    You can run 1680 for both super and subs when you go over 178gr. Up until you can use 1680 for supers but that is a full case, really full. While h110 can cycle subs, it is not nearly as reliable as 1680 or CFE BLK. So as long as your are over 178, 1680 for both. Under that, h110 super and 168/CFE subs.

    I crimp with the Lee factory crimp die on all AR loads.

    I guess the lee factory crimp is my next die to get. Just found out that the shell holders that came with the kit only work for the handheld primer. So I had to order shell holders for the press. So I have to wait now for those to get in before the real fun begins. If I bought factor unused Hornady shells should I still run them through the resizing die as a jus Incase since they were just placed loosely in a bag or can I start priming away? The are within about 3 thousandths of max case length according to the Hornady reloading manual. The manual says 1.368 I’m in getting 1.365 or even 1.36 even

    I run all new brass through the sizing die before loading. I've never had a problem making sure they were sized properly.

    Every die set comes with a shell holder.

    Not the used one I bought. Lesson learned. But also good to know.

    Only Lee dies. Good dies make you buy your own.
