71/84

I am using an RCBS mold # 44-379 and cast my own bullets 20-1.

I made my brass out of Starline 45-90 cases, I turn the rim down .007-,010" in a lathe to .595".

I then push a .462 rod down the inside of case until the base/web area swells out to .513/514" (about .460 from base/primer side).

I then size in a die and you are ready to load powder/primer/bullets.

The brass fireforms concentric and I have not lost one case to splits.

after firing I only full length size until I just kiss about 50-60% of the neck and body and check in chamber for smooth chambering.

Its pretty simple if you are the least bit handy with hand tools.
