Almost Ready!

Post by 01Foreman400 » April 18th, 2014, 5:01 pm

Got everything but a drill press. I'll buy it next month. Went a head and bought a lifetime supply of components. I do need some more TSS though. Started out with 5 pounds. I'll buy more once the piggy bank gets more in it. I can't wait to start loading. Thanks to Hawglips, GLS, Killdee and Shooter for the help so far.

Harbor Freight has a nice drill press. Fairly cheap too.
Put you plans in the nail scarred hands.

There are no numbers on any of my clocks below 8. Then all of a sudden, 2 days before turkey season they appear. Then right after the season they disappear.
What's up with that

Foreman, I'd say u got 2-3 lifetimes supply!

Now before you ever start, build a pellet trap to catch the shot when you begin testing so that you won't waste all your shot. That will help out tremendously.

Then next February you can make a killing selling some of those parts you will never use!

Looks like you have enough buffer for over 1900 shells.... should be plenty, lol.

I loaded up 10 in my first round, and barely put a dent in the 22 oz bottle.

Darrell, if you could find a vintage hand cranked roll crimper you wouldn't need no "steenkin" drill press, and a lot of us get by nicely with just an electric drill and a diy vise. Gil

You will need to take a second mortgage out to buy enough TSS to use all that up for sure...
Looks like fun though...

I see plenty of the old hand crank roll crimpers on Ebay and they aren't too bad in price either.
