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.

    Hornady told me they no longer make the #384 powder bushing. Does anyone have an extra one they want to sell? Thanks.

    Do they still make a 383, 382, 381, or 385, 386, 387?
    If they do, I really don't think you'll measure much of a difference. I rarely use the bushing that's called out for a specific powder drop. It's usually within .010 of the bushing suggested. Also, it will vary due to humidity etc. There's also the factor of the finish inside the bushing. A slicker (polished) inside diameter will drop more powder than a bushing with a rougher inside diameter.

    If your new to reloading - welcome to a great hobby. A few tenths of a grain isn't much of a variation, especially in shotgun shell reloading, and if your not reloading to a max pressure. If it's a load that has a published pressure below 9500 psi, I wouldn't worry too much about hitting the exact powder drop weight. But to be safe and to start out with good practice, stay a little on the low side.

    Hornady bushings are in .003" increments. The bushing number (ID) is evenly divisible by 3. That means they did make 381, 384, and 387 bushings.

    I always had access to a lathe and a hone and made my own if needed. Thanks for the info skeeljc. Every .003 does make more sense and I didn't know that, I've never purchased one before and when I bought my press I got about 30 bushings with it.

    If you've got 30 bushings, then surely you could take one of the smaller ones and enlarge it a little to throw the weight of powder you want. Keep in mind that even if some bushing chart should recommend that particular bushing for a certain weight of powder, that doesn't mean that that bushing will throw exactly that weight of powder. More than likely that bushing will throw a lighter powder charge than the chart would indicate.

    I think that if a person has about a dozen powder bushings of various sizes, he should be pretty well set for most reloading applications. Remember, a few tenths of a grain of powder (one way or the other) doesn't really matter much in the big picture.
