My instruction manual is 7 pages as well. The hopper seems snug on the top with no noticeable looseness. I will load a few rounds tomorrow evening, and check each one and see if it wears in some. I do notice a small amount of leakage around the top of the drum. The H110 powder is pretty fine, but no...

I just received my new Auto Drum today from Titan Reloading, and I put it on my LM along with a new set of 44 MAG dies. I am using H110 at 24gr charge. It seems to vary about +/- .2 grains, which is way more than I was expecting. Are you guys using a powder baffle in the housing? Did you hook up the...

I have one of the Taurus TCP's and I love it too. It was my preferred carry gun in the summer, but now I have a Sig P238 which I like a little better. Both are very reliable. I do not see the extended floor plate on the Galloway web site. Is it something special you have to ask him for?

I use the modified 6S shell plate for 9mm. The main reason is that I have had a number of 9mm brass pull through the 19S shell plate, and it is a bear to get the stuck brass out. The 19S shell plate barely catches the rim of the case, and if is is off a little on one side or the other, the head will...

Thanks for clearing that up MM. I looked online for some ingredients lists for the several powdered paints that I know are being used for the coatings, but I did not see any listing for barium sulfate in any of them. Since enough of you are using them, I will go ahead and try some already coated one...

I have been thinking about trying the powder coating. I see Bayou sells them already coated, and I was ready to order some, when I cam across an interesting thought over at Dardas bullets. They are claiming, that the Barium Sulfate in the powder coating is a very hard abrasive, and that it actually ...

I bought an 80% lower in both anodized aluminum, and the polymer one as well. I bought the jig to machine them out. I never got around to cutting them out yet though. I bought mine both from aresarmor dot com. I waited almost 9 months for the first anodized aluminum unit. The polymer one I had in ab...

Is it possible that one of your cases was a berdan primed case. That would quickly bend the pin, and cause headaches immediately down the road. I know from experience.

I will put the bullet feeder in station 4 and seat/crimp on station 5. The ideal situation would be to have a station 6 to crimp in, but I will make do with the 5 stations for now.

I have to confess, I stole the Idea from Bearing01. He has several videos on youtube and shows detail construction on how to make the electronic controls, and the basic unit. I could not find the motor he used so I used the McMaster Carr 6409K14 because it was available, and if it ever breaks, I can...

Ok 2 Horse, here is a short video of my home made case feeder on my loadmaster. I put this together last year using an old 5 gallon paint bucket, a geared motor from McMaster Carr, and some scrap plastic and such that I had laying around. Obviously I am loading .223's in this video, but I also load ...

For the 9MM shell plate, I prefer the ground 6S because, the 19S is too wide to grip the head of the brass. It is easy to get the brass to pull through the 19S if you don't have them lubed good. That is my 2 cents on it. I know others have other opinions.

My two cents worth, buy the 6s shell plate and make the minor grinding modifications to it to make the case sit flat. My reason is that the case fits much better in the 6s plate than in the 19s. Unless I lube my cases, I had quite a few cases pull out of the 19s plate while resizing. The .40S&W ...

Powder around northern central Ohio is pretty plentiful. The local shop has Bullseye, Unique, and about anything else you want in 1# and 8# containers. I was thinking about getting some myself. I usually use Unique, and I probably have about 10# of it. The 8# Bullseye is $99.95 here and was in stock...

I bought 4 S&W pistols last year. Two had to be sent back to the factory for repairs. 1) Bodyguard 380 had the safety so tight I had to tap it with a block of wood to release it. S&W fixed it and I had it back in about a week. 2) M&P Shield 9mm. Brass was bulged back at the head. The fee...
