Well just got done messing with my Dillon. Tore it all apart and looked at the indexing arm. Discovered that the screw that holds it in place was loose. Cleaned it up tightend that screw made some other adjustments and got it workin like it should. Tom let us know how you like the RR load.

Curious to know myself how those rounds shoot for you.
At -10F I will do a hundred rounds of those this afternoon. Too cold to do much else.

Al glad ya figured out the Dillon, and didn't have to send it off. Good job.

Shot those SWC 45's I made yesterday, just so I could reload them and try out that 2400 load I posted for Tom.
Hopefully I will get home in time to shoot 'em tomorrow afternoon.

Ya me to Randy. They now charge for rebuilding the loaders which they didnt use to do. Im sure its an economic thing. If you do the work yourself they will send you the parts. Square Deals are pretty easy. I bought my first Square Deal it was 189.50 Now there 459.00.

Sizing brand new 35 Reminton cases.
Decided to shoot 35rem in Lever Action Silhouette this year so I broke out a stash.
Have a good stock of Speer 180 and 220 flat points. Testing Barry's 158s
