    I bought my 550B used and, until now, have only had to switch out primer setups. The other day I had to do a full teardown of the priming parts and have run into a problem. The original spring under the primer cup was rusty so I decided to replace...

    Several years ago, Junior1942, wrote up a procedure for calculating the volume density of powders. I've got it printed out somewhere but don't have time to look for it right now. Also, I think I remember the list that others have mentioned from...

    Strange weather here in West Tennessee. It gets down in the mid 60's at night and we need a blanket. Days it gets up to high 80's to low 90's. I much prefer warm weather, just not the hot weather we know is coming. I can do without the 100 plus...

    Having a good supply of solder, I don't hesitate to add at least 2% tin to every pot. I set the PID at 725 and don't look back. The only wrinkles I get are a few until the mold reaches good casting temp. I'm mostly casting handgun bullets.
