    So, do you know a way an individual can send primers or powder without having a hazmat license? It appeared you were countering joeG52's statement of fact.

    I’m new enough to this PC stuff to not fully understand the need to PC buckshot, other than we can. It’s certainly not typically going to be leading up a barrel when inside a wad. I must say, it’s purty stuff though.

    Now, why didn't I think of that. I'm assuming the straw goes all the way up to the base of the shell holder. Maybe even one of those bendy straws. I'm headed down there now. Thanks

    That would not work on the breechlock press. Dunno why they primer relief cut is different, but that short rubber tube would not stop the primers from falling out on mine. See video at 3:11, and you can see how long the cut is in the ram. ...

    I ordered a small primer arm just for the heck of it, for a back up should my epoxy job fail. If you looked at any of those pics or videos of samples, all were very short slots. My slots on the ram goes almost to the bottom of the ram on the...

    I see now. Went to the ever helpful youtube. Did not realize it also deflected the spent primer. I just normally don't prime on the press, so never got that part out. Thanks again guys.

    I don’t prime on this press, I use a Frankford Arsenal hand primer. Soooo, guess I’ll type “primer arm” in Midway or Brownells Monday and get this coming. Surprised it didn’t come with the press. Thanks

    I've had a Lee Classic Cast breech lock press for a while. Got it on one of Lee's close out deals, just too good to pass up. Dang thing is as sturdy as any Rockchucker I've ever seen. It has the "primer drop through the ram" feature, but I think...

    I accumulated a Lee turret press in a box of goodies, with the three support rods oxidized. I just removed them, buffed them down smoothe with some emery cloth, and applied some cold blue. Don't look too bad. Of course, finished with a good coat...

    I just had an MRI this summer, I’ve had both hips replaced, lots of metal. I guess they must have turned the power down. But they did tell me I may feel some warmth developing around the joints, and I did. Kinda strange feeling.

    It's bit confusing fo shizzle, but from LEE's site, it appears to be two piece. I ordered it from Titan, where it looks like it all come as one piece, or at least all put together for ya. I assumed one got this and added it to his existing slider...

    What's that old saying about the 8 degrees of separation. Read this story to the wife sitting here this evening. She said, how ironic about the McNutt name, there are some McNutts on her maternal side of the family from back that way. Hinky heh

    I've always used the slider boxes primers come in. About the same as a cereal box I suppose. But, us old people don't each much cereal, just get it when the grandkids come.

    I'ma gonna guess that you chamfered them to a slight bevel edge, and the case mouth headspacing of your pistol prolly just made that edge a bit flatter.

    Me thinks I found it. dsltech had it right, that was the part, it is an add-on piece. The pic I included, and congrats to me, the first time I posted a pic and it didn't come out sideways, appeared to be a one piece. Could this maybe be a laser...
