    About a year ago I found myself in need of a new powder scale. At that time I decided to try one of the electronic dispenser/scale combo’s, but I found that it was just too cumbersome and slow for my tastes and I made the decision to sell it and go back to a simple and convenient beam-type scale.

    Ask ten hand loaders what they use to prime their cases and you will likely get and equal number of different answers. Some folks like hand priming tools, others like bench priming tools, and then of course there are those who prefer to use the priming tool built into their reloading press. Each will have their justifications and reasoning as to why they prefer that style and method, but sometimes circumstances force you to change your process and adopt new methods. That's the situation I found myself in earlier this year and is the reason behind my recent purchase of the new Lee Auto Bench Prime priming tool. ...

    In my never ending quest to simplify and speed up my reloading process I decided that it was time I try out one of these new-fangled electronic powder dispensers/measures. Up to this point I have been using a Lyman No. 55 powder measure and a Lyman beam-type scale to dispense and weigh each and every charge. A random Lee Dipper scoop would be employed to "trickle" in or scoop ...

    I have to admit that as a shooter and hand loader one of my least favorite activities is cleaning cases. It's just one of those tedious jobs that we all hate but still have to do. Like most people, when I first started reloading I simply cleaned each case by hand. It was a slow, time consuming process but it got the job done and at the time I wasn't shooting/reloading nearly as many rounds as I do now so it was relatively effective and practical. ...

    One thing I have noticed in the benchrest match shooting game is that there are different opinions on what equipment is the best. Many debates have been feuded on what is the best barrel, who makes the best action, and many other arguments on what is the best this or that. One thing that the majority agrees on though is that the Harrell Powder Measure is the best measuring device on the market.

    Earlier this year I was at the Firearms Industry Super Shoot at Kelby’s range, [readers should know that this event draws in the best shooters from around the world] and as I was walking around in the loading barn I started looking at everyone’s set-ups. It didn’t take me long to realize that probably 90% of the shooters were using Harrell’s powder measures. I saw a couple ...

    Not to long ago I realized I was long overdue to change the media in my tumbler. I have used walnut, corncob and treated corncob in the past with acceptable results, but was curious if there might be a better alternative out there. Walnut leaves my cases nice and shiny, but it loads up with resize lube pretty fast and thus requires frequent changes. Corncob works well for removing the lube and leaves my cases clean, but they're not near as shiny as those done with walnut. The Lyman Red Rough Treated Media results in the best shine, but the downside is you have to hand wipe all the red dust off the brass after tumbling to find it.

    Since I was in need of some new media I decided to drive to the Cabala's in a near by town to see what they had. When I got back to the area with the media I found I had five ...
