    Only way I can see touching is if I start selling ammo. That's something I'm interested in, but can't see pursuing for a long time, if ever.

    That is definitely not something I am interested in, and is also the only way I could see upgrading to a Revolution. The idea of a press that is engineered for higher production levels is inherently interesting though. The again, by the time you consider all the $ and time I have invested in this one, it isn't an inconceivably large step to consider the Revolution.

    This is a hobby for me. Turning hobbies into revenue generators makes it work, and once it is work I start looking for a new hobby. Frankly my day job proides a better return than my hobbies ever could.

    I am proud of what I have running though, and plan to post more about my processes and setup.

    Hell yeah, that's a "smoking" set up. Keep posting please. I'm interested in that nobel powder performance as well.

    You should be proud - and I'm looking forward to learning more about both for amateur hour corner in my garage
    Nice people fall to the manipulator. The manipulator crumbles under the assertive. The assertive shrinks before the aggressive. The aggressive have no plan for the assaultive. The assaultive are unprepared for the homicidal.

    Cleaning brass. I can run 4-5 gallons of brass (8-10,000 9mm cases) at a time and it will be more than clean enough in less than an hour. I'll post more on my latest process for this soon, but basically water, brass, citric acid and Armor All Wash-n-Wax with 2-3 drain/rinse cycles.

    The ruber "wiper" inside the drum was made from a piece of reinforced rubber conveyor belt I had laying around. It improves the level of agitation.



    Currently on sale from Home Depot for $299 with free shipping (recurring deal)

    Dillon RF100 Small Primer Filler.

    Nothing like having this machine fill your primer tubes while your other machine is loading ammo.

    With all the investment of time and money in reloading, guns & home gunsmithing, dry/live practice, training classes and local/major matches - you'd absolutely think I would be better!!!

    Perhaps if I had started earlier in life... All I can do at this point is to make the most of what I have.

    Latest upgrade - I replaced my ancient 300 watt 8-tray dehydrator used for drying wet-cleaned brass with dual 1000 watt, 4 (larger) tray dehydrators. Watch Amazon for good deals, particularly on customer returns.

    I was going to buy a 4 tray expansion for $80 but found I could buy a (customer returned) second unit cheaper!!!

    Sadly I haven't even had a chance to try them out yet.

    Nesco FD-1040 Gardenmaster Food Dehydrator, White, 1000-watt.
