    In reloading 9mm, I understand one just wants to straighten the bell mouth even with the rest of the case because if there is too much crimp pressure problems start to develope.

    Good shooting,

    I actually use a bit of bell at the mouth, the .355 diameter is for the full case length, but with a bit of bell it is easier to set the bullet onto the case mouth and seat it.

    You are using Carbide dies ?

    Do you use a separate seater/re-sizer die ?

    Otintx, One definately has to bell the mouth to get the bullet seated to avoid shaving it yes, I use carbide dies and I do all stages of reloading one step at at time. Yes, it does take more effort but I am retired and it helps me pass the time. I appreciate exchanging thoughts with y'all because one can never know too much when it comes to reloading.

    Good shooting,

    Mike

    I've read the the minimum case mouth bell on a 9mm the better, less stress on the case side etc ..., but, I have a hard time getting the bullet to sit/seat properly unless it has enough bell to initially sit up there by itself ...

    And for the record, I have seater/resizer dies, but prefer using the separate dies myself.

    I have found that I can get away with one step seating/resizing with 9mm, (I use a Carbide LEE die for that), but for .45 I prefer using separate dies, (which are Carbide RCBS dies).

    I use Lee dies exclusively. I have never had an issue with set back or any other OAL related problems. Expand the case and seat the bullet to the right lenght and all is well. I don't shoot bullseye so my results are more than acceptable.
    Don't retreat! Reload!!!
