Default Issues with feeding

I recently started having an issue feeding my reloads. I have a RCBS starter five, and am loading .45 with 230gr RN lead. I checked the dimensions and they seem to be in tolerance, but are not near as pretty as some that I have done. Maybe I pressed them in too far? But they don't go below the Min OAL.

Shooter Girl,

What type of feeding problem are you haveing? What type of crimp are you using is the case lip catching or is the round lodging at the top of the chamber?

Just a normal compression crimp. I use the RCBS three die Carbide set.

A few of them seemed to catch at the top of the ramp, but most of them were simply keeping it slightly out of battery.

Sounds like you are doing 1 of 2 things wrong.

1. To much crimp
2. Not enough Crimp.

Would it help if you had pictures of the ones that wouldn't chamber?

Pics of yourself are always encouraged.

Somehow I doubt that pictures of me will solve this problem.

Well, I have run into some problems loading 45 ACP LEAD bullets- if the case mouths are not chamfered, they may shave a bit of lead when bullet is seated. Since these headspace off the case mouth, just smidgen of lead that has overlapped the case mouth screws up going fully into battery. You might look real hard at the end of the case on your loaded rounds- if you do not have a good clean case mouth AFTER bullet is seated, might be what's doing it. Have had to use a very sharp blade and trim a few.
