texan shot shell reloader
« on: November 14, 2005, 03:20:17 PM »
I have been given a TEXAN shot shell reloader .I have loaded about a 100 shells on it and it seems to work okay. I do not have any information books on it and I am also having trouble with load data for it .
Does anyone use this contraption or is it a piece of junk . I am very new to shot shell loading so I could use all the help I can find.
If this machine is worth the effort and anyone knows where I can find some information and bushings for it please let me know.
If this is a waste of energy let me know also as I have also been given a MEC and couple of LEE loaders but the texan is in like new shape.
Thanks '
Mose

I have three shotshell presses on my bench, a Lee, a MEC and a Dietemeyer. Also a BPC brass base resizer. I also use the BPC wooden cone shape dowel skivers to flare the mouths. I use the best features of each device because each seems to have a particular strength fora particular types of shotshell reloading. I use MICA wadslick lube on the wads, lube the shotshell cases. I usually do not have to wash the shotshells or clean the primer pockets unless there is visual crud therein. Get a few good books about shotshell reloading. It is great and you can produce some fine loads.

Hay Mose.

If your Texan is the big honking shovel handeled progressive model, despair not.
