I did 3 short video on how to prep brass using basic tools. If you are a volume shooter, you can now buy tools to make these process much more faster and effortless. However, if your like me who still enjoy doing it one brass at a time, then you'll enjoy these. I also included a segment on how to measure bullet runout. This video is also useful for the beginner handloader. So here they are guys. Enjoyhttp://www.youtube.c...feature=relatedhttp://www.youtube.c...feature=related

The movement doesn't matter much... it's the swing of the dial. The farther apart they are, the bigger the run-out.

Thanks for the videos.. I learn't some stuff and they got me thinking that I should be paying more attention to detail in case preparation for my hunting ammo.

Oz, you're welcome. Remember you do case preparation only once and you don't have to do it again until you replace the brass.

Good Videos there Desert Fox - I had you figured on the wrong continent entirely based on your screen name! I haven't dealt with checking runout yet, even though I have the equipment. I should check some of my .204 and see what it's doing. That's the longest range cartridge I have besides my Sharps 45-70...

 If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally,… you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

Yes, I do! As a matter of fact, I'll be making a short video next on how to anneal brass.

What do you do if the bullet is too for out of specs, or what is the limit that you will keep the bullets?

Anything over .003 is segregated and use for practice.

It's the same except on smaller round like the 223. I do however uniformed primer pocket, trimmed brass to the same length and sorted brass by weight.
