    I hopefully set the capping and resizing die correctly. I followed the instructions but will have someone I trust double check me.

    What kind of dies did you say you have? And you said this was for 300bo, right?

    I have a used set of rcbs fl 300blk dies. I did the turn until it touches the cases holder, then lower ram and turn the die another 1/8 to I believe 1/4 turn more then set locking ring

    Sounds right to me. Go for it.


    My last bench was too low to run the ram fully on my Lee single stage. The handle can be indexed to different positions and I would install the die and adjust the arm so "top dead center" on the ram equated to parallel to the floor which also was perfect for my arm. Loaded thousands of rounds that way without any issues. Adjusted my pro1000s on my new bench the same way so it will stop where my hand normally stops.

    I went out yesterday afternoon for a couple of hours and cast up a big pile of these. This pic was taken early in the session. That's a 123 gr hollowpoint for my 300 Blackout build. The hollowpoint goes clear down to the crimp groove.

    Not having any experience with bullet casting I'm curious as to how you get a hollow point bullet? Does the mold have a retractable core which is removed before the bullet is dropped out?
