First impression: Lee Auto Drum Powder Measure

I’ve been loading ammo on my Lee Turret Press for about a year and a half now, and I’ve loaded somewhere north of 10,000 rounds of 9mm on it. That whole time I’ve been using the Lee Auto-Disk powder measure. In the beginning I was using Unique powder for 9mm, and I didn’t have any complaints with the Auto-Disk. It threw charges that were accurate enough, and it worked fine. However, a few months back …

Don’t Reload With THAT Powder, It’s So Filthy!

When I first started reloading about a year ago, it seemed like everyone told me that I NEEDED to have a Dillon 550 or 650, and I needed to load 147gr bullets over Titegroup or Clays powder to be competitive in competition. When I purchased a couple pounds of Unique, people told me that I wouldn’t like it, but I ran through about 3 pounds of it without a single issue. When I started using …

Cover Six Tactical out of Clayton, NC is Good to Go

A few nights ago I was cruising my internet sources checking the price of bullets, powder, and primers online. I came across a link to an online store called Cover Six Tactical. Turns out they are just down the way from me in Clayton, NC and they had more pistol powder listed in stock on their website than I’ve seen since I started reloading earlier this year. I was down to about 1.5lbs of powder, …

Adventures in Reloading #5 – Crappy Brass

I came across this brass while reloading the other day. Headstamp reads “IMT 9mm Luger”. You’ll notice on the cut out piece of brass that there’s a ridge on the inside of the case where the brass gets thicker, as opposed to normal brass that thickens gradually down the length of the case. The trouble I ran into with this stuff was when running it into the crimp die, sometimes they would stick. They would …

Lee Turret Press Speed

Since starting to reload using the Lee Turret Press, the most common questions I get asked is how fast it is. My particular Lee Turret is the value model, and currently I don’t have the auto-index parts for it, so I manually turn the turret to each station. I’m using the Lee safety prime, and Lee auto-disk powder measure. Starting with clean brass I loaded 100 rounds of 9mm (115gr Berry’s plated bullets over Unique …

Adventures in Reloading #4 – Stickage

Since starting to reload 9mm I’ve been having some issues with ammo getting loaded that sticks in the chamber of a couple of my guns. I originally thought that this had to do with the somewhat “fat” ogive of the bullets I’m using so I began to load them a bit shorter, and shorter trying to back them off of the rifling a bit so that they wouldn’t stick in the chamber anymore. I originally …
