    Anybody else having problems reloading Hornady XTP-HP for the 7.62 Tok?
    My M57 seems to grab them at the barrel ramp! Luckily it found while cycling them through by hand (firing pin removed) I noticed several were "shorter" when I picked them up. Re measured and sure enough they were. Slow cycle while watching and they hang up @ the barrel ramp enough to hold the action open.
    SO I pulled all bullets, reloaded with a stronger crimp, slightly shorter COL and the same results, except 1 shoved the bullet all the way in - no pulling this one! I've read of people reloading this bullet in the TOK, but now I'm looking at using RN only.
