    This is what I always do, chamber an average of 1out of every 10 loaded rounds in all guns Chambered for that round. I check the first rounds to confirm they are good, then when done I randomly gather 10 to 20 rounds to confirm they chamber. The...

    Not as slow as the USPS. I mailed my last purchases from the swapping and selling area on the 6th and it is now the 16th and my priority mail is going in circles between two post offices. I stopped by the local post office and they told me I had to...

    The ingenuity on this forum never ceases to amaze me. I always enjoy watching an inventor and the contraption they make.

    I agree there is either a stuck/frozen steel detent ball in the compressed position, a broken index detent spring or a detent ball somehow missing. All turret style presses have some method of holding the die in alignment after Indexing.

    Thank you for this idea. You could combine both ideas and place the die set in a tube with the size on the end, then place them in a storage plate made to fit the tubes. Sounds like a neat weekend job.

    The key words here are "someone who knows how to use it". Be careful pushing bronze or brass around. If nothing else can be found to cause this issue, then try the hydraulic press as a last resort. When trying to "straighten" something, you my have...

    That sounds like a good idea! One of the bigger problems we have now is some make more money sitting at home than most businesses can afford to pay. I say if you are happy with your job, you will never work a day in your life. I don't understand how...

    It takes time, patients and a clear understanding to get a good crew of doctors. I have fired 1 cardiologist, 2 pain doctors and one neurologist. I told each one face to face why I was finding a new Dr. They forget they work for you.

    One problem with reaming by hand, unless you have a pilot, it is easy to bellmouth the start. That pic with the collet holder holding the cylinder is by far the most accurate method after indicating. This is assuming the factory located the bores an...
