Scraping sound while seating bullets

Posted 10-16-2012 at 11:51 PM by mroels

I'm seating some .223 68gr hornady match bullets into black hills once fired cases. These have been FL sized, trimmed, chamfered, and deburred. It's making a scraping sound when seating the bullet, I can feel it even. I tried to seat one in a PMC case and no scraping effect. Tried a 69gr Sierra SMK and again scraping in the BHA brass but none in the pmc brass?

On a side note (mind you I'm still a newbie first time using anything but SMK bullets), are the 68grs supposed to be longer than the 69grs? The bullet itself?

Varget due its size will be crushed/compressed by longer bullets making the scraping sound
