    I use a Forester micrometer head bullet seating die, it works very well. My complaint would be in handling the small .22 cal bullets their small round shape makes them rather fiddly to pick up and place into/on the case mouth. With that in mind if...

    What does Cream of Tartar do in these recipes for tumble cleaning? I found Dawn make too such suds. Suds so strong they will support the weight of some of the SS pins so float out in/on the suds. I switched to "Cascada" dish washing machine...

    Persil Laundry detergent really stinks, to me it smells like Raid insect killer and the strong stench persist for weeks in the cloths. Pity the fool that washes his hunting cloth in Persil. I read lots of post saying to use a small squirt of...

    Add a shot of Hornady One Shot ultra sonic cleaner (at 40:1 water:cleaner) into the tumbler to re-enforce the cleaning action. The cases will need less time in the tumbler and come out cleaner shiner outside and inside and the pins too. I have a...
