Hi everyone. I have some new hulls on the way and was wondering what everyone does for their crimp starter. Will the standard crimp starter get the job done? I am hoping to avoid using my MEC with the BP super Crown Crimp starter for the initial load.

I'm guessing the standard crimp starter will work fine. I use new hulls on my Spolar with standard (plastic) crimp starter and it works great.

I made a impulsive buy and bought some primed hulls fro American Reloading. I know I will have to cull a large amount, but for less than the price of primers I couldn't resist

These are the hulls I'm loading as well (bought them awhile back when there was no need to cull hulls). These Rio hulls with CB6100-12 and Vectan AS makes an EXCELLENT shell!

That's good news beetle. From my preliminary research, the base wad is both tall and not radiused. Have you had any issues with powder level and clearance issues reguarding basewad and wad?

I am contemplating either Cb6100, PT1205 or if I can find some data CB2100 (I have a case of these laying around)

I haven't had any issues with powder level because I'm primarily using Vectan AS or A24 powders, both of which are fairly bulky.

For Vectan AS there is load data for Federal components (209A primer, 12s0). this would be good data to use for Rio primer with CB2100.

I'm using 18.3g of Vectan AS, 1 oz load, CB6100, new hull from American Reloading (rio primer and hull). It should be about 1800 fps. Great shell for me -- have won several local competitions with this load.

Thanks again beetle. I'll have clays, IMr red and titewad. I believe the only suitable powder I have is clays.

On a side note, I have heard (everything I hear in internet I take with a lb of salt) that the cb6100 and cb2100 have similar or same load data. I'll look into this, but I was just wondering if you have any any experience with loading both these wads.

I've loaded CB6100 and CB2100 with similar data. As long as you are not near the top of the pressure limits you should be good.
