I am currently reloading .223 on a Lee 4 hole turret. I have sized/decapped about 150'ish rounds. I have a few questions about both using tools and some genreal questions.


1. When using the Lee case pilot + 1/4 chuck how far into the case does the guide need to be? All the way through the primer hole? It would seem that using the chuck makes it almost impossible to put the guide all the way through the primer hole.



2. Upon measuring some of my cases they are SHORTER than the Saami. The SAAMI calls for 1.766. I have found many that are 1.765 to 1.760. Is it ok to load these or are they defective in some way?

1) go through the primer hole with the case trimmer.

2) SAAMI is a max length.

Many thanks. I love this forum. Good place for me to come ask silly newbie questions.

The only silly/stupid question is one that's not asked that gets someone seriously injured or killed.

I love this forum too.

If the rest of the world was as willing to share knowledge, the world would a whole lot better & safer place to be.
