BigDave Posted March 9, 2004 Share Posted March 9, 2004 I picked up a couple of cans of compressed air, the kind that you use around computers for dusting and such, to use on my laptops and stereo equipment. Well, one of the cans found its way into my press room. Unfortunately, the shellplate on my 650 becomes quite dirty with media, brass shavings and spilled powder, which left unchecked, can literally be the wrench in the gears of a good loading session. I don't think it is any secret around here that the more consistent your press runs, the more consistent and high-quality ammo that is produced. Anyway, with the little red straw they give you with the cans, I gently blow the residue off the shellplate area and the casefeed ramp about every 75-100 rounds. The best is to do this when the ram is fully raised. I find this protects the uncovered powder in station 3 (at least on my press) from accidentally getting blow all over the place if I get wreckless. Keeps my press nice and clean.
