Paper Remnants

Post by semtav »

Keep seeing this occasionally.
could be the cause of the hi flyer yesterday.
need to pay better attention to each shot.

Fireforming overlength brass so that could also be the cause.

One of the disadvantages of Groove dia paper patching.

Rough interior case necks usually does this especially if you don’t use lube.

Yea those were old reloads. Before I started really polishing the mouth.

Never tried lube on a patch. Might have to give that a test.

Anything to eliminate the DD effect.

Thanks

Or use a lubed felt like ox yoke. I had good luck with them but you cannot store loaded ammo with them.
If they are older rounds give them a spin before you load em. Sometimes they grab

How are you polishing the inside of the case mouth?

Steel wool on a drill.
I do it before and after annealing now and for a lot longer. There were pre revision loads.

At least I didn't get lead flakes with these bullets.

This PP loading is getting tedious, but I'll give that polishing a try. I'm still baffled by those claiming a shot of Dawn with some Lemishine and 1-2 hours tumbling with ceramic media makes the insides as shiny as the outside. I read that many GG shooters worry about uniform case neck tension, but with the typical shallow seating with PP I would think it's not as important. I shall give it a shot after Quigley.
