Thanks for the criticism. I need to work on my writing. I also thought you were about as nice as could be about pointing out the so obvious as were some of the others who commented.
But back to the subject at hand. I'm not anti SWC I just don't find it compatiblewith whyI load. If a guy takes the necessary safety steps he should be using loading SWC with fast burning powders will never present a problem. The point I'm trying to make is most of the mis haps I've seen were due to someone doubling charging with a fast burning powder. And powder measuring devices can be quite useful if the loader is checking his charge every few cases for consistency.
And yes, most of my post was focused on safety and how to avoid dangerous results. But more so for the guy who has just started and is focused on economics and little else. Its that guy who will skip necessary steps and will soon find him or her self in imminent danger as I'm sure you have probably seen some of happen. I'm assuming by your post that you have a good handle on the process and know what I'm talking about. Organization, zero distractions, double checking the data, and making sure to not deviate from such data in any way, shape, or form.
I'm more of the bench rest shooter type who enjoys tuning the highest velocity load possible while staying within a safe pressure range. I also don't like cleaning lead out of my expensive handguns. But I've also come to accept that I am in fact the minority, rather than the majority in the reloading arena. I'm often reminded of that by thosewho shoot SWC stuff and I'm OK with that. I only want those loading like that to take all the steps needed to prevent damaged guns and personal injury. You can imagine how much flack I got when I was teaching reloading classes due to my one sided view.
I recently read a post on a site about a guy who had just bought a .50 cal. BMG and was loading for it without using any of the prescribed steps for doing so. Bottom line, he had seated his bullets at so many different depths, apparently by visual standards, that they wouldn't chamber into his rifle. He then was using a hammer to get the action closed at which time one eventually discharged prior to the bolt being closed. He blew fingers off and suffered other disfiguring injuries and then blamed the gun manufacturer, as though they built a defective rifle?
