We went thru this a couple of weeks ago. If you have the rifle charging die, it will crimp the case mouth closed so it will be a chrome plated bitch to get the bullet into the case mouth. There's a spring in the Auto Drum that is strong enough to hold up a corner of your car, and you have to compres...

Link appears to be broken . God bless Wyr Yes, yes it is broken. Only alternative is to go to the Lee Precision website and see if it's still floating around...not much hope for the human race is there? I'm gonna have a couple of drinks, no, lots of them. Only thing that will numb the pain....

I shoved a support under my bench top, right under the LM, so it didn't bounce around. That was pretty obvious the press needs to stay rock still, and with me yanking on the lever, it sure wasn't rock still. Other thing is to try different speeds on the lever and watch what happens; both good or bad...

Better, black and white tend to be best. I still remember some web pages from 15 years ago; when most web designers were still dropping acid on a regular basis. I saw the annealer, I've been looking at one for a couple of years. One thing I've wondered about after seeing videos, would it be possible...

Understood, but if I'm going to the trouble of reloading using match grade bullets, trimming the cases to just the rite length, uniforming primer pockets and flash holes, I want the weight dead nuts on, not plus or minus a tenth of a grain. I don't worry about it with pistol too much, but rifle I w...

Those large stick powders are used in big rifle cases; 40+ grains. So if you're .4grain off, that's 1%. It's not something I get excited about. Even less of an error if you're in the 50+ grain area.....

.4 grain is a big deal with a 4grain pistol charge, 10%. Try to keep the error in perspective.

If I'm using range pick up brass, I deprime with a steel rod with a .062"diameter needle bearing in the end. Put the brass on my block of oak with a hole in it and fish around to find the flash hole. If I have to fish too long, I take a good look and it's almost always a berdan primer.... I've ...

I thought about that, but the last post there was march 6, so I figured more eyes would see it on this forum.

Reconditioned turret press $89.50

The Lee factory store has reconditioned Turret presses for $89.50. That's about $25 less than most retailers.

Those 2 links show the same part number, but the images are definitely different. Lee's site looks like just a cylinder, Titan's shows it with the step to a larger size (this is the one I have, also). My problem with the Auto Drum is the neck of the 223 cases get "crushed" (rounded inward...

I'm using tbe lee long charging die 90194 with the insert that came with it. I'm assuming that insert is the correct one That insert is not the one for .223. It will let powder spill around the case mouth. You need to order insert # SE1253 which is made just for the .22 cal. Worked for me! Look at ...

The powder measure that comes with the LM works; it's the gotta have a cast iron measure clowns that cause all the problems for Lee and the users. If I could find and eliminate those losers, the world would be a better place...cast iron bullets to the head! Just kidding; sort of...

Of course it feels 'easier'; the friction between the o-ring and the lock nut and die is what keeps the nut from rotating on the die. Just leave the O-rings alone, they're needed.

http://www.300blktalk.com/forum/ If you can't find it there, it probably don't exist. Big issue with 300 is finding the powders to cycle a subsonic; AA1680 is probably the best, but AA was only selling a couple of tons a year before the 300 came out. It was designed for reloading 7.62x39 ammo, but w...
