    Fls die issues??

    Have a new set of redding 6.5cm dies
    I had brand new lapua brass which I didnít size and its all now once fired
    I followed my normal ultra sonic clean before sizeing to stop crap from getting through the dies
    Lubed with dillon spray on case lube
    And inside with a qtip wet with dcl

    When run through the die it was making funny Gronching noise and just felt rough
    It did not damage the brass to I carried on seemed to get better after 25 or so
    But still doing it
    Is it just a new die never had reddings before itís just the basic fls die not flash harry bushing etc

    I know the lapua has a small flash hole so I tested the decaping pin before using the die and it fit through sweet as
    So itís not that

    Good morning @rambo-6mmrem, Did you "wash" clean the dies before you start use it? they recommend you take it a part and clean with "Turps", petrol or any other oil cleaning product as they come with some kind of rust protection, if it still feel the same them lets wait and see "what other suggest" LOL.
    Regards the Lapua small primer, i again suggest you keep an eye on it, if the decamping pin "just" goes through you may find yourself bending the pin, i have ask my gunsmith to "polish/shave" down my "Lee" one for no trouble use.
    One thing i can affirm, Redding are great dies!

    I hope i am of "some" help...

    Have an awesome day!

    Mac

    Put it on your ultrasonic cleaner with hot water and detergent...!!!
