    I use the Dave Corbin dies for 44 and have been using 40 S&W for years. As already stated, make sure you anneal the casings well before you seat the core. The seating of the core should expand the brass to the necessary diameter. If you plan on...

    I have found that for 44 and 45 it is a lot, and I mean a lot, cheaper to use the 40 S&W brass cut down to the length you want. I just made some 45ACP half jacket SWC's using a new version of the old Swage-O-Matic dies that has the step on the...

    If you are interested in this type of die you can contact the following (listed below). I have two of his die sets and I believe they are based on the Swage-O-Matic dies but not sure. I have one in 44 cal and one in 45 cal. The dies are made...

    OK. I removed the thermocouple from the panel plug and wired it direct to the PID. I removed the jumper wire and now the PID is reading close to room temperature. I don't have time to check it in the lead pot but I will let you know the results. ...

    I did not shorten the wires on the thermocouple immersed in the pot. I cut some of the wire off the one that came with the PID and SSR to make the inside the box connection to the outside panel plug.

    The way I understand the polarity problem is if polarity is reversed I should be seeing the temperature decrease instead of increase. I receive an increasing temperature as the pot heats up, it's just that the error in the reading gets higher the...

    I tried removing the jumper early on in the process and received an error message.

    I used a section of the thermocouple that came in the package for jumper wires. I ran Positive to positive and negative to negative. I jumped 4 and 5 with the same color wire from the spare thermocouple. Connected them with a panel mount making...
