Weight consistency of my latest batch of 62gn bullets.
►Cores used were in the last video
►Jackets were annealed in the dual element pot
►Point forming choices at the end

I'm finding that core trimming isn't always the way to go.

Repair your mold's sprue pivot/stop.
Thanks to Kenny (Eagle Eye Shooting) for the idea.

Building a PID isn't rocket surgery, and you can save quite a bit if you DIY.

I got tired of being limited to annealing a small amount of jackets at a time, so I fixed that little problem.
Twice as many jackets at a time, and more consistent annealing is a real win in my book.
Dual element the world!

A little goes a long way.

Why didn't I do this earlier?
Oh well, at least I know now.
► There's a typo in Chrono data: Series 63A: 24.5gn = 2517 f/s Avg
The "A" indicates that I forgot to archive, and had to separate and calculate and edit the two groups. # (in this case 63) is the first group, and #A is the second group.

I finally found what was causing the parks to fly from my PID.

I found that the 9mm shaker plate provides another function.

I finally healed up enough to head to the range for a little HP testing.

Here's how I protect those threads.
The proper fit is a #8-32 female coupling nut.

I found a simple fix to my temp creep issue with the dual heating elements.

About 3 months back CCD asked about headstamp sorting, so I made this video. Then it was somehow buried and forgotten. After finding it, I re-edited and uploaded it.

Here I go complaining about (and fixing) this press again.

It wasn't my intent to rip off someone else's idea.

Just thought I'd clarify the purpose of this mold from the last video.

I honestly didn't know that Backyard Inventor was the one who came up with the mold idea:

and

With Charlie's guidance, I made a BHN test slug mold based on the one he showed us, by modifying a defective mold.
It wasn't as easy as it sounded, and I badly butchered 4 out of 5 cavities, but I eventually prevailed. One is all I need anyway, so it's all good.

I ran out of Ramshot TAC, so I had my son try some SW Precision.
I arbitrarily chose these loads, so there's no hard data to glean.
►I forgot to mention that I used a long drop tube for 26.0 gn, and now realize that is why it was not a compressed load.

I decided to brag about my son's shooting a bit this time around.

I finally got to shoot some of my 9mm HPs.
Now I have some questions about alloys and BHN.
►I'm adding the equivalent of 1/4 lb of pewter to the reject pile. Hopefully it will give me just a little less expansion around 1270 fps.

I finally got my Lee Auto-Drum to stop leaking with fine powders!
The best part is that it wasn't difficult.
►SW Heavy Pistol doesn't leak either, and it's much finer than SW Auto Pistol.
►Right after uploading, I cam across this video by HardCase 999:

If one doesn't work for you, the combination of the two methods should.

I made a PC tumbler that many will find easy and cost effective to make.

I may be crazy, but I'm not insane!

Mostly swaging related with a bit of this and that thrown in here and there.
