Been trying to reload a few 06 bullets.. The first one was fine just too long.. So I lowered the seater and then it started crushing the brass right at the shoulder.. I thought maybe I am using too much powder so I reduced the load and tried several more. It seems I can't get the lenght of the bullet to where I want it with out it crushing and bulging out the case.. I am using a lyman die set on a RCBS press and shell holder.. Any ideas what the issue is.. The book says the case length should be 3.34.. But I was trying to get mine down to the same length as some of the factory loads I have which are shorter than 3.34.. Just keeps crusing the case.
