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.

  2. Attention: We have put together a thread with tips and a tutorial video to help with using the new software. Please take a moment to check out the thread here: Trapshooters.com Tutorial & Help Video.

    Good choice. I just loaded 875 in about an hour and half with no primer hiccups, and three bad shells, Bad shells were caused by old hulls.

    The only issue I have is primers get hung up at the top of the track. It is not a big deal but still a PITA.

    When things are going well, I leave my foot on the pedal switch (electric drive) and alternate adding wads and hulls until it is time to clear the damn primer hang-up or add components.

    "Good used" ones are few and far between. I rarely see these being sold. Once in a while, but not very often. I do, however, have one coming in that has not been used at all. He is adamant about getting the new Patriot.

    You'd be miles and money ahead by simply buying a new one. You never know what the last used owner has done to the machine.

    DON: If you've not already done so, raise the primer tray up as high as you can get it (2 screws on the back side), and then tilt it at a steeper angle. I have a primer hanging up there once in a while and a quick tap of the track solves the problem.

    You could also add the "Flipper" that is on the new Patriot. It mounts to the Wad Carrier Cam Bolt (see below). I think the complete assembly is about $14.00.

    Whiz,

    Thanks for the suggestion. I will try it.

    If it still is not working I will order the "flipper". It is worth $14 to me not to have to tap the track every 15-20 cycles.

    I enjoy loading on both machines but do most of my trap loads on the PW so it gets the most use. I have about 80-100k through it.
