Where did you find the bismuth loads with Steel powder?
A few folks on here, I verified it through a few folks I know who pressure test rounds.
I'm a little confused never needing to study GAEP tools being completely happy w/PR tools. Might be a stupid question, but, in this thread I see pics of shells processed with the GAEP tools and am wondering; do those tools finish fold crimp on the drill press looking similar to fold crimps commonly seen on a reloading press? OR are the shells (depicted in this thread) loaded on a regular press then ran through the GAEP?
Yes, I load my ammo both Lead and Nontox on Mec Machines , some with Mec jr's and progressives , then , I take them over to the Drill Press and run
them through the Gaep Finishing tool , it only takes a minute or two per/box ! The consistency I get in velocity is well worth it (to me) along with the
uniformity of each shells crimp and wad pressure ! Just saying
what does it do to them?
The way I have experienced using it , is , with more consistent loads , shell to shell , the velocity and PSI is so close , it makes me a better shooter !
The gap I see in leading targets of different speeds with a load that's so uniform , allows me to adjust to the conditions ! I've always tried to improve
my reloads over factories ( 90 fps , SAAMI standards) even with hulls shot multiple times ! Just saying
Well I guess what's the point reloading if you don't try to improve your loads, especially for hunting.
I never took any of that into consideration though I do see how they could improve the way your shells feed in pump guns and autoloaders. I like the look of those.
What do you do? Just touch them with it?
So what does it mean when the roll crimp is too tight? Am I starting out with too much plastic above my shot card, and creating too big of a roll?
Two things are happening when my process of reloading using the Gaep tool . First and foremost is ALL my 2 3/4" , 3" or 3 1/2" shells are the same length
with the same Wad pressure , the other is , the crimps have the same tightness along with rounded noses for easy feeding into the guns ! The benefit is I have
the best Looking Reloads in the marsh....and I shoot these with pride , same as the ones I load for L o n g distance targets in Games I shoot !
