This is why you don't use Reloads in a $2,000 gun
so no radios blaring Rock 'n Roll while you are Reloading????I use about 12.2gr of Titegroup which is not very much in the case so a double throw can happen very easily if you're not careful!! A double throw of this is 25gr's and will easily exceed the guns maximum pressure rating of 60,000psi!!!!
So I Don't like to be interrupted when I reload...... 😉😎😎
🤣🤣 Actually If I don't have any music on I'll kick on a movie to listen to while I'm Playing!! Tinnitus Ya know!! 😉 And Dave I weigh every charge also using a calibrated digital scale, recalibrating every 10 rounds or so.. I've found that with Titegroup the fuller the hopper is, the more consistent it is!!So no radios blaring Rock 'n Roll while you are Reloading????
I never could justify going progressive but I do have a Lyman turret press I use only for tooling pistol brass, I seat primers with a RCBS hand priming tool & do most of the bullet seating in a seperate press. Sure it's fine to mention brand names.This is my first post in this forum. Didn't know it existed until today.
I have a couple of progressive presses that I trust completely. I won't mention names (not sure if that's allowed) but they are both Blue. Been using them for over twenty years and have NEVER had an issue. I am picky about my components however. For the most part I use once fired brass. I reload shot shells until there's a crack in the crimp or other damage somewhere.
Safe shooting and a late Happy New Year!!
Yep, just primers if you could find any are more than 4 cents each. Just plain lead bullets are .08 or more.Thanks John,
Both presses are Dillion. When I first started reloading I could load 9mm for about .04 cents a round and 12 gauge for .10 cents. I would buy powder in 8 lbs kegs, primers in 10k lots, and shot by the half ton. I used to shoot a lot of trap but the price of shot jumped way up. There would be 40 to 50 people at the gun club on trap night. Those days are long past.
Oh well, It was fun while it lasted.
