    May not "have" to be that clean, but I like it that clean.

    Fyr, so do I, but won't go thru all that processing running 20K a year in competition.

    Alam, also be sure to check the amount of bell you put on the brass. It only needs a very small amount, not even .005" on a side, just enough to seat the bullet.

    I had an interesting conversation with a rep at Dillon today. I was reloading and noticed that there were scratches on the inside of the 9mm cases I was reloading. I stopped and looked at the powder funnel that also expands the case mouth.

    I called Dillon tech support and described the problem and he asked a few questions.

    Was I using steel brass? Occasionally, but not on a regular basis.
    Was I using nickel plated brass? I load a lot of range pick up brass and some of it is.
    Did I lube my brass? No, I use carbide dies.
    Do I clean my wet clean my brass with SS pins? Yes.

    He said that since customers have been using SS pins and wet tumbling, they have been getting this complaint more often. He said that the brass is too clean, that there needs to be a minute (sp) amount of lube in the case mouth to prevent scratching.

    He then quoted me the price of a new powder funnel and asked if I'd like to buy one now. I declined for the moment. There are a few more things I want and I might as well get everything in the same order.
