RCBS® AR Series Small Base Two-Die Rifle Set
Makes reloading easier for AR style or semi-auto shooters. A must for the progressive reloader. This set contains a small-base resizing die and a new taper-crimp bullet seating die. The taper crimp is more forgiving when various case lengths are loaded at the same time, especially in a progressive press.

Today's video we'll take a look at the hornady cam lock bullet puller it's a. Really handy little device it's biggest. Advantage of speed i your time that. Takes me to put a bullet in i want these. Kinetic pullers and hang it on something. And get the bullet out of there and in the case i can do five or six cartridges. With the cam lock bullet puller so that's. The biggest advantage of speed you're pressed to pull the bullet instead of. You know banging it on something and these things tend to break I've been through a few of these that's why i always keep two on hand in case one of them breaks and i can i have something. To pull bullets with now the cam hawk. Bullet puller comes in three pieces. That's what you have your die body you. Have your and you have your cam lock or your can device which includes this. Little pin here which is the push pin those are two pieces to come with. The cam lock bullet puller then you'll also need the appropriate. Call it for the caliber you're using now. This particular one is number thirteen there's 13 different kaulitz available. For different diameter bullets number thirteen is for forty-five caliber and. You'll notice that it goes on a 45. Cartridge perfectly and stops at the case neck here so that's number thirteen. Is for forty-five number seven here is. For 308 and 312 caliber bullets so what. You do to then just set this up is you take the cam lock assembly off of the. Die body you put the collet in with the openings. Down and then you screw in your. Can lock assembly now the instructions. That come with this thing are confusing. At best and almost impossible to. Accomplish at worst. I had just mine a little bit differently here you can see i at the end here i see. If you can see this on the video if you. See that as i turn the handle the can. The collet in the end there will come forward and compress what that does then. Is it compresses it around me that's in. Focus or not but it compresses the collet then around the bullet and then. When you lower the ram of the press since this is grabbing onto the bullet. It'll pull the case away from the bullet. So the way i adjust it and this is. Totally different than the in the instructions I'll take the kinloch. Bullet puller off the press all together I'll take I'll put the collet in and. I'll take a cartridge that i want to pull and I'll just sit it on there on. The collet and they call it the. Cartridge will be stopped by the collet grabbing on to the case mouth here. So I'll put it on like that and then. I'll work the handle if the handle won't. Turn and I'll unscrew it a little bit or if i can't turn to you know lever the handle I'll turn it a little bit or unscrew it and try again if i can get it. Down to a 90 degree i can check to see if the bullet is being held in place if. It is maybe I'll screw it in just a. Little bit more and see if i can get it to a 90 degree there i can't so I'm. Going to undo it maybe about a quarter. Turn to an eighth of a turn i can get it down to a ninety degree the bullet is held in place that means. I've got my cam lock assembly adjusted. Properly so I'm going to take my locking. Ring here and rock lock it to that in that position okay so next step then is to go. To the press and adjust it okays to. Adjust the die into the press again. I do this entirely differently then hornady does when put my lock and load bushing on there uh what I'll do is I'll. Take cartridge that i want to pull the. Bullet on by the way i swap these cartridges together just for this video you'll notice that some of them are had. A spent primer some don't have a primer. At all so you're wondering why I'm using. Beat-up brass and beat-up bullets because i just put these together for. The video uh what I'll do is I'll take a. Cartridge i want to pull and raise the. Ram all the way and then I'll screw the. Cartridge or the die down over the. Cartridge so it comes in contact with. The neck of the case right there and. Then I'll lock that down now then all. You need to do in order to pull the. Bullet is you bring the ramp up to the top keep this straight up turn the. Handle lower the around and boom and you bring. You handle back up and it'll drop the bullet out for you put the next one in. And boom bullet pull okay raise the. Handle drop the bullet out for you so as you can see i can whip through these pretty quick much faster than a. Kinetic puller in fact I'd still be fiddling with the kinetic puller to get just to get one cartridge done now this only really. Works jacketed bullets cast bullets all you're. Gonna do is squish your bullet i. Don't think it'll work let me go ahead and try a cast bullet here. It shouldn't good yeah. Can't quite grab onto that yeah all I'm. Doing here is scratching the scratch in the lead so won't work with cast. Bullets but it works great with what. Jacketed bullets very simple to use simple to to set up and that works great. Be careful with this handle here if you pull this handle you know to the side. Too much I've heard that they'll break off of there so when you turn the handle. Make sure you're going with the. Rotation of the handle and not not against it just to make sure you don't. Break the handle off they do sell these handles separately which i assume is. That's the reason people tend to break their handles off so just be. Careful with that than that it's a handy. Little device goes real quick that's all.

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.
