I'll be the grinch and rain on your parade. Reloading, IMHO, requires full concentration and full attention on the task. Every experienced reloader I have ever had communications with has always cautioned newbies to NOT be doing anything else when reloading -- not eating, not drinking, not listening to music, not watching television, not trying to carry on a conversation with someone.

To me, setting up in front of the TV in the living room or family room is just asking to make a mistake.

I can set in front of the TV & do simple tasks like de-priming , priming , neck / mouth flaring / expanding , etc. in batch operation .

If I am loading " serial " fashion with a turret press or a progressive , no dice .

Maybe listening to music , turned down low ? Definitely not listening to an audio book .

I make mistakes . :-(

God bless

lee classic

Postby carload9 » Mon Dec 03, 2012 11:32 pm

with bullet feed all u check is powder. All may brass on both lees are decapped and ss washed. Iam not a NASCAR reloader. Iam slow. Ive always listen to music and watched tv, handloading with trays or a classic.. Classic is less mistakes than handloading. Shot 8000 of em , no prob! Oh yea, finished casting 3000 bullets over last few nites listening to music. I have loaded cerial fashion, mostly frosted flakes. You prob have dogs, girlfriends, wife,children, cats,etc. None of that here! When your 60, things are different.

Yeah ... when you're 60 it's even easier to get distracted.

True confessions: That video I made to show my setup for running the Turret Press? After I finished the video and had put up the camera, I removed the powder reservoir from the Autodisk to pour the unused powder back into the jar -- and realized that the valve was closed. Something I NEVER forget to do -- open the valve -- I forgot to do because I was paying attention to making the video.

Man, I HATE taking cartridges apart.

Yes, that is what he was saying.
He must have the Lee Pro Auto-Disk Powder Measure...the one with a round hopper. They have a shut-off, so discs can be changed without powder falling out.
You are using the square Lee Auto-Disk Powder Measure that is very messy if someone does that with it.

But if you fail to rotate the hopper to the open position, no powder comes thru it. A bummer...I've done that too, and had to pop open every powderless round.

Right...that's my setup at home, carload9
It has served me well, and so, I have no plans on getting a progressive.

I'm looking forward to getting that RCBS Die Locking Ring Wrench that you told me about...so I can get all those wrenches off my reloading bench.

Yes, that is what I was saying. And the reason I didn't remember to open the powder dispenser, or to check the powder in the cases, was ... that I allowed myself to be distracted by other thoughts when I was in the process of reloading.

As stated, I was making a video.

As for my wife -- she changes her hair color so often that I never know who I might come home to on any given day.
