Possible Issues-Flaring

We thought we will use this area to add issues our shooters have found and try and create a single place where you can have a troubleshooting look.


When shooting lead bullets it is extremely in portent to flair your casing , if not you run the risk of scraping off the coating or even worse scraping off lead that will make it impossible to load the ammunition. Some shooters report the need to flair very little while others flair a hell of a lot , this is mostly due to the fact that not all 9mm have the same chamber dimensions , and if you have more then one 9mm you might have notices what seats well in one sometimes does not even seat in the other.

When flaring is done wrong it comes out like this , and it is quite common for new re loaders to experience this

Lead swished on the side of the casing

As you can clearly see this is not ideal and is easily remedied by flaring the first 0.5mm of the casing , personally I use my Dillon’s powder dispenser to accomplish this as my auto bullet seater needs a little flaring to not let the bullet drop out.
