    “Bullet proof” is dependent on standards. 1” steel plate can’t stop some bullets.

    There are bullet shields made out of WHMW PE (“plastic”) https://store.aashield.com/products/aa-shield-nij-level-iii-a-10x12-shooters-cut-hard-body-armor Bullet proof “glass” is often a laminant of polyurethane and polycarbonate.

    I leave the non venomous snakes alone to eat all the stuff they can and try and keep things mowed off so the others don’t like hanging around but I eliminate danger when it’s around. No pistol “shotshell” rounds are good for much distance unless...

    FWIW a 650 with case and bullet feed is no slouch, even ran manually.

    Bullets get harder to collate the closer they get to “square” or as length and diameter get close to one another. Hollow base further complicates things but it’s still possible. I 3D printed this one to collate 100gn HBRN bullets.

    I made my first automated 1050 before anyone sold kits to do so.

    I have several automated 1050’s, I thought about doing one of my 650’s but they just are not the same machine. The swage station makes all the difference in the world. Not to mention on the 650 you need the stroke precise on both ends as actions...

    Ever since I was given some samples of these. http://www.pbclinear.com/Download/DataSheet/Simplicity-60-Plus-Shafting.pdf I thought about using them for a powder measure. One bushing two fender washers, whatever shaft size you pick up to 3”,...

    No more than ten years? That used to be a long time, when I was in grade school. I have socks that are older than that now. Stored properly decades old ammunition and or components are perfectly fine.

    If you size them more than you need to, for them to fit the chamber and fire them, they blow out. Then you over size them again and they are too long. Keep doing this without checking wall thickness in this area and he will have case head...

    I guess that depends on the “us”. I have loaded rounds on the above Lee that are 3/8 MOA so the fact that it flexes doesn’t bother me and I have won lots of matches with ammunition loaded with numerous aluminum presses. I was just answering the...

    I got some off eBay. Go slow RPM and it’s not a problem to drill and even tap grade 8 bolts. I have done hundreds making differential screws putting left handthreads down the center of right hand bolts.

    It’s hard for me to disagree with that, most important is that you agree that “spring” exists, if the video had more information and I had captured it better, I would have posted it on one of my other accounts and started a thread here. It was...

    A crummy video for sure but if you pause it at 9 seconds, you can see it’s on zero and at 23 seconds it’s off zero. I think we are one in the same that’s why I started the testing was to gather some facts. Life has just gotten in the way of...

    Aluminum costs more than steel or cast iron per pound. One good reason to use it though is tool life and the speed at which you can machine it.

    Everything can flex, you can measure it or even run an FEA on it and see where/why. That said there have been billions of rounds loaded on machines that flex more than the most ridged one ever made. As far as material goes there are lots of...

    I have, they do flex. How much depends on the press and force being used.

    I had a “strong mount” once and decided that that named it that because it sounded better than “Two Z shaped sheet metal brackets that allow you to mount the press higher off the bench”. If you have a decent bench top, nothing will be more ridged...

    Their pistol dies and universal decap die all use the same one so unless you just have one set, you have spares. They used to accept an email with a photo of the broken one and would send a replacement. I think you have to send them in now.
