    If you can't get one here, they have them on eBay. Just search for MEC priming assembly. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk

    CP, my post wasn't "directed" at all, as such, it was just my puzzlement about what might have caused the primer to go off. I doubt that the press being a Dillon had anything directly to do with your event but you did make that mention up front. ...

    You are quite correct and neither of us has suggested otherwise.

    I've fired and reloaded a lot of surplus 7.62, .45 ACP, 9MM and .30-06 cases for a long time and have never needed a SB die; I can't see how a 5.56 case could possibly be more difficult. A good sizing lube properly applied to the lower case and...

    Ditto. I've slowly crushed primers into a small flat mass in a 70 pound shop vise; I crushed them side to side and top to bottom but with no fireworks. And I've de-capped quite a few live GI pull-downs with Lee's tuff Universal Decapper Die with...

    Seems that 30 years and $15 million of examination by our legal system illustrates that we know the system is flawed (there is no way for any system to be perfect is there?) AND that we know it's imperfect AND that we are trying really hard to...

    Christianity is not a philosophy nor a topic for playing troll head games. The "god" you listen to is not the God of the Bible.

    Relax and stand by guys, we know God has a plan to deal with evil. In fact, He's had the outline written out for us in scripture so we can know his plan and rejoice when we see it being fulfilled without losing heart. No matter how important...

    A short essay in precision reloading logic: First, understand that accuracy doesn't come in a box. Everyone's "favorite" die brand is simply the one that gives him the best accuracy he ever got from his most accurate rifle. Bad thing about...

    1hole replied to a thread Cleaning old brass in Cast Boolits
    There's a significant difference between clean and shined cases. One is needed, the other is purely cosmetic. New cases have a matt finish, they're never glittery. I prefer to make my cases truly look new so I don't add metal polish to my...

    Go back to your first ideas, glass isn't the answer to everything. I have old eyes and there's no doubt I'd put a peep on a handgun rifle if I had one. And I'd immediately remove any small hole screw-in target aperture disc and use the whole...

    Some minor features change between dies but that's more of a user preference than an effective difference; you may like what I don't like but the question is, do the dies work well? Fact is, used correctly, ALL dies work very well and their cost is...

    There's nothing wrong with your opinion, after all it is your opinion and that's all you honestly claim it to be. BUT, if we measure reloading tools, perhaps especially dies, by how they perform rather than by how pretty they are or how slick they...

    Smelting means using heat to extract metal from ore; we don't do that. For some reason many of today's cast bullet shooters (wrongly) call the melting of stray bits of lead based alloys in a pot "smelting". Are Lee's simple melting pots the...

    Ah, Tanker, you make a good argument but he's a "liberal"! No common sense truths can refute his pursuit of human perfection in an imperfect world. HE is the kind of social dreamers who have led to brutal tyrants seeking perfection of life as...

    I watched the video but don't understand what you're calling "swaging cases"; do you mean FL sizing or swaging crimped primer pockets or something else. ??
