I have been reloading 40 S&W for about ten years now , i have been thru many of the ups and downs of reloading for two different guns of the same caliber , as i use a Para P16-40 and my wife has a Bul M5 ..both in 40 S&W ..
I would like to share my latest project , i had just completed a few days of solid bullet head casting , i cast a 200 grain swc , i was stearing at the RCBS size lube machine and at the 5000 head pile of cast heads saying to myself , hmmm i wish there was a way of making sizeing and lubing easier or at least faster ..
Well after a few days of throwing ideas around i went to go see a mate who uses pneumatics at his factory for making shoes and asked him if i could get a meduim size pneaumatic piston and foot pedal ..
Well once i had that in hand i went to see my mate who is one of those engineering problem solvers guys , he can look at a problem for days but comes out with the simplest solution to the problem , well he came up with a real dandy .
I am absolutely loving it , we attached a frame to the RCBS lube machine and removed the handle , the piston is driven by my compressor that is sitting outside that i use for spraypainting and stuff .. and what can i say , it's great , pictures i will attach and i am just trying to upload a little video that i took from my phone ..
Let me know what you think ..
