    If you are willing to drive a bit, try Metal Supermarkets 2000 Pewaukee Road Suite M, Waukesha, WI, 53188. They should be able to get it if they don’t have the size you want. Tractor Supply usually has some small pieces in the welding aisle, if...

    Muffle furnace First time I used it I had a block of brass afterward. I put a PID on it after that.

    I haven’t pinned my LEE handles, but I do have tap them back on occasionally. I have to do the same with a set of H&G handles. I’ve got several sets of MP handles. The NOE handles are my preference. RCBS is probably second. The MP handles are...

    Also consider that a good portion of your prospective market are folks who: A) will lose interest in reloading as soon as ammo returns to shelves, or B) will be restricted by primer availability.

    That's unfortunate! I ordered two moulds from MP Monday and had them by Friday. I can't even get stuff from within the US that quick! Some brass that was sent to me left Anderson, SC (196 miles or 3.5 hours away); came to K-town (30 miles from...

    I looked at the Master Pot again tonight and realized I was wrong. It is possible to change the side the operating handle is on.

    I've found that if you use a wrench to actually seat the bushing into the receiver, it doesn't rotate out. However, I don't like having to grab a wrench every time, so a short piece of 12 GA copper wire that hooks on the lower peg of the powder...

    I've got a Magma Master Pot. Its the only pot I've ever owned, so I can't compare it to anything. I'm of the mindset that I'm too poor to own cheap tools. I can't afford to keep replacing them. I also understand that good tools make work easier....

    I used a Forster power trimmer base and a WFT in the chuck on a benchtop drill press for a while. Two issues I ran into were: 1-inconsistent trim lengths due to the expander ball in the sizing die pulling the shoulder longer when the case was...

    Yep. Drop it into an empty magazine and make a mark on the rod with a sharpie and you'll know before it runs out. If you want a 5 primer heads-up and ain't good at spacial relations, put 5 primers in the magazine and draw another line. Repeat for as...

    My first question is, do you like the reloading process? Second is why do you think you want to go progressive? I love the process of reloading! I like it as much as I do shooting. I made the jump to progressive because I am a tool junkie and...

    I also use this method, but measure by the cap on the mineral spirits can. I put two caps full in while the tumbler is running, then add the NuFinish. I let it run a few seconds and then dump the brass in. Also using corn cob media from Grainger. I...
