Here you go:

I've noted some of the "Remington" cases are a little sloppy around the rim, Grafs too. :evil: There are several shellholders just a little larger that work just as well. Look up the SAAMI case dimensions PDF file to make a choice. The dimensional data is important for reloaders to have anyway.... :ugeek:

Thanks Phyrbird

I checked all my loading die boxes that didn't have holders marked on them and found an RCBS#19 in a 35 Win SL that worked. I have three other RCBS 19's that don't

Suggest you connect w/ RCBS, if they are like many other manufacturers in our chosen hobby they may take dramatic warranty action. I've had Ruger do considerable work on one of my babies, they charged Nada for parts & fitting of a cylinder. I only was out shipping for purloined parts. Weaver has offered refurbishment on some of their older K series scopes for ridiculous fee. Franklin Arsenal did not just replace a broken part they sent the whole unit new.
The mis-fitting holders could be replaced for free. You may have to send them a case & the holders, but, hey, if their stuff is out of spec they do make good....
