Clean your LPR like ever 20 cases or so.
The best for dwell is (in my opinion) 23 or 22.

Yes I highly recommend it. For LPR settings its what you feel is best for you.
So just play with it. It works great stock any way so don't worry about it too much ;)

LPR cleaning is fairly easy.

LPR maintence is once a year unless your do about 50+ cases. Take the grip out. Undo a set screw. Pull LPR piston out and lube. Reassemble. At present I'm totally rebuilding mine. There a small oring that's a big pain to change. Also becareful and do it on a white towel on a table. Dang shims get lost easily. (wish I followed that advice.)

Your dwell will change with weather, main reg set up ... etc. Start at 25 and fine tune from there.

Yeah ;)
You should do a great job when you relube 50+ cases,
but you should check it every 20 or 25. And just make sure its fine and doesn't need any.

I think you should get it re-annodized poo brown with peanuts lasered into it.

(hint: color choice is a personal matter, and if you can't decide for yourself, you'll never be happy with it.)

You do know that new PM8's are not that readily available anymore. Many places are out of stock.
