Hi Tony, this is the direct link to your video:

Please tell me more about your homemade BP items, powder and caps. Is that Walker new, or have you had it awhile?

Regards,
Richard

Been makin powder for about two years. Got it down now to where it has about the same velocity as Swiss. Not quit as clean but about all I use.Been makin caps about the same time frame. Been experimenting with this new primer compound. So far it has been great. Works in everything from .31 To 10 guage,#11 caps.Have About 600 made at present time, Gonna let um hang out and see if they hold up in the long run.Some day I might do a vid on makin them with this new compound.
