Maybe the chamber is out of spec?

    I would hesitate to keep shooting that until a gunsmith has looked at it.

    A vld reamer, a corded drill with the push button keep on break finger button, g clamped to the bench, and keep feeding brass. Result, de crimped brass and bloody sore thumbs.


    As to op, head space issues.
    Please excuse spelling, as finger speed is sometimes behind brain spped........ Or maybe the other wayy.....

    i use a rubber band(old tube) or a cable tie pulled over the trigger on a drill sitting in a vice for all the case tools.
