  1. FL Sizing Dies vs. Bushing dies

    Well, I loaded three rounds of Speer BTSP in my 308 yesterday afternoon. I used Hornady brass. All three pieces weighed within 1 grain of each other. As I seated the bullets, two felt “normal”. The last one was significantly harder to seat. At 100 yards, the first and third shot landed...
