What’s Your TITAN Advantage?….WE RELOAD!
***Your Reloading Specialists***

WOW! November already, one of my favorite months of the year. My 150 grain Soft Points are loaded, my evil black rifle is sighted in and my neighbors are once again treated to the bright orange cloths hanging on the back of my house airing out. All is good and I’m sure that hunting will go better than the fishing did this year! Best of luck to all of you and your hunting crews. There are memories to be made and it doesn’t get any better than this.

Lock-n-Load Powder Measure (pistol and standard metering assemblies)

Case Activated Powder Drop

Cartridge Bin

Primer Pickup Tubes (large and small)

5 Lock-n-Load die bushings

Product Features

All you need are dies and shell plates to start loading with your AP!

Priming System

The Lock-N-Load AP System can be changed from large to small primers as easy as 1-2-3:

  1. Change the primer seater punch.
  2. Change the primer shuttle.
  3. Change the primer feed tube.

Case Activated Powder Drop

Case activated powder drop will dispense a powder charge only when a cartridge case is present.

Automatic Indexing

Each station moves half a stage on the down stroke and half on the up stroke, making for ultra smooth functioning. This process is much smoother than presses that do all their indexing on the down stroke.

INSIGHT OF THE MONTH:

Useful Tid-bits

Why does load data listed in various manufacturers’ loading manuals differ when loading the same cartridge?

The size of the specific firearm chamber, throat dimensions, seating depth, bullet profile, propellant variances and crimping depth can all contribute to variations in load data. For example, the data found in the Hornady loading manual represents actual results derived in the Hornady Ballistics Laboratory. Manufacturers recommend that reloaders always start with the “starting load” and work up cautiously until they achieve the performance they’re looking for. If pressure signs become evident, stop immediately and reduce the load or try another propellant.

What would the velocity of your ammunition be if using a shorter barrel?

Exact velocities can’t be calculated because variables associated with individual chambers and/or barrels affect velocity, but on average, velocity gains or losses will be approximately 25 to 35 feet per second per inch of barrel difference. That doesn’t hold true for every load or every gun. To truly measure performance, the load should be tested over a chronograph.

Why does velocity differ from what’s listed on the ammo box?

In order to comply with industry standards, manufacturers publish data for ammunition derived from testing with Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers Institute (SAAMI) specification test barrels. SAAMI specifies minimum and maximum chamber sizes and certain barrel lengths for certain cartridges. For instance, most rifle test barrels are 24 inches long. Due to variables associated with individual firearm chambers and/or barrels, velocities may be faster or slower than those published in the manuals.

Bullet Weights Not Found In Manuals

If the bullet weight you wish to load is not found in your favorite manual, it is safe to use loads listed for a heavier weight bullet and find a load for the powder you have. Using that load with the lighter bullet simply reduces the pressure, and the velocity remains approximately the same.

Velocity Of Lead Bullets

A good rule of thumb for maximum velocities when using liquid alox is 1400 feet per second for plain base bullets and 2200 feet per second when using gas check bullets. Bore conditions will require you increase or decrease this velocity slightly to prevent leading.
