Double Charge

Rotating the shell plate back because a primer didn't seat then getting a double charge of powder as it filled a case the second time. I visually saw it had too much powder but..... I now have a RCBS powder locking die in my Hornady Lock n Load. "NOT FOR PUBLIC DISSEMINATION" :-)

Seems like I am getting dumber.

I loaded some ammo without primers.
My first clue was powder leaking out the primer pockets.
I also did that once, but fortunately I was loading pistol rounds with Clays. The flakes are so big they won't fall through the flash hole. So to compound the stupidity, I then primed the rounds (very gingerly) with my Lee hand primer. I was lucky and got away with it. Just too lazy to pull the bullets and start over.
