Here are the five most common Common Reloading Problems that people make when reloading their ammo. To put it simply, don’t do these things. …

Too much lubrication: Most new reloaders will put too much lubricant on the bullets. The result is they’ll find their bullets will not seat all the way into the casing.

This is because excess lubricant oozes out of the case as you seat each bullet. Stop! You’re using too much!

Although it is tempting to use a little extra lube when reloading, too much lube can cause problems.

The first problem that can be caused by excess lubrication is the creation of extra static electricity which will attract dust and cause it to stick to the cartridge case making it unusable.

The solution to this problem is simple, simply wipe off any excess lubrication and blow the case out with compressed air.

Another problem that can be caused by using too much lubricant is the cartridges becoming sticky and not being able to eject properly.

This can also cause malfunctions in your firearm such as a jam or stove pipe.

After loading, you should check each round for excess lubrication before you load them into your firearm.

If there is an excessive amount of lubricant on the cartridge then simply wipe it off with a clean dry cloth or paper towel before loading it into your magazine or cylinder.

As for how much lubricant you should use, we recommend using only enough lubricant to cover the outside of the bullet and allow for proper seating.

If you are loading lead bullets then we recommend using 1 small drop for every 50 bullets, if you are loading jacketed bullets then we recommend using 1 small drop for every 100 bullets.

Cartridge cases that are too long: You need to pay close attention to this one. If you happen to have a cartridge case that is too long for your chamber, you will be able to see daylight between your barrel and cartridge during firing. The bullet may even stick out of the end of your barrel!

1.) Your back hurts from carrying so much extra weight around all day long. 2.) Your gun and gear are digging into you constantly. 3.) Your clothes don’t fit quite right anymore. 4.) You’re tired. 5) Clothes are too uncomforted.

Here are five pains all concealed carriers feel, and what you can do about them.

Tightness in the belt line. Feeling snug is a good thing, but feeling like you’re being hugged by an anaconda is not. It’s impossible to quantify exactly how much you should be adjusting your retention without feeling the gun dig into your body.

The best way to find the sweet spot is to test different levels of adjustment until you find one that gives you the right amount of support and snugness.

If you wear a tucked-in shirt, this could also be a matter of your shirt size. If there’s too much material to conceal, try a looser shirt or go with an outside-the-waistband holster option where it won’t matter if the shirt is tucked in or not.

Comfort issues with certain garments. It’s not just gun belts that can cause problems when carrying concealed.

If you’re having issues with other articles of clothing (like T-shirts or sweatshirts) rubbing on your firearm, try adding a layer between your body and the gun or holster.

With an estimated 5 million concealed-carry permits in the United States, it’s clear that many people are opting for the convenience of carrying a gun on their person.

If you’re thinking about getting a concealed-carry permit, you should be aware of the safety issues that may arise from carrying your gun with you. Here are five pains all concealed carriers feel.

Carrying a loaded gun can be uncomfortable. You might feel as if you’re sticking out, so you may try to make your holster less noticeable.

However, when you carry your gun in a way that is overly subtle or attempts to hide it, such as placing it in your jacket belt loop, this can cause problems. Concealed-carry holsters should be worn at all times and in plain view.

A gun should never be tucked into your waistband without a sturdy holster designed to keep the gun firmly in place.

This gives you quick access to your weapon in emergency situations and makes it much harder for someone to steal it from you.

It also keeps the gun from printing through clothing so no one knows that you’re armed and more importantly, that you’re not armed. Carrying a heavy weapon can cause back pain.


When you first start carrying a concealed weapon, there will be some pains that you may have to bear. These are the five most common ones that you will encounter:

1. The weight of the gun.

2. A sore spot on your hip.

3. Get used to shooting with your dominant hand.

4. Your pants pockets not being deep enough to hold all of your magazines, or they do not have enough room for the extra magazine carrier or speed loader carrier or a pocket knife that you need with it.

5. Getting used to drawing your gun out at a moment’s notice when pulling your pants up and down, taking a shower, putting on or taking off shoes or boots, fighting through the heavy brush while hunting, etc.

Try these solutions out and see if they help alleviate any of the pains that you may be experiencing from carrying concealed!
