Re: small bore??

I'm stumped!

Anybody else got any ideas???

WAIT, Here's an idea. Actually two ideas. Or three.

Pull the bullet out of the cases that will not chamber. THEN, insert the empty case into the chamber to see if it will seat correctly. Then, re-size the case with a full length die set correctly. See if it will go home after re-sizing.

I will be glad to send you a reloaded cartridge to test as "normal". I have some BP rounds made up & can sent one to you for comparison.

I am now thinking that the "new" cases may be of a thicker wall than the normal. Mic the outside diameter of the case at the bullet seating area to see how it measures against the original.

That's all I got.
