Well, into reloading for less than a year and my first mistake. Loaded 47gr of h-4350 instead of 57 and it cost me a fine buck this year!

Just started reloading last year and man do I like it and the results you get from getting your rounds perfect.
I had a brass break on me this year in the press. It really sucked cause it was the last piece I had to resize that night.
It was my buddies dies and so I needed to fix it right??
Wrong
I tried and could not get the brass out for the life of me so then I started drilling ever so carefully into the die. I made it work for a while and got most of the brass out. I then used a drill hit a bit to big and man do I screw the die over.

Moral of the story when a brass gets stuck In the die just put it down and send it into get it fixed!

The worst I've had happen is, I've had a few .303 cases separate on firing.
I loose track of how many times some cases have been reloaded and then I get one that leaves half the case in the chamber.
So far not a big deal to remove, but it makes me uncomfortable thinking about what could happen.

for sure man!
