    Cold weather power factor calculations

    I have in my notes W231 is very temp. sensitive. Unfortunately I didn’t record anything else. Wait for someone to chime in with hard data. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Powder for pistol and PCC

    I have had issues in the past where TG “cakes” up causing inconsistencies. I was told it was because I left the powder in the hopper. I load in the garage so there are temp fluctuations. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

  5. RE: Too many nose down Bullets I picked up a few K of these bullets I can’t seem to adjust the bullet feeder to get reliable nose up. They are very slick and have a bevel base. Curious if anyone has good experience with this bullet? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    1050 or another 650

    “Rebuilding the press” (To switch priming system) That was harsh 30 mins max. I load usually a stash of ammo before switching the priming system. By that time, it is time to clean the priming slide area anyway. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Electric Vest and Half Gloves for Reloading

    Get a parabolic electric heater. They sell them at Costco. They focus the heat wonderfully. You point it at you at you get toasty quick. Perfect for your application. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. Have a LNL with casefeeder Save yourself a big headache if you plan on using Hornady casefeeder parts to drop and insert brass. Sell the LNL it is a good press. But the bottom of the casefeeder blows chunks I M O Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    PCC Recommendations

    My vote Nordic Components AR9 It also has interchangeable mag. assemblies. I paid $1250 The trigger is a polished milspec. I put in a 3.5lb. CMG Trigger for under $100 that breaks at 3lbs. Like glass. The Gun runs everything, wonderful machining. You would be very happy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Fair valuation on once-fired range pickup brass?

    For a fast sale take it to a recycler. No headache dealing with selling it. Local recycler pays $1.83 a pound. If you clean it and find a buyer for all the calibers you are talking more than one buyer (hassle), in theory you can make 40%-60% more. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Can't Make Ammo Fast Enough!

    A bullet feed is a big speed increase for a 650 or 1050 just guessing but I would say 25%. It allowed me to run at a faster rhythm before I went Ammobot Rev3 I bought two 1050’s locally for $1500 would get another if I could score one for 1200-1400

    Hardness for 124gr cast/coated bullets???

    With coated bullets that hardness formula is toast. 10-12 BHN works fine at that PF Tote group is the worst powder for coated Bullets. Clays can be dangerous for inexperienced reloaders, especially heavy Bullets. Enjoy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    New 1050 in the house

    You didn’t ask and I know better usually (it is happy hour). Remove that ratchet. I also add a few washers to that stud to extend it a tad for the primer slide. Unless you are a newbie to reloading and are still uncomfortable with it. IMO it is there because of Ralph Nader. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
