                                   OCTOBER 2013 NEWSLETTER

Well, Fall is officially here. The kids are back in school, the days are getting shorter and yes, the leaves are beginning to change colors. This can only mean one thing to many of us, hunting season is right around the corner. 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.

We have added a new item to our product line called the Grip-n-Pull bullet puller. It comes in three models, the Pistol, the Standard Rifle and the Large Rifle. These pullers allow you to pull the bullets and reuse them along with the powder in the case. Check them out on our website by CLICKING HERE.

INSIGHT OF THE MONTH:

Auto Disk Powder Leaking

The only powders that give the Auto Disk Powder Measure problems are Accurate #5, Hodgdon H-11 or Winchester 296. All three of these are very fine ball powders, and can get between the disk and the hopper. The fix is to order the Pro Auto Disk update it. 

If your measure is leaking with any other powders, it’s most likely because of excessive clearance between the hopper and the disk. As with all mechanical devices, enough clearance has to be built into the device to allow movement of the components. If you are experiencing leakage, one fix is to reduce the amount of clearance between the hopper and the disk by carefully sanding down the risers that the hopper is mounted to. Place a disk between the risers, with a piecce of scotch tape on top, and use a file or sandpaper attached to a flat surface, and file/sand until contact is made with the scotch tape.

Auto Disk Powder Leakage Fix

Remove Hopper and Disk to file or sand the tops of the 2 risers.

Put a layer of scotch tape on top of the disk and carefully file or sand the risers.
