Did up a few more of the above loads, as I popped off a few rounds on steel and ice-filled jugs today.
I am about out of small rifle primers, so the R-P brass will have to be set aside in storage. Don't have a clue when primer prices will come back to earth. I'll keep out of the market for now (just shoot what I've got loaded up already).
I am not eager to swap, but if anyone is desperate for Large Pistol primers or some CCI #34 primers, I'd be willing to swap, but here's the deal killer: you'll have to come to me.
North Stonington (shoot a bit while here).

I loaded up a batch of some warm 125 gr .357 magnum loads since I haven't loaded in months due to different responsibilities. Oddly some of them were not as easy to chamber even though all of them were properly resized and crimped with a Lee FCD post bullet seating.

You often have variations in case wall thickness and bullet diameters (even in the same batch). You could also check your cylinder diameters with a ball gauge, I suppose. Minus a gauge, you could take one round that binds and try it in each chamber.

I figured, as all of the cases plopped into the case gauge no problem but as soon as a bullet was insert and crimped then some fit tighter than others. They should all fit fine they just won't load as smooth as the .38 SPL cast loads I churn out of my Dillon.

Pulled some .303 tracer rounds and then replaced them with the Speer 180gr .311" Round Nose over 38.5 grains of IMR 4320.

These 100 grainers run just fine in the SKS. 4.9ยข each at AR.
Loaded and test-fired in the past half-hour:

Kind of raw and dreary outside, so I figured it was time to reload some of the empties made last week. Another 60 or so to go, but it's a start...
