They turn off by them selves. In late 1999, we started our first message board. It seems to be heavier duty than my Mec. This was given to me some time back and no manual was to be had. You're not the high Bidder until you've been notified by email that you are. Its real easy to get a double powder charge. Yesterday I found a Texan reloader in the botoom of a chest, still wrapped in plastic with the user manual and warrenty card.
I used sticky velcro to stop this. I cannot afford to do this at this point in time, just have to channel my money in other areas in order to survive. The management works very hard to make sure the community is running the best software, best designs, and all the other bells and whistles. Adjusted the wad pressure to about 90 pounds, and set the final crimp a touch lower. The 400 is terrible, wad insertion at 2 different stations. I think they went under not long afterwards.
This is my first post and I am seeking help in obtaining a manual for the Texan Loadmaster shotshell press. I just last week received a copy of the manual in the mail, however, some of the material inset pictures did not copy well enough to be of use. I look forward to shotshell reloading. I have been given this reloader with, I believe, all the parts for 12 and 20 guage. I have both 12 and 20 guage fittings for it and would like to set it up for 20. I got a barely readable. I also loaded another box of 25 the same way, but with windjammer wads.
If your going to use this press then here are 2 things to remember. Slim Daggone, that's an older one. To start viewing messages, select the forum that you want to visit from the selection below. Works just like Dad's did but I need to adjust it with something other than memory. But my experience with it told me that it was a bit old fashioned and slow to use.
Ads listed in discussion areas are prohibited. I was given a Texan 12 gauge progressive press. Over the years, I've had three progressives but always return to the Texan as the most versatile, reliable and trouble-free machine. I do reload for several sizes of rifle and pistol, and cast my own for them also, so reloading is not new to me. I dont think I had the wad pressure heavy enough, though, as they wanted to sit a little proud after final crimping. I believe it to be a model M.
Thanks for having me on the site, and if anyone can help me in obtaining a copy of the manual or any other material it would be greatly appreciated.

Stephen aka Coyote killer lived in dallas this was my first intro to shot shell loading the fw texan. I aquired a house from my girlfrield's uncle and he was quite a collector.
That shut him right up as thats about the best he ever does, too! These presses were produced until the early 1980s. I recently stumbled across a Texan turret press 110?? It worked, too standard dies and made me many a round of ammo. All Auctions are conducted in Pacific Time. Looks like I need to get a 410 press and some empty casings and load a couple hundred rounds of 410 for hunting! I have a reloading press, and the holder where you slide the shell holders in broke, And was wondering if anyone knew where to get parts, It is an old press with 7 die holders, which you can rotate by hand, It probably weighs 30 lbs. Care to buy us a beer? I've had a couple of these, still have and use one regularly.
If I understand it correctly, the hull goes into a cylinder and stays there until the final stageat which time it presses it out. As the title suggests a Texan Loadmaster model D manual is needed. I have a seperate Texan press that is used for depriming and possibly priming? I already have the press and would like to use it. . Anyone have any experience with the Texan turret reloading press? I guess time will tell. I bought the press more than thirty years ago, receiving no manual or paperwork with it. Good luck on finding a manual, but these presses are so simple you can probably get by fine without one.
