Re: Reloading bench chair

Get a gaming chair. If my reloading desk was as low as yours, I would have one. Been considering cutting down the legs to use a gaming chair. The stool I use is killing my back. https://www.amazon.com/XPELKYS-Computer-Executive-Ergonomic-Headrest/dp/B07QKXNRJ1 Thats along the lines I was thinking, ...

Re: No Hazmat Fee??

Midway has free shipping on orders over $50 right now. That might offset the hazmat fee enough for you. You just missed free hazmat sale at powder valley last week, but you had to order something like $150 worth.

Reloading bench chair

What do you guys use for your reloading bench chair? My old one is done and I need to get something soon, this old one is killing my back since the support broke. Just thought I might get some good suggestions. My bench top sits a little over 34" from the floor.

Re: Chrono Opinions

I use an old competition that my dad bought years ago. Works fine for me but I don't have experience with anything else to compare it to. I've seen guys at the range using the magneto that clips on the barrel and I can see how it would be more convenient. If there are other people shooting next to m...

Re: Ballistic Advantage

I like mine. 10.5 1:7 twist pistol gas. I've gotten sub MOA out of every load I have worked on. They have the money back guarantee so I considered it a safe bet.

Re: New guy here, have a question

I also use the Hornady custom grade. Was about to order when I saw them in stock at Academy for couple dollars less than midway. Good so far with great neck tension on the brass. Just be careful with the crimp feature. I messed up a few brass before I figured it out. Not the fault of the dies, my i...

Re: What's causing this?

I may sand and polish mine up a little bit then, maybe to .304? Really don't want to expand brass back out for any reason. I'm about to take my first trip into the subsonic realm. Making a midway order this week for some more gold dots and they have some Berry's plated 220gr for .22¢ a piece. Figure...

I normally don't crimp and rely on neck tension to hold "em. Of course I sanded the expander ball slightly.
What did you sand it down too?
