    Well at least you wont have to change primer size, I’ve known at least 2 reloader guys that bought an extra 650 press just for that reason. Me personally have never done it. Only load ‘06 on RCBS single stage and 9mm and .223 on progressive.

    Hossfly replied to a thread Water drop bullets in Cast Boolits
    I drop all cast boolits into water bucket, mainly to be able to process faster, also drop tray into water after powder coating. Same reason, I’m not patient, and want to move things along. They do seem to be a bit harder maybe by a factor of 1-2...

    I found a bee keeper and what you want to get is the capping wax. Most will have it but just ask if you find one. What I use for fluxing is pine shavings and old candle wax, much cheaper than bee wax.
