The first three rounds were fantastic! After firing these three rounds I walked down range(222 yds as mil'd with my 10x S.S). And then walked back to my firing point, to try some new handloads. At this point things started going down hill in a hurry! After checking each and every round, I found out that I had ruined 20 pieces of brass! After that my concentration was not so good on the remaining 6 rounds I had from another batch.

First three rounds brought confidence, the following rounds give you reason to return and thats perfect in my eyes.

All rounds fired were 178gr. AMAX's over 64.5gr. of IMR 4350 in Winchester brass and CCI large rifle magnum primers. Loaded to 2.86", This load has proven to be pretty accurate out of my model 11 Savage chambered in .300WSM.

The rounds I screwed up were Speer 150gr SPBT,over 68gr. of IMR 4350,same brass and primers. What happened is while trying to crimp these bullets, my seater die was adjusted to low, crushing the brass! oooppps, A pretty expensive mistake, but at least it was caught before harm was done to me or my rifle.

Crimp dies are great but they can come back to bit you in the arse every now and then.  Same has happened to me.  let us know when you get some new ones loaded and the results.  Good shooting!
