Right several things happen at once with a progressive. As far as accuracy goes it doesn't really suffer if you're throwing charges anyway. Most progressive setups I've seen don't use a powder...

Progressive presses are nice since you can load faster than with a single stage. If you plan on shooting and loading a lot you may want to think about one. It would probably be 3-4 times as fast as a...

I would recheck your Ph, 6.2 is way too low. Your TA looks good, with an initial TA of 240 3 gallons shouldn't have pushed it that low.

I've never added acid at all. Just a little bit of salt, 1/4 cup in about 2 gallons. I just hot bath the jars and make sure they seal. I've never had any go bad either.

I like a gas range, they get hotter faster, and they cool off faster too. When you turn off the gas the heat source is gone, you don't have to wait for the burner to cool off. It does take a little...

No, the bleach and water won't hurt the concrete. I'd use a 5:1 mix, 5 parts water to 1 part bleach. That should kill about anything.

It shouldn't, they're usually the same chemicals, just lower concentrations for the smaller volumes of water used in spas.
