I am a newbie and i try to read a lot about stuff i don't know before messing with it.
I have seen the term "Bullet Run-Out" and i have a little understanding about it.
Could any of you try and explain that term/condition to me?


Thanks again in advance to all of you. Always great people here!

In an oversimplified explanation the way I understand it. If you roll a loaded cartridge on a flat surface and watch the tip of the bullet, it will wobble with runout. Like I said that is very simplified. Actual measurement is done much more precise.

Basically, it means the bullet is sitting cross-eyed to some amount. If you can actually see it while rolling a cartridge, it's massive.

Someone on this forum suggested rolling the round on a mirror, which helps the eye more easily detect wobble.
I tried the idea and like it very much.
