Finally read the FAQs

Finally read the FAQs (3/11)

  1. I bet this has something to do with it. I don’t know what it’s supposed to look like, but the piece down at the bottom of the pusher groove looks worn/broken.
  2. Well, I flipped it and it does seem to work, but I’m still having problems. Also, it’s tilting forward in the track.
  3. Here's what it looks like. https://photos.app.goo.gl/WVZd3wg3F5m3TQyU9
  4. I did. I've been shooting pistol for a while, so I didn't get much out of the first videos. But, I must say it is good to stop and focus a bit on the basics. It's good material. I got to the shotgun vid and had to stop while I waited for my equipment to arrive. I tried doing quad loads on my unmodified M3K and found it to be extremely frustrating, so Saturday morning I got up and removed a lot of material from the loading port. It made all the difference in the world. On Sunday I finally got around to mounting my Invictus 12 round shell caddy to my belt. Previously I was picking up the stacked dummy rounds from a table, but grabbing them from the shell caddy also makes a huge difference. I need a lot of practice, but at least I know I'll to figure out the quad loads. Before I hacked out my loading port I didn't think I'd ever me able to get it. Long story short, I haven't spent enough time on the training videos. I'm also getting my rifle reloading system up and running, so that's taking a lot of time as well. I'll get back on it soon. I have found a lot of great resources on YouTube as well. Here's a photo of my gun smithery...
  5. Awesome! Man, they’re waaaay behind on their shipping. I tried contacting them by email and on their website again today, so maybe I’ll get a reply. I’ve been using them since the last ammogedon. I’m sure they’ll get it figured out. I just want to make sure I’m still n the list.
  6. I have a Mr Bullet Feeder, so during the primer/powder/bullet cycle it was recommended to use he Lyman M neck expander in station 1. This flares the mouth of he case out to accept the bullet. With 9MM the Mr Bullet Feeder kit comes with a powder drop that expands the mouth of the case, but not with the 223 setup. I know that one use a die in station one that does expand the neck all the way down but I’m not all that familiar with that. I’m about to reload, so maybe I’ll upload another video.
  7. Anyone heard from Bayou Bullets lately? I placed an order almost 4 months ago and haven't heard from them. They didn't reply to the message I sent in their contact system and their phone has a busy signal. I only tried once, so I'll defiantly try again. They're probably just swamped, but I thought I'd ask. Thanks
  8. I'm sizing with the Dillon sizing/decapping die in station one and then trimming in station 4. Contrary to the Dillon's instructions, Lyman says to size before their trim die. I just ran about 1500 cases through it last night and everything seems to be working just fine. I probably won't touch anything till I get the Dillon (Carbide) die. https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipMN1QZPGxGMTV2S85cATMez80HxUBNGCxN4kxSwnazhC9NcYaixlJtkHxkIeXmE6g?key=VkFTVm55SEJ6R2FlZ2VPY3ZXQy1LX01zQ3F1MzZn
  9. I ordered mine on May 1st.... that's almost 12 weeks. Don't seem right. Was yours for 223? On a side note, the Dillon die says not to size the case before the trimmer die. The trimmer die does the sizing, and the tight fit is needed to prevent case spin. Only the decapping die is needed in in station one. The instructions with the Lyman trim die says that you do need to resize before the trim die. Also, when I install the RT1500 on the Lyman die almost none of the case mouth sticks out the top. If I adjust the trimer die down enough to get a reasonable amount of clearance for the cutter the case gets stuck. I ended up having to adjust the die so almost no case sticks out the top, then I had to bring the cutter down until it's just kissing the top of the die. I don't think this is the way it's supposed to be setup, but it does work. Hopefully the Dillon die will resolve this issue.
  10. Thanks for the feedback. I’m thinking of getting some small plates for live fire practice as well (I say “practice”, I just love to shoot). Seems like hitting these small targets is a big thing.
