Mistaken crimp

:eek:

I use a Lee die set for my 35 whelen. It's one of those with auto crimping, and the way to avoid a crimp is to back the die up a half turn during set up. I mistakenly set the die to deep and put a crimp in the first round.

I tried to pull the bullet with my press mounted puller but my bench is a portable set up on a workmate table and isn't sturdy nor heavy enough for the job.

My question is; since this is a min chg of 60 gr BL-C(2) behind a 200 gr hornady sp, will it hurt anything to just discharge it? Will it even chamber?

Since you did this to only one round, just dispose of it if you have any suspicion that it might cause problems or be dangerous. It cost you pennies, the weapon cost you $100s, your body parts are priceless.

or roll it with rod.then pull it.
