Yes, I'll watch for that closely. My lowest loading is less than a grain from the maximum loading. 5.4gr vs 6.1 (6.7 with FMJ, so figuring -10%) so I don't expect to see any squib loads, but I will of course look out for them. I visually inspected each charge, and weighed every 10th charge, and none varied more than .1gr
Regardless, I will be careful.

Well the lowest loadings of the .40 cycled the Sig fine. I ended up settling on the middle loading which seems to be plenty, I probably put 100 or so through the sig without a single failure. Likewise, the AR ammo worked awesome. I think I am going to need a progressive press, but I'll probably stick with the single stage for some things, and for now.
Also, I have been decapping in a universal die prior to tumbling, should I bother doing this or save myself the extra step and just do it when I size the brass?

I de-cap only if using wet SS tumbler. The ss doesn't miss much crud at all. I have a 30-06 die that I de-cap my 5.56 and similar diameters with but for 45acp I will need a new setup as I don't want to size prior to loading on the LnL.Licensed Journeyman.

I have the universal decapper and have been using it before tumbling. With the single stage, however, the extra step is less than welcome.

Thinking of ordering the LNL right now, what books should I order to along with it?
Going to try and make that 6/9 class.Nemo Me Impune Lacesset
