WC & EH. What length are you trimming your hulls to please? I've got a couple of bags of the pink wads

I trimmed a quarter inch off and then made my own sorta skiver on the lathe out of maple. Chuck in the drill press and hold up the hill, smoothes out the old folds reasonably. Then I use an antique crimper. The pix up the thread were with RIO pre primed and skived hulls.

Having had entirely too much fun trying to get Fiocchi Shells to eject from my 87 last Saturday during the ACSA match at Ben Avery.  Ordered over shot cards, shell trimmer, case vise and 2 pin roll crimper tool from Ballistic Products Saturday evening.  I got order confirmation but do not see a shipping notice email.  The website says all items have shipped.  The good news is I have plenty of non Fiocchi shells that eject just fine for EOT.

Awesome! Ballistic Products isn’t great about sending shipping notices…but their products work great!  Stop by my booth at EOT! We can go full GEEK discussing the joys of roll crimping! :D

 

Hugs!

Thank you.  Next best thing to being there!  Written instructions are okay, verbal are better, and if pictures are worth a thousand words, moving pictures are worth 10,000!
