Apparently a while back I must have not resized some new 10mm brass I bought. Got a new Wilson case gauge and started putting some of my loads through it. All once fired we're golden. Then I hit a batch that seemed bulged. All same headstamp of new bag of Jeagemann brass. Nor resizing only thing I can think of and truly can't recall doing it. Is there a safe way to resize primed brass after I pull the bullets and powder ? Thanks for any scoop

Take your decapper out of your die and get after it.

That's what I was thinking but didn't want to make any (more) dumb mistakes.

Thanks

I wear eye protection and ear plugs when I do this. I also tell my wife that a bang isn't an accident. Knock on wood, I've never had a primer ignite when resizing.

That is good to know. I purchased some 308 150gr spitzer that feels like you need a press to put in chamber. Thought I'd pull apart, ck powder wt. then resize without decapper pin.

Put on your safety gear......welding gloves, reflective safety vest, and hard hat.
