Robin, the Titan Crew and I are all doing well. Summer and all that goes with it is finally here and the only problem I can see is finding enough time to do everything as much as I’d like to. I have all summer to ‘get ‘er done’ so……ALL IS GOOD. I hope life is the same with you.

I’m an old dog and I have been around firearms and shooting my whole life. There aren’t too many times anymore when something comes along that makes me step back and open my eyes. This is definitely one of these things. Like very many of you I decided awhile ago that I needed to get a conceal carry license to protect myself and loved ones from the ever increasing threats in our world today. I now realize that this license and my time at the range are just the first small steps in my intended goal of self defense. There’s a whole lot more to it and I’m very grateful to have discovered this now, before I actually need it. I want to share the following link with you. CONCEALED CARRY UNIVERSITY If you conceal carry or plan to in the future I recommend watching the second video on this webpage. The valuable information in this promotional video is well worth the time it takes to view it. I have since purchased this very reasonably priced 7 Disk Course and it is everything I hoped it would be and much more.Titan Reloading and Concealed Carry University are not affiliated in any way. I just believe this knowledge should be in the hands of as many ‘Good Guys’ as possible.

Pro 1000 Priming Explained

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 shell plate 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 shell plate 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.
