    Hi...it's me again :)

    I just started to wonder that does that LCI mark have any effect to realoading those cartridges? More FTE's?

    Hiya *Cracker :)

    Not with my 357 SIG brass, either and I've rolled my own since I was able to get enough brass. <shrug> No problems to date. I am in the habbit of tossin' 'em after I have used them 5 times, unless there is any noticeable damage earlier. So, that covers the 357 SIG, 40 SW and the 9MM. Good luck with your reloads and be safe. 8)

    I don't have FTEs anymore, with either factory ammo or my handloads. :) Even the hot factory ammo doesn't mess up the rim enough to matter.

    revchuck: Great news.
    How many rounds of breakin did it take for the FTEs to go away?
    Did you change/modify any parts?

    Dang, how did I miss this? :oops:

    I added a 1911 slide stop plunger spring to the extractor spring, cut even with the top of the extractor spring. That was it. The new extractor spring might do the same thing.
