HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA!

Here we are, July already. This year's crop of wild birds are as big as their parents and most are on their own now. The cycle of life is amazing to behold. The flowers with their colors, the sound of motorcycles rumbling by and the smell of fresh cut grass all mean that summer is right on time.

Robin and I are going to the lake at the end of this month. The website will be available for ordering products but shipment of orders will be delayed until our return. We will get caught up quickly and we will call for the big trucks, it's all good.

We are truely enjoying all the friends we have made through Titan Reloading and look forward to many more. Feel free to contact us. Service and Support is our top priority. As always, you will find many answers to questions in the "FAQ" and "Help Videos" areas of our website www.titanreloading.com

INSIGHT OF THE MONTH:

Powder Measure Return Systems

Auto Disk Powder Measures

The Auto Disk and Pro Auto Disc powder measures are meant to work with any Powder Through Expanding die that Lee Produces. The system has two ways in which the measure is reset after dropping a powder charge. It depends upon what type of press you purchased as to what return system came in your kit.

If you received your measure as part of a progressive loading kit, you would have received a bead chain that fastens between the lever on the measure and a hole on the carrier. The chain system is preferred when loading progressively as the chance of a double charge is nearly eliminated. As the case actuates the measure to drop the powder charge, it is not reset until the carrier returns to the bottom of the press. As this is done, the case has already moved to the next station.

If you received your measure as part of a Turret Press kit, you would have received a different style "F" lever that contains a return spring. This spring fastens to the front of the body of the measure and the notch on the back side of the return lever. Since the design of the Turret Press moves the turret instead of a shell plate, the bead chain return system would not work. The return spring resets the measure just as soon as the freshly charged case comes out of the powder through expander die.

Perfect Powder Measure

The Perfect Powder Measure must use the bead chain return because the distance the lever has to move from the dump position back to the fill position is to great to use a spring system. The Perfect Powder Measure mounts to the Universal Charging Die on progressive presses only. The Perfect Powder Measure will not work on a turret press because the dies rotate so the bead chain return cannot be attached to the press ram.
