So... I just started reloading, got everything set up today, did my first batch of 30-30. Or tried to, rather. Got my cases all trimmed, primed, and powdered. Started putting in the bullets and realized the COL was way off when I seated in the crimp groove. Some of the higher grain rounds (that were below the maximum safe load, I wasn't overfilling) wouldn't even allow me to seat the bullet low enough to hit COL if I were to ignore the crimp groove, due to the bullet bottoming out in the powder. So, I started looking around for info why, and I found out that there are actually two .308 FTX rounds. One of which is specifically for 30-30 and the other for .308 Marlin Express. Want to take a guess which I got? So, I come asking two questions, mainly: For starters, I have no bullet puller yet, waiting on one to come in. That means I have to manually pull them somehow, and I will have to resize the necks. Does anyone know if I can take out the depriming pin on the neck resizing die from a Lee Deluxe kit and have it still work? Or would I have to deprime them all and do it with the depriming rod still in? Secondly... anyone here interested in trading a box of 30-30 FTX (or any 30-30 of comparable quality) for .308 FTX? I won't lie, I am pretty disheartened. I was planning on going out and testing loads tomorrow, and instead I get to wait another week for more rounds to come in, since NO one in my area seems to sell reloading supplies off the shelf.
