Most of my brass is military...Quick clean
Decal and size on press-- 1st run
Decrimp and trim off press
Prime on press - 2nd run
Load - 3rd run
Decap and tumble
Remove crimp (Dillon swager)
Uniform primer pockets (Sinclair International solid carbide Uniforming bits). I feel this pretty well eliminates any chance of a slam-fire. Primers are then .004-.006 below flush. These
tools (small rifle and large rifle) are non-adjustable and should never wear out. I first bought RCBS (adjustable) and stopped using them when they came out of adjustment...
Lube (Dillon spray)
Size. Either RCBS small base size die (.308) Or if .223 or .30/06 I size and trim with Dillon RT-1500/Dillon trim die.
Verify shoulder bump with RCBS Precision mic.
Tumble 15 minutes in corn/Dillon polish
.308 is trimmed, chamfered and de-burred on a Giraud Tri-way.
.223 and .30/06 are chamfered and deburred individually on my drill using RCBS carbide deburring and chamfering tools.
Rifle cases are primed on an RCBS bench tool.
I dump the prepped cases in the 650's case feeder, powder and seat bullets. No crimping.
Drop every one into a case gauge to check
