Every case?

Don't think with the carbide die you need to lube more than one in five.

Be sure you're not over-lubing them.

True. I do not use carbide dies. I chamfer my cases after length trimming if I do length trim, and then run the neck brush in each case. Then roll em and load em.

I bet chamfering solves the problem. I prefer BT bullets because of this problem as well.

I had a problem with this happening when loading Barnes TSX bullets.

More chamfer, more expander-problem solved.

I am experimenting with cast GC bullets in .223 .

I got spoiled loading FMJBT bullets , had to go back to doing a lot more case prep for the cast bullets . Including champhering (sp) the mouth of the brass .

I too , bet that helps the problem .

God bless

I also have a 550, and it is very simple to drop the expander a smidgeon and bell up that case just a wee bit also. Its a simple matter of adjustiing your dies.

Well, I dropped the expander a tad, used a bit of lube, chamfered and had good results. I also tried some projo's covered with moly. They were nice and smooth, no rolling. The regular copper jacket projo's did much better too. Thanks for the input guys. Great help here.

I like BT projo's better also but they are more expensive and right now I am loading for mass fun at the range. Cheaper is better when only shooting with friends and family for fun. Hunting and serious target practice get BT's.
