7 Good Reloading – Reloading Dies
Hornady® Die Box
What's going on everybody. I just picked up a hornady gun case they. Lock they have three points of contact they lock here and there and i. Picked this up because i carry a gun in my car every day and you know someone. Just broke my window but you know to get into my car whatever grab my change or. Cds or something stupid you know they. Pop the glove box open and some thief criminal you know has my gun and you. No i thought about that for a while and i said you know what i know my. Car's private property i know it's locked, and they're committing a crime, and they're breaking into my stuff stealing my gun but still it's a. Criminal a thief a thug a felon having. My gun and i don't want to make it that. Easy for him you know they commit a crime something happens you know that's that's a terrible thing and i don't want. It to be with my god i want to be with. Any gun but you know especially my gun. So i bought this was like 25 bucks. At amazon and you know there it's a you. No thin steel like i say it's not gonna keep anybody out this is just for. Like unauthorized users mostly you know. If you're riding around with kids or passengers in general coworkers in your car just to keep him out of your. Stuff right if criminal broke into your car, and he found it can he get into it. Absolutely he could probably pry it open. With something simple is a thick. Screwdriver in about two or three minutes but yeah. So it's just one extra step a little more of a deterrent just so you know. Can't he or she can't just you know. Break into your car grab your stuff and. There but you know if it's an athlete 11. Couple extra magazines. That's for its 1911 but it closes up it. Has a key what it does do though real. Quick I'm gonna go down home depot because they give you this cheap little cable right and you know you can cut. That but paradise you know so i want to. Go down to home depot me to take a diameter steel cable i don't know what's. What diameter i want yet I'm gonna go check it out but I'll probably get you know something left two maybe even three days just something a little thicker so they can't just cut it with a. Big pair of dikes I'm gonna get. Something a little better than s2 because this just goes in here like this. And that's, so they can't jerk on it but. You know if they pried this up enough. They could get that out nothing flat. That's just a piece of aluminum cheap washer there so I'm gonna get something a little bigger steel and then that way. I guess a they gotta earn it and most of. These you know they smash and grab you know they're gonna break into your car grab your radio real quick or handful of. Change or whatever they see that's valuable to them so if i got a little. Thicker gauge wire and put that on there. That'd be that'd be a little more of a. Deterrent little did have to put in a little more effort into getting that. Cable cut but yeah is it gonna is it. Going to about anyone from getting in. There no you can pry it open like i say probably two three minutes but as if. They want to spend the two or three minutes when the car alarms going off and people are looking around like i. Said just a little extra deterrent so quantity lockable gun case. 25 bucks on amazon three points of. Contact let's say they they lock. Here there and up there and the bars. That's why i got this one because at. Least it has three points of contact most of the other ones the gun vaults and the bulldog and it just got one lock. Right there and like i say you pry it. Open probably thirty seconds still pry this one open with very easily but you know two more losses because it's better. In my opinion so there it is man everybody should be responsible you know. Keep the sata on the authorized people's. You know access and just a little more. Deterrent for common thief nice. Watch anyway.

Okay guys i have a quick tip on. Removing stuck case in my situation the. Case head is broken off and let's take a. Look probably see that in here so the. Issue is what do we do we go and buy. A bunch of stuff or is there a simple. Way to get this case back out so it's. Been fired there's nothing in there. And so obviously what I'm gonna do just. Take these products and remove that case. So first i get myself an oversized brush. This is a 50 caliber typical bronze. Bristle brush the caliber of the weapon. Is 303 british and it's typical that. When you reload this if you rule length. Resize that you're gonna get a head. Separation because that's typical. Problem with this weapon this caliber so. Typical so let's just take like a pistol. Cleaner I've put my. Brush on their remove my bolt. Insert my brush in far enough so that it. Goes into the brass and probably. Asks the case head now this brush is. Like jammed into their pull it out booms. Simple.

Hornady® Powder Cop
Today's video will be a quick look at the horny powder cop I've used it in. Some of my other videos and I've made mention of it a couple of times so i thought it might be time to go ahead and. Show you basically how it works and what. It does essentially all of this is a. Tube with a rod coming down the center. Of it the idea is as the case goes in to. The die the powder that's in the case. Will push that rod up and give you a visual indication at the top here that. There is indeed a powder charge there if the rod comes up too far that'll tell. You that there may be a double charge in the case for example if you double. Stroke the case when it goes into the. Powder measure now it's not very useful. On a single stage press it's really designed to be used on an auto progressive press in the station right. After the powder measure so that the. Case first goes into the powder measure then immediately comes to the next station and goes up into the powder cop. To verify that the powder measure did its job properly so single stage press. It's really not necessary but when you're another progressive press and you're cranking out rounds sometimes you. Don't always see the powder clearly. You know to see how much powder is in the case or if there's any powder at all in the case so this just gives you a safeguard to verify your powder charges. So set the powder cop up initially what. You'll do is you'll screw the powder count down such that when the ram is all. The way at the top the bottom of the. Powder cop will just touch the shell plate and that will guarantee that the case has gone as far as it can into the. Powder cops you get a better indication. Yeah once I've done that i need to. Adjust this rod now what I'll do is I'll. Move the white oring down the rod of waves and that'll hold. The rod up for me and I'll put a case in. An empty case no powder charge and run. The ram up to the top and then I'll simply push the rod down until it comes. And comes in contact with the bottom of the case and at that point then the. Little o-ring is adjusted so that when. There's no powder charge the o-ring will not come out of the top of the powder cops oh no o-ring no powder charge now. I'll put a powder charge in the case. Here normally I'd run it through the powder measure first to get a proper. Powder charge but I'm just going to the. Purposes of the demo here I'll just put in what looks to me like a proper powder charge and then I'll run the case up. Into the powder cup and you can see that. The rod comes up you can see the little. White ring here and what you want to do. Is before you start a reloading session is get an idea of where that oring or how far up that o-ring comes when you have a proper powder charge what you. Also want to do then is double charge your case or put way too much powder in. There put more powder in this case and. I'll run that up into the powder cop and. You can see how far up it comes when there's too much of a charge basically. Right now looks like about twice it comes up almost to the first little. Groove in the rod here so that's a. That's a double charge there and it just. Comes up you know about that far when there's a proper charge so before you're reloading session you want to get an idea how far up the rod comes with a. Popper charging with a double charge and of course no charge at all you won't see. The o-ring at all now an important thing. To remember this rod here needs to be as. Free as possible to move up and down especially when the case comes down out of the powder cop you want that rod to go back down so. It's ready for the next case if the rod is getting stuck on you or that kind of thing you need to make sure you clean keep this clean keep the interior of the powder cop clean and you want to keep it lubed with a dry lu not not a oil-based. Or wax based move what i use i either. Use the horny one shot gun cleaner and. Dry lube that'll put like a teflon very. Thin teflon coating on the rod you can. Also use the hornady one-shot case lube which has the same kind of dry lube on. There you know the tri loop so you want. To use a dry lube so that it doesn't contaminate your powder because the. Thing is going to come in contact with your powder so don't put any kind of. Well-based or liquid kind of oil on this. On this rod or that could get into your powder now in the configuration that. Comes when you buy it you know right out. Of the box the problem you'll find is. That the bottom of this rod the plate or. The part that goes into the case and. Rests on the powder charge is too thick. To fit into a 223 cartridge it's as well. Just barely enough or small enough so. That a 308 cartridge will go in it so. Really it's its only useful right out of the box for pistol cases however what. You can do I'm going to take this little. Overhang off the rod and that way i can. Drop the rod out the bottom and remove. It and what I'll do or if you'll notice. That the button this is the bottom here that's what's normally the bottom and. That won't fit into the rifle cases but. It'll fit fine into you know anything from a 380 to a 45 caliber. Case what I'm going to do is I'm going. To put it in the top of the powder cop. Upside down so that the what's normally. At the bottom is on the top here okay and now i have the thin portion down at. The bottom before i do that though what. I'm gonna do is put the little white bow. Ring on to the shaft here all the way up. Until it touches the bottom piece here and then I'll put that in and then i can. Adjust it the same way i can put a case. In a rifle case and move it down until. Until the rod touches the bottom of the case and adjust my little o-ring there so that i can tell when it's has no charge has a proper charge or has an. Overcharge so that's how you would. Configure it to use for rifles now. You'll notice that the bottom of the rod. Here does fit into a 223 although it's a. Very close fit so when you're bringing the ram up you need to be conscious. Of how centered the your cartridge is on. The shell plate you have to bring it up kind of slow just to make sure that the rod is going down into the case so that. It can measure the powder charge or rest on top of the powder charge in. The case so you'll get that that visual. Indication for 308 cases it fits just. Fine i shouldn't have any problem the. Only problem you'll have is when you have 223 cases you have to make sure the cases is going into or the shaft is. Going into the top of the case just. Right so that it can give you that indication that there's powder charge. That's all for this video i hope you.

Hornady® Match-Grade Die Sets
RCBS® Standard Bullet Puller Collets
Well hi guess what i made a mistake well. If you're 70 years old you've made a few. In your lifetime — i loaded up some. Wonderful 6.5 crete more rounds only i. Used the wrong primer so now i have to. Take these apart there's a couple of ways you can do it you can use an. Inertia type bullet puller where you put. The case down inside the cartridge down. Inside and whack it on something hard i. Use a barbell actually works well i. Don't lift them i just beat okay and. What happens though is then you have to. Take it apart and you have to take the case out and put the case aside and you. Got your little gripper and set it aside then because you've got this thing full. Of powder and a bullet you have too vary. Carefully let the pattern get back in. Here without dropping the bullet down. Into your canopy you know you see it and. Then you got to put it back together to use again so you're thinking this is a. Terrible tool no this is a wonderful tool when you only got to do it one or two or five just i keep it right there. You use it all the time just grab it whaps do it when you're setting up dies you frequently will overdo something and. You need to take it apart and start over right here to the rest of you fine on. The other hand if you've got a lot of them to do and I've got 60 to do you. Want to use a more production type of thing here's the way this one works. You run the bullet up inside of this. Collet and you turn the threaded. Pour that pulls the collet up inside. Didn't gramps the bullet and pulled case. Away leaving the bullet behind so now. You very easily got your bullet I'm in your case full of powder you dumped your. Powder in their then you stick it over. Here and i don't know the air conditioners running might not hear you. Knock out the primary and don't bother. To even try to salvage a primary trust. Me on that do not yes it will fire more than likely. But it won't be a rat again you'll have. Patterns not groups as a result you. Probably are picking up a wine never. Mind anyway how's this thing work well besides think the obvious it works. Very well i didn't even do you. Didn't even show you that there's the bullet pristine perfect not a mark on it. This thing grips it like a mother grabs. A baby i mean it's just and here's. What's inside there's this threaded pour. Call it and what it's doing is it's. Pulling this collet and this is the. Downside of this thing you've got to have a column for each size of bullet so. Here's a six point five millimeter colins in addition you if you've got a 223. You'll have to have a 22 college now the nice thing is that 22 collet would as well. Work for 222 250 of 222 220 swift etc so. You would need like a 22 caliber or 6. Millimeter caliber 25 6.5 27 7. Millimeter etc if you have those. Cartridges you'll have to have one of these, and they're about by the time you pay tax or shipping they're twelve thirteen dollars something like that but if but you can use the same body. Over and over and over but if you're if you're into a production situation here. Where you've got a lot of these then. This is the white coat and then the. Print one more time you take our load it around as a correct primer you run it up. And it's that the mouth of the case. Is actually hitting the face of the collar just the bullets going up inside. Tighten it down and pull it and then. Take your powder can you see it there. Okay knock out the primer and away you. Go okay don't don't even bother to comment. About knocking out primers that are live okay if it goes alright it's. Gonna make a noise I'm not worried about it never has but if it does its just. Gonna make a noise it's not gonna hurt me I'm wearing a safety glass don't. Comment okay thank you that's it rights. There. Hey okay. In the interest of science we have a case here where we have removed the. Bullet and the powder and now we're. Going to knock out the primer using this. Lead decapping die I've removed the. Little bottle that catches everything then here so the primer will just go straight through what i want to demonstrate is what will happen get it. Up in there if you slam it down instead. Of easing the mouth away i was ready. We'll knock the primer out of it okay. They're there for your inspection is the. Primer and if you notice on the other. Side it's not bulged or anything now. There is a what you think may be a flaw. Or defect but if you realize this is a. Cci bench rest primer and they have a. Little tiny be stamped on there which is. What that is but it's not bulging it did. Not go off and before i shot this video. I tried this five times i don't plan to. Do that each time but i think it pretty well. Serves to show you that you can decap. These live primers and then any without. Any fear one more thing about this. As much as i love the forester coax. Press and extol its virtues you do you. Know how much i love this press it. Doesn't work with these conventional. Kind of bullet post because the die is. Free to turn inside the groove that. Holds the that holds the retaining nut. Composite ear but you know so the whole. Think would just if it's not locked down tight and when you try to turn it instead of this thing's threading up it. Would just simply rotate the entire dyson now forrester has one that will work. With it and I'm sure it's like their other products it's excellent but if you have one from our cbs it won't or who. Else I'm not sure now hornady makes one. Come to think of it that uses a lever to. Get cams over to pull the collet up. Inside the taper and that one very well. Could work right here i don't know it might but i suspect that you know you're. Gonna want to use a conventional depress. That's one of the few things that press. Doesn't just be to everybody else on but. Bears bear told you. Now get this thing set up right now. Watch it just go through one cycle or less time in less time walk down decap. Branch society doesn't take long and. I've already done now. 45:25 to go 35 done 35 I'm sorry 35 and. A half 25 to believe after i. Demonstrated that the primer won't. Ignite when you hit it removing it. Occurred to me that it might be fun to. Try to put one in their upside down so. That the the normal striking surface. Of the primer is on the inside instead. Of the outside so we can see this you. See these here we go so you have a. Normal primer here and then the one i. Just did which is the primer upside down. I'll be honest I'm not sure what well i. Do i think it's going to go off because the decapping pins gonna hit it from. The inside just like a firing pin would and just to be safe I've removed the. Little catcher bottle i think this will. Go off you ready. Well i guess it's just harder to set one. Off then, you would think that one oh. Yeah now that one has a substantial oops. Dent it has a substantial dent up there. In the face of it but it's its like a. Light primer strike oh no thanks it. Takes a pretty good bit to set one of those things off science marches on for. Those of you who have been wondering in. Case you don't know this particular. Grain press I'm using here is the are. Arming the reading undramatic. And it's a great press i bought it years. Ago when i started shooting black powder. Cartridge rifles and that great four and. A half or four and three-quarter inch throats there allows you to get those. Long black powder cartridges in there. For and those 500 grain bullets that. Stick out so far they all fit in there. This is the reading undramatic we can. Get the typical priming the old and so. Forth and what i also like about it is it expels primers down through the. Center of the ram and they're captured. In this tube down underneath and it'll. Hold about a million it's a and it's. Opening front it's big and solid and a. Lot of things are really easier to do on. It. And some other presses like getting your. Hand in there — can't catch that because it's i don't know only it really matters that much but anyway that's what it is ready thank you folks. 58 59 this is the penultimate case how. Many of you use that word incorrectly. Like i did forever penultimate does not mean like the most. Ultimate it means the next to the last so that was the penultimate cartridge. And this is the ultimate cartridge the last number 50 are number 60 penultimate. It's like bill o'reilly that's our word. For the day no thank you. That's it that's it the show is over thank you elvis has left the building if. He was ever here.
