NOTE 2: If you are not seeing any adjustment changes on your shell plate when adjusting timing with ram at the bottom your detents on the bottom of your shell plate have too much tension on them, this can also cause harsh snaps into detent causing powder spillage. With your shell plate upside down on your bench simply use a hammer and a small punch to (LIGHTLY) tap the detent balls to adjust the pressure on them. This will allow you to have a small amount of free play in the shell plate for more precise adjustment of your shell plate timing. 

 

NOTE: Once you time your shell plate using our tools your press is now set properly for all calibers your reload not just the caliber used for setup using our tools. You do NOT need a set for each caliber you load. 

 

This price saves you $$$ off buying all the tools separatly.

 

Our tools take all of the guess work out of the set up and when performed per instructions your press will run like a precision swiss time piece.
