What's your reloading failure rate?
Rance - SASS # 54090 replied to Nostrum Damus SASS #110702's topic in SASS WireBeen loading on a 550 for 18 years.. kinda like Cypress Sam.. maybe 2 out of 5,000?? few enough that I don’t pay much attention to it.. I do check for split cases and separate all my cases right after cleaning..

73 winchester problem
Rance - SASS # 54090 replied to Currahee's topic in SASS WireI had this problem years ago when I was shooting a 66 yellowboy.. I had been backing off the hammer spring tension to make it easier levering and I started jacking out live rounds.. An experienced shooter said I might be out running the hammer fall.. I tightened my hammer spring back up and the problem was gone.. Rance Just sayin’ oh.. and I ain’t a gunsmith..
Muggins.. sorry I just reread yer post.. All my 38 specials reloads have been shot through.. a tuned up Uberti 1866 yellowboy and a super stroked Uberti 1873 Delux.. I have shot Winchester small pistol primers for about 10 years and then switched to some Federal primers mixed in with the Winchester’s.. just sayin.. no misfires.. Rance
I’ve been reloading cowboy ammo in 38 special cases since 2004.. I clean it in a vibrating tumbler with half corncob and half walnut media.. I ain’t never cleaned a primer pocket yet.. I reload on a Dillon 550B.. No misfires yet just sayin
