Hi,

I am going through my XM-193 rounds one-by-one and separating them into categories of quality of bullets, 'bullet set', sealer, and case quality.

It appears most rounds have a millimeter or so of the bullet cannelure exposed. Is this the ideal set of the bullet? I have a high number of rounds that also have the cannelure completely hidden by the case. Are these bullets pushed too far into the case?

What is the proper depth the bullet should be in the case (for XM-193)?

Thanks,

AE

When I seat them, I want the neck just at the forward edge, so you can barely see the cannelure about the rim of the neck.

However - given that new brass is not always very consistent in length - what you see is common, and nothing to be concerned with.

I had to use needle nose on the case rim, and vice grips on the bullet in order to pull it just so the cannelure was exposed.
