    I sent a picture to LEE, and they simply sent a link to order a new one. Free, I pay shipping.

    For $10, I'm not going to mess with it anymore. But thanks for the thoughts and help.

    How do you check the disk? Is there a way to disassemble the tool and get it free? I can't figure out how the thing is assembled in the first place. If it's some kind of friction fit retention ring...

    I'm wondering, using a hand primer, how the rest of the process works. That would require priming the case, then sizing it? How can that be done safely? I know squeezing the casings into the sizing...

    I watched several vids about using it--the problem is the priming tool itself seems to be jammed. The chromed disk that rides above the primer seating thing is stuck all the way down. So now the...
  5. Problem with Lee Loader primer tool problem

    I recently purchased a used .38 Lee Loader off of ebay. The pieces are all there, everything looked ok. But I realized the priming tool isn't working correctly

    If you've seen the device, it's a...

    My dad had a scandium frame .357 magnum for a short time. It kicked so hard, the bullets would wiggle out of the case and lock it up by around round 3. Cool idea, stupid in the real world. He also...

    How tight should RB in Wad be? 20ga and .575

    I finally got in my BPI Commander wads for 20ga. They seem to fit a .575 ball much better than my other wad. The ball fits into the Commander without bulging it or separating the petals.

    I have...

    I got some C1078-20 wads for use with my .575 RB. When I place the ball in the wad, the petals flare out significantly. I tried lifting the ball up to near the end of the petals, and it's a very...
  9. 20ga Pressure Test--Results In Please help with increasing powder charge

    I just got my results back for 2 20ga rounds I'm trying to work up. (Thanks to the people at Precision Reloading!)
    They both were under powered, and I'm curious if someone could help me in adding a...
  10. I just now read this more carefully--I just...

    I just now read this more carefully--I just realized that they slugs were permanently bonded to the slugs. I actually thought about that, to see if it would help some 1oz Lee slugs fly straight. ...

    I was curious about that--it's ok to use one in the gas seal cup? Do you find it beneficial? Most of my reloading has been with fiber wads and symmetric gas seals, and in that case it didn't seam...
  12. I heard that was a common fix, that the wads will...

    I heard that was a common fix, that the wads will actually conform around the ball if you don't put it on a stiff base of some kind. I have some hole cutters and some stiff card stock I was planning...
  13. Thanks for all the info folks. I will look...

    Thanks for all the info folks. I will look around and see what is actually in stock. My recent reloading efforts are mostly a response to their being nothing on the shelves at the store! I have a...
  14. .575 Round Ball in 20ga--please recommend a wad

    I haven't found much solid info on what wad to use with a .58 cal RB in a 20ga. I just ordered a Lee mold to cast up my own.

    I'm using Cheddite straight walled hulls (new).

    Also, if the RB...

    That would be great. It isn't a rush--with the supply shortage we're going through, it could be 2030 before I could find the proper wads anyway :-)
  16. WANTED TO BUY: Lyman sabot slugs and 0.575 round ball

    I've been kicking around casting some shotgun slugs. I just can't justify the cost of the molds, for how few of them I would shoot.

    I put out the word to see if anyone would loan me some molds,...
  17. WTB 20ga slug mold--Wanted to buy or borrow

    Hello Folks,
    If anyone has a Lyman sabot slug mold (the one that looks like an air rifle projectile), and/or a 20ga mold for one of the Russian segmented slugs, I'd be interested to purchase. Or...

    Load Data for 20ga 3/4 and 7/8oz using WSF

    I spent a number of hours online and at the library yesterday trying to find load data for 20ga in the 3/4 and 7/8 payload department.
    The only shotgun powder I have been able to find anywhere...

    Cooking up a new 20ga load part 2

    Before I start, the ultimate plan is to pressure test the loads prior to firing them. I'm a relative newbie, and by no means am I confident in safely making my own recipe.


    I found some new,...
  20. Thank for those insights. Just to be paranoid, I...

    Thank for those insights. Just to be paranoid, I think I would pressure test the loads. I did some scoping, and it looks like you can get 2 lots of 5 rounds done for about $50. That's cheap...
  21. I am reading up on pressure testing right now. I...

    I am reading up on pressure testing right now. I agree--never before have I attempted to work anything up from scratch. It's always been published data to the letter. And the low end of the range. ...
  22. Working up a new load from scratch (safely)---Trying to get around supply shortage

    I looked all over for some 20ga reloading supplied. I finally came up with some primed hulls, and a handful of components from BPI.

    I'm wondering if you are trying to design a load from scratch,...

    This has been my experience. I found a couple boxes of slugs locally. That was it. They had 28 and 10 gauge, a lot in the way of 12. And like 4 boxes of 20ga slugs. Oddly, as I'm trying to put...

    20ga reloading supplies--does ANYONE have them in stock?

    I just got my hands on a well used, but solid 20ga double. Cut down to 19", shortened stock. It came with an ancient box of #6 shells.
    I went to purchase some more 20ga ammo, and could only come...
  25. Keel on Double Barrel--options for replacement?

    Hello folks,
    I was just given a 20ga side by side. It's old, and the chokes won't handle steel shot anyway, so I'm kicking around making a "cowboy action" shotgun out of it. Cut down the barrel and...
