    Just got through loading the 9mm I had cast approximately 1000 loaded and stored. Started switching over to load 45acp on Dillon 650, forgot about the primer system needing to be set up for large primers. Really dreaded that job and it took all of...

    Naw I’m just weighing the completed round, at around 200 gr and divided that into the total weight of 23# would be around 850 or so. Haven’t loaded 45 on Dillon yet, so haven’t weighed any to speak of. Will probably start on them maybe this...

    I use an old Lyman vibratory tumbler that was given to me. Was so worn out, had to pull motor and rebuild with new bearings. But have had good results with it, kinda noisy so it runs for about 15 mins. While I’m out of the room. Good coating...

    Hossfly replied to a thread 45acp in Cast Boolits
    I’ll wait till he gets it and does some shooting and measuring before i make a bunch. Dillon is set up for 9mm right now and have several hundred to go till I’m out of cases anyway. Then will set up to do the 45s.

    Iím sorta in the same boat. My oldest son just won an auction CZ97, 45acp, so Iíve started to make him some Lee 200 gr RNFP as Iíve acquired 1500 once fired cases, cheap. So I donít own a 45acp to try them out, just have a case guage. Now I (need)...

    I use poly pellets from craft store, theyíre white, try them as what they do is add static to get good coat. Mine coat with or with out. If you donít get good coverage with out you can always add and try again. Humidity also doesnít help.

    Hossfly replied to a thread PID Unit in Casting Equipment
    I would start off with the thermometer, then later if your not satisfied with the temp control of a lee pot you can add a PID. You can get the equipment parts off internet for about $50.00 or buy one already made, for more.

    If they fit in the case guage, they should fit the chamber. Mine do in the Thompson Encore, and DPMS.

    Yes electricity very much cheaper. @ .08 per KWHour that Lee pot only cost about .08 cents per hour to run. Melting 150# WW needs propane or wood fire to make ingots with. I would start with 20# pot, just because it will hold 18# don’t mean you have...

    I’ve used pine shavings like you purchase at feed store for bedding horses in stalls. Takes longer to start burning when used with COWW but gets to a good char after it lights. Then if needed, use bees wax, or capping wax helps also.

    We’re moving up in the world with 4 red lights (with cameras) and a way to bypass all of them. Still experience grid lock though.
