    Loaded 10 rounds of these. Had some feeding issues with the new upper, but it and these shot great. Now to fix the feeding issue.

    This question will betray my ignorance so please excuse the dumb question but why aren't those seated to the cannelure?

    Cannelures are just there for suggestion based on what cartridge is most likely going to be loaded with that bullet and what length is most commonly used. Sometimes you'll see bullets with 2 cannelures on them. I had some 147gr HSTs that had 2.

    That said, it does seem like those aren't seated very deep. That or those are some LONG bullets! I'm guessing thats a 458 socom?

    When loading you use the OAL numbers for that caliber. That bullet is seated to its proper OAL. The bullet was designed for a 45-70. But when you load to the 458 SOCOM OAL, its not close to the cannelure.

    rp is spot on.

    And they are not very deep. Its a bit of a chore to get them straight on the new brass. I tried to ream them, but it wasn't enough. Fortunately I only did 10. I will ream the other cases a bit more. In fact, on the new brass that is not primed, I think I will lube them and run them through the powder through expanding die to open the mouth up a little.

    Got it. I didn't realize the cannelures weren't for .458 SOCOM. Thanks for taking the time to explain.

    Hazza! Heard my wife say this once. Might have been a dream though.

    I picked up a Lyman m-die for all the hornady vmax and amax bullets I have. I just recently set it up and it's a nifty little gizmo! Maybe try one of those?
