    Thanks I made a shell holder that is a 2x4 with a 1 1/4 in hole lined with a piece of rubber and cut in half long ways. Put small henge on one end hook on other. Locks shell tight but think drill may spin too fast. I am thinking of getting a new drill press that will get down to 200 rpms,see if that helps.Eddie have you tried the overshot wads that BP make? they are suspposed to break up before they leave the barrel. rick

    Yes I have played with the concept. The roll crimper that I use is of the old style. Have never tried the BP one.

    In playing with these loads I have come to the conclusion that it was more the quality of shot and loadings that distorted the old patterns rather than over shot discs.
