quantity of shot you are using) and a 'Roll turnover' head in an electric
drill to roll the top of the case onto the top card wad to retain the
Accurate scales are a MUST for measuring small charges of powder.
These can be used in conjunction with powder measures using volume (like
Lees inexpensive powder measure

for reclosing the star crimps on, say, Winchester cases.
The majority of cases will require closing with a Cardboard top wad
and a roll turnover.
These roll turnovers can be achieved with a special attachment that
goes in an electric drill and is quickly applied to the open end of
the completed case to roll the open end down onto the top wad.
