  2. The best indicator if and when this pandemic is going to correct is keep your eye on the FBI monthly NICS checks. I historically watched numbers increase and got the credit card out for reloading & powders on the Wish List. Didn't have to rush to the scrap yard for lead either.... over 1700 lbs of various alloys, all marked on 6 lb ingots plus plenty of reloads and lubed/naked cast bullets for every firearm in the safes ... shot shells also. It's pretty boring now not having to cast and reload Truthfully, I really feel sorry for those new SASS members and those that didn'

  9. The key to easy shucking of USED spent shot shells, irregardless of rib or smooth hulls is ... the MEC Size Master ... The sizing station accommodates both high or low brass heads, and the highly accurate "Power-Ring" collet sizer returns every base to factory specifications. An eight-fingered collet squeezes the base back to original dimensions, then opens up quickly to release the shell.
  10. Snakebite .... line a 100 Cowboys up and say the word ACTIV and 99 will shout ... Say What? The "one" will be me .... have about 5 hundred hulls, 20 and 12ga plus the last wads available for sale ... red, yellow and white and the loading data for each.

  17. Those primers are the classic worst I have ever seen and definitely are coated with contaminated powder. So, IMO, the squib was due solely to a cleaning process that left moisture in the case that contaminated the powder If the spent reload primers were removed before the liquid dunking - were perfectly day before putting in the cleaner, the primers would never look like the ones in the pictures. Ergo, all points to operator’s methodology
