    I'll have to try that - I always leave the half nut engaged and stop with VFD. Makes it easy to always get tool back in exact spot. Also can clean up threads by using the compound to slowly adjust tool point to exact center of thread with half nut...

    JD, the deal sounds pretty good for both parties. Isn't it amazing how clear something can be when you write it, but other folks get the wrong msg? I think all of us got the wrong msg on first reading, but after you made your follow up post I went...

    Thanks for the info - .050" to 1/8" range is what I'm reading. I've always been careful with BP in cartridges to have not space, and prefer at least a slightly compressed charge. If I want a light load, I'll put a filler, and darn it I can't...

    Thanks for the post John - your Allient 300-MP is a smokeless powder. I was thinking more along the lines of the Black Powder used and how much air space was allowed there. I remember from muzzle loading it was always impressed to be sure there...
