    I have everything together and just ironing out some calibration issues. They should be resolved in a couple of days, then I can start running production. I am waiting for a few parts for my commercial collators to caliber change to .308 as the Dillon casefeeder is insufferably slow in .308.

    Tolerances look like they will be +/-0.003". If I end up selling a boatload of the brass, I can look at some additional tooling that will bring it into +/-0.002" (the same as my .223) however that is about another $10,000.

    The link to the Lake City brass isn’t working for me.

    I’m still enjoying my last order, but this Lake City brass really piqued my interest.
