The gas checks come off easy after running through a 432 Lube/Sizer...should I be concerned?
Thank you very much for the feedback on the bullets. Glad to hear that they function OK.
Gas checks coming off is an annoyance at the loading bench, and possibly a threat to your chronograph. The affect on accuracy is minimal.
Be aware that the check shank is susceptible to "heat shrink" when the mold is too hot. It's a very common problem with heavy bullets, more so with certain alloys. To some extent I try to compensate by making the check shank err on the big side, but I can't cut it too big or else you wouldn't be able to put the checks on.
