Here it is, October already, and just like every year the vibrant green horizon is showing a touch of yellow and bronze. In a few weeks our woods here in Wisconsin will be blazing with fall colors. This can only mean one thing to many of us, hunting season is here. There is nothing like the sights and smells of the woods this time of year and the anticipation of our favorite game stepping out of the brush. The Titan Crew wishes all of you the best of luck this year.

DILLON SQUARE DEAL B
How it Works
Reloading with Dillon’s Square Deal B is Easy as 1-2-3!
Most shooters realize that reloading is the most economical way to enjoy their sport, but many shooters are unaware of just how simple it is to reload. In fact Dillon’s Square Deal B is one of the easiest progressive loaders in the world to learn to operate. How can we make that statement? Simple. Since all of the reloading steps are performed with a stroke of the handle, there is less to remember (or forget) than with an old-fashioned single-station press.
Of all the steps in reloading, the adjustment of the reloading dies is the most critical. With the Dillon Square Deal B’s removable toolhead, your dies will stay in perfect adjustment. There’s no need to screw them in and out – even when changing calibers! The Square Deal B toolhead is held on by four allen screws. There’s less to go wrong, less to remember.
The Dillon Square Deal B will produce match-quality ammo for 18 pistol calibers. The Square Deal B comes complete with one caliber conversion installed on the machine.
The Basic machine includes the following:
1 Square Deal B reloading machine
1 powder measure with large and small powder bars (small installed). The small bar throws from 2.1 to 15 grains of powder. The large bar throws from 15 to 60 grains of powder
1 priming system with large and small priming parts
1 early warning buzzer and rod for primer system
1 packet of primer tubes containing: 1 large primer pickup tube, 1 small primer pickup tube, and 1 magazine tube
1 primer slide assembly
1 powder measure fail safe rod assembly with bracket (13355)
3 locator buttons
1 powder die
1 caliber conversion kit
1 set of carbide dies (except for 44/40, which uses steel dies)
1 spent primer cup with bracket and screws.
1 loaded cartridge chute with screws and a plastic bin
1 written instruction manual
INSIGHT OF THE MONTH:
Pro 1000 Priming
The trick to the Pro-1000 priming system is to learn to develop a "feel" through the press lever. By now you can probably tell when a primer seats correctly and when one doesn't. If it doesn't feel like a primer seated correctly, STOP and pull the case out! You don't want to run a case without a primer up into the powder through expander die, because it will drop a powder charge into the case (with a hole in the bottom) and powder will leak out into the primer feed, causing problems until you clean out the spilled powder. When operating the Pro-1000, learn to slow down as you swing the lever up to the top of its stroke. As you swing the lever up, the shellplate rotates 1/3 turn, the case trips the case sensor allowing a primer to slide onto the primer pin, and at the very end of the stroke the primer pin pushes the primer into the case. If you swing the lever too hurriedly, all this happens too quickly and you will frequently get tipped primers (because the case and/or primer are not in line). Slow down a little and when you hear the "click" as the shellplate snaps into position, hesitate for just a second, and then follow through with a firm push on the press lever (primer seating depth is dependent on a firm push on the press lever). This slight hesitation allows time for the primer to slide on top of the pin, and the case to come to rest over the primer pin before being pushed up into the primer pocket. With practice you will be able to feel through the press lever what it feels like when a primer starts into the case correctly, and when it doesn't, and will be able to take corrective steps before you get incorrectly primed cases. Often just backing up slightly (push the lever back down just a little) and then taking another swing will correct the problem and the primer will seat correctly.
