just doing a few to follow up if needed after a ladder test -
which would allready be loaded up at home
I allways end up wishing I had a few more rounds
of a certian charge weight -
sure would be nice to make up a few more right there
what all do I need ?
here's my setup:
1. a K&M arbor press
2. Wilson inline dies with two to four bushings for each die
3. I use a 4" Mitutoyo dial caliper with bushings to measure over
4. K&M priming tool
5. kinda alternate between a Lyman #55 with the Sinclair bottle adapter & drop tubes and a Harrell. I measure loads with a Pact BBK (always carry an extra battery.
6. I do use a Forster case trimmer (actually two) that I have modded to do several chores in case prep. I also have a Wilson trimmer mounted on this same bracket, but rarely need to use it.
7. when throwing long grained powders I also use a generic trickler (probably an RCBS) and a home brew tool to deburr the case I.D.
I can put all this in a 16"x14" x 10" cigar box that I have made brackets to hold everything in place. I have another box I carry powder, bullets, etc in. Will make a third one to put my spotting scope in with the mount as well as the Chronograph & tripod. Onething that has sorta perplexed me is a really good way to carry cleaning rods and cleaning equipment. At the point now that I need to pick up a good range cart.
