ammunition and handling powder and primers is inherently dangerous. Just as in shooting,
accidents do happen. These accidents are nondiscriminatory; they happen to both the novice
and the experienced reloader.
We have done everything we know how to make your machine as safe as possible.
We cannot, however, guarantee your complete safety. To minimize your risk, use common
sense when reloading and follow these basic rules:
Never smoke or allow anyone to smoke in your reloading area. Never work with
open flames near your reloading equipment.
Never force primers. If they get stuck in the operation of the machine,
disassemble and gently remove the obstruction.
Never attempt to de-prime live primers - eventually one will go off. When it does,
it will detonate the others in the spent primer cup. De-priming live primers is the single
most dangerous thing you can do in reloading and can cause grave injury or death.
3. SAFETY DEVICES:
Do not remove any safety devices from your machine.
Do not modify your machine in any way.
4. EYE AND EAR PROTECTION:
Always wear safety glasses and hearing protectors while operating your machine. If
you don't have them, get them. Failure to do so could leave you blind or deaf. Insist that
anyone else in your reloading area does likewise.
5. RECOMMENDED LOADS:
Load only recommended loads from reputable manuals and/or manufacturer's
Since Dillon Precision has no control over the type or amount of components used
with our equipment, we assume no responsibility for results obtained from
||the use of such components.
6. CHECK YOUR WORK:
Check each round you load. Visually inspect each round as it is being loaded. Load
no more than 50 rounds between thorough inspections of finished rounds.
7. RELOADING AREA:
Keep your components safely stored. Clear your work area of loose powder, primers
and other flammables before loading.
8. PAY ATTENTION:
Never reload when distractions are present, i.e., TV, radio, children. If you are
interrupted while loading, it is especially important to check each and every hull in the
machine to ensure that the appropriate operation has been completed before proceeding.
Treat your reloading equipment with all the respect and attention you owe your guns. They
can be equally dangerous.
9. BE PATIENT:
Our reloading equipment is conservatively rated and you should have no trouble
achieving the published rates with a smooth, steady hand. If something doesn't seem right,
stop, look and listen. If the problem or the solution isn't obvious, call us and we'll get
you back on track.
The reloading bench is no place to get into a hurry.
10. LEAD WARNING:
Be sure to have proper ventilation while handling lead components or when shooting
lead shot. Lead is known to cause birth defects, other reproductive harm and cancer. Wash
your hands thoroughly after handling anything made of lead.
If your machine does not perform to your expectations, or if you are having
technical difficulties, give us a call at 800.233.4570 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
