Using an aftermarket barrel, such as a Barsto or KKM, the Dillon will not size down far enough to ensure 100% of the rounds will chamber. Regardless of correctly installing the die, i.e., touching the plate. Some rounds will pass the case gauge but will stick when you chamber check.
Lee decapping sizing die
EGW Lee undersize decapping sizing die
Hornady decapper sizing die
All three of the above will remove the Glock bulge ensuring 100% will chamber.
All three make the press more difficult to operate-you are really "working" the brass.
The Dillon decapper sizing die does not make the press more difficult to operating.
The carbide sizing ring on the Lee Factory Crimp die removes the Glock bulge ensuring 100% will chamber.
Using FMJ bullets, you need a minimum if any bell to seat the bullet.
Adjusting the Lee FCD to just "kiss" the case rim will allow the carbide sizing die to remove the bulge without "resizing" the round skewing the bullet in relation to the case.
The diameter of the Lee FCD carbide sizing ring is larger that the Lee undersize die and the extra sizing by the Lee undersize die is not needed-overworks the brass.
Reality-9mm brass fired through a Glock barrel may have expanded and not chamber in a Barsto or KKM barrel.
Yes, it would be better to buy new brass (or once-fired not through a Glock) and use this brass-but not practical for some.
The Lee FCD is THE solution. It does not over work the brass. Set up as above it just "kisses" the bulge away.
I am weak and lazy. I want the press to operate with as little resistance as possible. I want to load as many rounds as I can as fast as I can. I want all rounds to chamber. I want to use the brass as many times as I can (I don't want to overwork the brass). I want an acceptable level of accuracy. I want Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi to .......have a nice day.
Anyone find the same results as listed above. Should Lee receive the Nobel Peace Prize for his Lee FCD?
Yes, I am an internet troll and I will now slither off to my home under the freeway overpass.
