Post by: Morax on January 06, 2007, 09:20:59 PM
well I was feeling good for once today and was a little borred, so i went into the garage and took at look at the reload press.. well next thing i know i am sitting there and am reloadin away.. I musta been possessed or blacked out or something cause i ended up reloading everything i could get my hands on... I guess I gotta do a gun shop run tomarrow for more suppies...

awww all warm and fuzzy here  ^-^   no i didnt double none up, but now that you say that, do you check every load? every couple ?  i loaded up a lil over 200 rounds of pistol yesterday and i would say i checked every fourth or fifth powder dump to be sure.. thats one thing i like about the single stage, I have all the rounds sized and powdered so i can visually check powder levels before the lead goes on..

Personally, I load them all with powder, checking every 4 or 5 for deviations. Once I've done 50, I glance over them to make sure I haven't double charged one. I have a Lee turret press, but use it as a single stage with the exception that I don't have to change dies, I just rotate the die turret. Works great for me. O0

yeah thats what i was looking at doing also, i am not too keen on the idea of it dropping the powder and seating the bullet without me looking.. one less thing to worry over

Reloading is about the only thing I can do to keep me out of the Looney Bin. :D Since I don't load pistol except 44 Rem Mag which gets filled up anyway to almost the top and do not use a powder measure but weigh every load I don't get doubles.

I call her well it starts with a C and ends with a T!  At least that's one of the names I use to her face.  She's in and out of jail she has her own personal cell.  She's been in for every thing from check fraude to selling drugs.

 I do admit to the occasional case not having a primer in it before I pour in the powder, the other thing that I have done is taking the funnel off a case before all the powder is gone thru, that gets messy and not a good idea if you use candle light on your loading bench.

I did this once, i took it as "assumed" the primer tool did its job, and it missed picking one up, so i tossed the powder into it, and as i transfered it from the block to the press i left a line, wtf- oh duh no primer..  now when i prime them i flip every one and double check the double check..   hey do you who reload do it according to weather, as in you dont when it is humid or extra hot outside??

Where I work they make 120mm tank ammo as well as other munitions for the military. Everywhere they load they control the humidity. Moisture content and control is very critical and regular scheduled tests are conducted to check the moisture content.
