Nice video.
I know these are a metric ton of work, and I do appreciate that.


My comments.

When you turn the powder measure 'on', you might want to say so. A newbie, or potential buyer would not know that the measures turns on/off.

If you are not going to narrate, I would suggest just removing any audio tracks. I remember the last video, I was sure you get sued by Sugarland, I think the radio played the whole song.

I would suggest you do narrate, but get your wife to do it.

Pick 2-3 scene wipes and use those. My view is using a diff wipe each time is distracting.

As a user, how exactly do I make the 'sample round'? I know this but a newbie might not. This would make a nice video itself.

This vid should mention after installing the powder measure to check the powder throw weight.

keep them coming.

I noticed that after I uploaded the video. You can see that I turned the powder measure on, but I forgot to mention it. Good eye.

I really should narrate. It would be a lot easier to follow.

Great idea. That would be an straight foward quick video. Would eliminate any confusion of what a "sample round" is.

Easy enough.

Another good suggestion. Originally the main idea was just to show the Die set-up only. I added a little more with the powder measure. It all ties in. A complete A to Z reloading video would have to be broken in to several parts. Youtube limits videos to 10 minutes. I couldn't get as much detail as I would have liked in 10 minutes. Great suggestions.

Thanks for the comments.

I did not know of the 10min limit.

You are right, the whole process has to be broken up.

What would help is a 'map', maybe a sticky at the top here, of the process.

Each step of the 'map' might reference 1 or more videos.

Looks like you have at least 2 more ideas...

1 how to dial in the first round for bullet seating and crimp.
2 how setup and check a powder measure.

O and I forgot this one. You show twice to use the manufacturers instructions for setting up dies. But you are deviating from the Lee instructs in a few places. I think you need to say these are deviations learned from experience with Lee dies, and the LM. Otherwise, as a newbie, I am going to be terribly confused when I read the directions and it says to turn down the crimp die another half turn.?

Finally, a 3rd idea for a vid is setting up and troubleshooting the priming system. I know I deviate from the Lee instruction on that one too.

Keep them coming, I know its hard work.
