Don't Force It- or What I Do to Cases that Piss Me Off
« on: December 29, 2011, 05:14:38 pm »


Like I said, don't force it.

This is what happens when you wreck the last .40S&W case in the push-thru resizer last night, don't notice because it's the last one, and try to do another one the next day. It takes a fair amount of force to get a Glocked case through the die, but a little more will give your case beer can-like properties.

I used equal measures of hammer, punch, and swearing to get them out.

The good news is the primer pockets are still good, and I think between trimming and the case cleaner I can load them. :neener

I absolutely despise Glocks. That's why I only own two.

     :clap :clap  Nice work.  Nice work indeed.
    This may be considered as the true palladium of liberty. . . . The right of self defence is the first law of nature: in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any colour or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction- St. George Tucker, Blackstone's Commentaries

    I got a good collection of ones I have to pull, but they will be mostly salvageable. These two wouldn't make it through the case feeder.
