    Bzcraig replied to a thread scale accuracy in Reloading Equipment
    A lot of good info in this thread. I had a Lee scale that I gave away fairly quickly, not because of accuracy, but becauseq as mentioned above the dampening magnets were too weak. You can purchase a good Lyman, Ohaus, RCBS, etc and if you want...

    I am sitting on a 25 lb box of 9mm range brass. Paid essentially scrap price for it. I have loaded maybe 300 rounds out of that box. Can hardly tell I have been in it. I have seen no issues. But I do go over them pretty carefully by eye in the...

    I have one of those little single board computers, Azulle 160$ at Amazon. Comes with Win 10 on it. Setup was a snap, it has 2 USB ports, a 2 and a 3, plus a lan port. Which I like because it can run on my home lan instead of tieing up wireless. ...

    I have a cheap digital scale. I was having a good time with it. Went to work one day to load 50 rounds of 7.62x54r. Moderate load of IMR 4895. Case at start was maybe 3/4 full. I was hand weighing each charge. On about case number 38 the...

    Speed. Cast bullets at a slower speed, ie 1200- to I don't know, 1800 maybe 2k. Depends on a lot of variables. Too hard is not always good with speed. I saw a crow get "exploded" once by a .243 shooting a Hornady 60 gr boat tailed hollow...

    I normally run 50 % range scrap and 50% Clip on Wheel weight with an added 1% of tin for higher speed/pressure rounds like rifle bullets. Fit is king. Get the fit right first. But I would consider adding some wheel weight to your pure. Possibly...

    I think some are much more "aware" than others. I don't think an oyster has eyes, does it? What does it know? On the other hand I had the pleasure of living with a Parakeet named "zeke" for almost a decade. He spent a lot of time sitting on my...
