ALSO - just didit for Brand New EA brass in my 5.7x28 mm FN FsN Pistol. Setup "STP Oil Treatment" (yer Favorite Case Lube will b...

Re: FsN Botched Reassembly

GONRA's pretty sure you hava "Non Problem" here. (Sounds strangely familiar...)
Based on MY stupid takedown / reassembly / shootin' my Crummy Handload Adventures,
I'd say The FsN pistol is TOUGH!

Re: Anyone own a MagnetoSpeed and try it with your 5.7?

GONRA is placing all my bets on www.mylabradar.com .
Have one but need LOTTSA shootin' / testin' experience
before reporting any results to you persnickety guys.
Initial crude tests (couple years ago) were Just Fine.

Re: First Outing With My Five Seven MKII

GONRA wonders - in the future, see if you can check yer MT's for Punctured Primers.
Those little blown out brass discs are where the firing pin channel debris comes from.
Maybe you have all the fired brass to date and can figger it out?
May even see a few of the little guys in yer pistol?

Re: Lee sizer die 5.7x28

GONRA hadan RCBS Email exchange today (9mm Steyr dies) - got this sad RCBS reply:

"I am very sorry to inform you that we no longer offer Custom Dies.
The Custom Die department was closed in June,
and we can no longer make dies to specific dimensions, or to cases . "

Re: Lee sizer die 5.7x28

GONRA sez geta RCBS SMALL BASE die set, RCBS #45 shell holder,
line it all up to any rotational "sweet spot" in yer particluar press,
(make it a Nice Robust Press, even it looks like "overkill"- to mantain headpace)
use STP Oil Treatment for a sizing lube.
All problems will go away....

Re: Forum Input for Suppressors

Based on yer "7 month" info, GONRA's expecting Gemtech around May.
Interested in your handload! What brass & primer did you use?

Intention was to use the ORIGINAL EA brass - "drastically reduced case capacity"
but am accumlating data needed to blast away when it arrries.
THANX!

Re: Dillon 650 reloading

GONRA's experience is that you're best served to "resize 5.7 brass" on a large robust single stage press to get consistant headspace. Fired 5.7 cases can/will hava a "body bulge" that is really different from the usual reloading we all are used to. RCBS SMALL BASE dies verk great for me.
