  1. I used mine for the first time a few weeks ago. I got in for Christmas 2015 but it hadn't been used. When I pressed the red button to 'trickle', it wouldn't keep rotating. The batteries I'd used were alkaline but a few years old. Changed batteries and away she went! Buying more batteries as we 'speak'...
  2. I will take the .223 please. Ping me a PM re payment methods.

    Tight primer pockets

    Ha-ha, real men shouldn't have a problem seating primers. Even the Karate Kid had sore thumbs....

    Will have a look at the weekend when I get a chance. Thanks.

    Tight primer pockets

    Hi Dave, hope you got home safely on Sun. No, the brass in this instance has not been cleaned beyond cloth and elbow grease which shouldn't have affected the primer pockets but thanks for the suggestion.

    Thanks, I'll check this but I think the ram is pretty free when it's not seating a primer.

    Tight primer pockets

    Thanks. Checked the CCI 450 primers and they are indeed 0.175". The new brass and the once fired brass were similar in the force needed and in any case, I was only using 42-43 gr of RS60 so no where near max. Thanks for your reply!

    Tight primer pockets

    Seating the primers (CCI small rifle magnum primers) in new/ once fired Lapua 6.5 CM brass is a tough job. Hands are knackered afterwards and I really must get the bench primer seater mounted. But, is it unusual to have such tight pockets that you are applying max (two) hand pressure to seat the primers in new brass using the Lee hand primer tool? Or should I use my Dillon Super Swage to make things easier? Guess it's better for them to be on the tight side than slack, but these are really tight... Thanks in advance for any comments.

    Reloading with Rosie

    I showed one of the videos to a couple of young lads who I work with and they thought it was great. Apart from the leaving remark from one who said that he had thought us old target shooters were old fuddy-duddies.... And by some of the comments on here, he may have a point...

    Reloading with Rosie

    Exactly. A bit of light hearted fun with good info at the same time and I 'm surprised at some of the somewhat prudish comments on here....
