MAY 2015 NEWSLETTER
This month Robin and I would like to point out a few features on our website that will help you navigate quickly to the products you’re looking for and also calculate the shipping costs for an order.
The first feature is the “Search” engine located on the upper right corner of the website. With this tool you can search for a Lee part number which will result in the item’s listing appearing below the “Search Criteria” for selection. Click on the listing picture to go directly to the listing for ordering. If you are not sure what the part number is you can also search by item name (i.e. powder funnel, dies etc.) and then scroll through the items that appear on the lower portion of the page for selection. When you search for an item name everything related to that product will appear. A great way to narrow down the results is to type in a caliber (i.e. 223, 30/06, 45 ACP etc.) which will produce all the items related to the caliber. Be sure to select “All Categories” in the field below “Keywords” so the whole website will be searched.
The second feature is the “Site Map” located at the bottom of the “Information” area on the left side of the website. The Site Map shows the category structure of our website on one page and allows you to go directly to any category on the site with one click of the mouse. Most of the RED text on our website (except page titles) are actually links that when “Clicked On” go directly to the subject of the text.
The third feature is the “Shipping Estimator” located on the right side of the website below the “Search” and “Shopping Cart”. Add all the items you want to order into the shopping cart and then, rather than going to checkout, select your Country, State/Region and Postal Code in the shipping estimator and click “Estimate”. This will return the cost of shipping and the results are displayed directly below the Shipping Estimator. Depending on the size of your screen, you may have to scroll down to see these results. If you are logged into your account you must clear the shopping cart if you choose not to order. If you are not logged into an account you can simply abandon the shopping cart and all will be cleared.
The final feature is for the many friends we have made all over the world. Located directly below the Shipping Estimator on the right side of the website is a “Translator”. With this tool you can select from many languages and convert the entire website to that language.
We are truly enjoying all the friends we have made through Titan Reloading and look forward to many more. Feel free to contact us. When possible, please email us rather than call. Due to our limited phone system and staff we are able to respond to your questions quicker via email. Please include your full name or order ID number with any order inquiries. 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 . Check us out on Google+ and Facebook .
Dennis / Titan Reloading
This months featured products are two new items that Titan Reloading is manufacturing to make your reloading experience a little easier.
TITAN TUBE HARNESS
The TITAN TUBE HARNESS is an ABS plastic “3D Printed” product that clips onto the 4 feed tubes of the Lee Case Feeders and the Lee Bullet Feed Multi-Tube Adapters. This product holds the feed tubes securely making the Case Collator easier to install and remove from the feed tubes. It also secures the tubes of the Multi-Tube Bullet Feed Adapters and allows you to install the tubes loaded with bullets as the tubes snap into the harness from the side.
TITAN PRIMER CHUTE
The TITAN PRIMER CHUTE is an ABS plastic “3D printed” part that fits snugly into the base of a Lee Pro 1000 or Value Turret Press. The chute funnels spent primers down to a spout where they drop through a 3/4″ hole drilled through the bench top. The spout accepts a PVC Tube (sold separately) that holds the spent primers. With the Titan Primer Chute you will never need to unbolt the press to empty the spent primers again.
INSIGHT OF THE MONTH:
Selecting a Disk to get the Desired Powder Charge
The Auto Disk powder measures use a system called Volume Metered Density (VMD) to dispense powder. The cavities in the disk have a number assigned to them which is actually the volume of the cavity in cubic centimeters. The powder companies provide a VMD number or value for each type of powder. If you multiply the number of grains you wish to dispense times the VMD value the answer is the theoretical volume in cubic centimeters that are necessary to hold that grain weight of powder. Or grain weight x VMD = cubic centimeters. CLICK HERE to find the Powder Manufacture’s VMD’s.
Once you know the number of cubic centimeters it takes to hold the powder charge you wish to dispense, you can choose the proper disks. You choose the disk combination that is closest in size to the value of the formula without going over. ALWAYS CHECK your charges with a scale to verify that you are achieving the desired Load Data grain weight.
