    A few weeks there was a tool listed for putting over the end of shells on a P-W when they are mushroomed. Can't find it now, anybody remember the name of the thread?

    You can also use a 3/8" wooden dowel pin about 1-1/4" long and place on top of shell and cycle machine.

    I've used a piece of 1/2" dowel for years. Now that the dies are removable I can even tap it with a mallet!

    I used to use a square box knife to cut the shell at the top of the shell holder then a shop vac to pick up all the powder and shot (separated later) and then knock the base out with a dowel.

    When using the dowel removel system you must first make sure you turn off your powder and shot to prevent a double charge.

    I've been trying to get some time to make those handy little devices to aid in the punching-out of malformed loads.

    Now, Gary Bulley in Montana, here on this site as the "THE UNLOADER," is making them and even has a picture of one. It is what I have made. He is selling his at a very low cost.

    I'll drop him a note to respond here.

    You don't do it in the press, STOS. You pull the die from the Grivory turret at the last station, put it into the handy die holder and use the dowel to pop the shell out on the bench.

    I use a ΒΌ" drive 3/8" socket, set it on the shell in station 8, and press the foot switch on the hydraulic. Works like a charm every time... I just have to dig out the socket.

    I don't even bother with removing the die and using the knockout plate. You can't ge the die & shell out of #8 anyway, half the time.

    When loading "experinced" 28 and 410 hulls you can get some interesting messed up hulls.
