1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Looking to possibly buy a new reloader. Thinking about a Ponsness Warren. Since I don't know much about these machines, would like a recommendation as to which one to buy between the 2000 or the 800+. What are the differences?
    Thanks for any comments/recommendations/information,
    Mike

    I have a Platinum 2000 and I like it. I have not seen or used the 800+.

    I had the 800+ and it was a competent and strong reloader. My understanding is the 2000 is much harder to change the system out to a different gauge, and the 800+ is much easier and quicker to change over. The 2000 does not have the star gear, so you don't get a "click" when indexing the unit. Otherwise, I believe they are about the same, most parts/accessories would interchange. Last I looked they were the same price. Wisdom on TS.COM suggests the 800+ would have slightly better resale.

    My strong suggestion is contact Whiz White at SW Supply. His contact info is on this site as he is a sponsor, and the only place you should consider ordering a unit from. Anything and everything you need to know starts and stops with Jim White, along with his great support.

    yeah... the 800+

    I use it for one ounce singles loads, and 1300 fps hcp loads. An I use good STS hulls. The res8ulting finished shells give yo a ton of confidence. Adn too... I chrono my loads and yo would come away form that thinking that PW800+ is the way to go.

    Click my above link and download the article about the differences of the two machines.

    Personally, I prefer the 800+, but, honestly, both models do a fine job.
