Hi all. I have been reloading for a couple of decades now, and make .223, 7.62 (30 cal), 38, 44, 45, and 50(muzzleloader) Using cast lead. I have all Lee dies. For some reason, I am having a problem with my cast 9 mm working in either my Glocks or my AR-nine. I believe the die I am using produces a bullet that is 132 grains, but I do not know that off the top of my head. It is a conical bullet, six-cavity. It is designed for a 9 mm, however. It is not a 38. What I am noticing, even after these bullets are sized using a Lee Sizer, and Lubed using liquid aloe, I am getting an etching in the lead bullet parallel (lengthwise) to the case. They just will not feed. Any ideas? They all mic fine and easily drop into the barrels of the Glocks and AR-nine when they are removed. I thought of polishing the feed ramps, but I don’t think since this is a lengthwise indentation I am getting in the lead, that this will solve my problem. I would assume that would be if it were perpendicular, more like smile in the lead. Any thoughts would be helpful. The same exact bullet recipe works perfectly fine in all firearms when I use a jacketed bullet instead of the lead that I make. Thank you!
