Have you reloaded steel cases? If so what were your results?

Brass plated steel cases?

On another forum they were talking about brass plated steel cases in 9mm. I dug out the heavy duty magnet and after case fishing through about 4k of spent brass I found these 5 S&B cases. When polished they look exactly like a regular brass case, but they are highly magnetic and wouldn't make go...

What I have is a lee loadmaster, perfect powder measure with all 4 disc's, 45acp dies including the Decapping die and factory crimp die, gen 2 and gen 3 primer trough's primer blast shield and large case feeder and c...

I will be selling my loadmaster, set up for 45 acp, in the very near future. It has been a perfect Reloader in 45 for me, even with the small primer. I will not make that claim with 9mm! I have the large case feeder, perfect powder measure with all 4 discs etc. Let me know if you are interested. Craig

The crazy thing is that I went through this brass, twice! I think that I got a little lazy towards the end of the sorting process. After going through 1000 pieces and only finding a couple of small primer cases I just got careless. I think before switching back to 9mm I will set up to deprime and re...

45ACP large primer in a small primer pocket and a discovery

I have had more trouble with loading (priming) 9mm on the Loadmaster that I finally gave up and switched to 45ACP, which has been more reliable. Tonight, while using the gen 3 primer assembly, I had a primer go bang! I initially thought, finally after about 500 rounds a failure, and a spectacular on...

I tried the gen 3B primer on 9mm, very unhappy with my results. I received the gen 3 large and small primer trough's in the same package, then 2 days later received the gen 3B small trough with a note to throw away the previous one. The large primer for 45acp has been 100% though.

I've tried the Gen 3 revised primer trough with 9mm with terrible results. 6 failures out of 25 rounds, a combination of sideways and one upside down primers. None skipped though, I guess that's good news? I've had great results with the large primer 45acp though, 100% out of about 300 rounds. Craig

I just received my gen 3 primers, in both large and small, after complaining to Lee about the unacceptable failure rate of the gen 2 primer feeder's. I actually received a separate gen 3 small primer feeder today with a note that the original gen 3 had a defect and that there is a new design! Call i...

My powder vibrator and a question

I decided that the best improvement I could make on my loadmaster would be to add a cell phone vibrator to the powder drop to try and achieve more consistent charges. I took a couple of idea's from zmmnm3's powder vibrator and davenc's limit switch adaptation. Here's an overall view of the system. N...

Just finished a batch of 300 45 acp rounds with not one single primer failure of any sort. I don't know if 45 is easier to load/prime than 9 mm on the loadmaster, but I am very pleased with the new primer trough.

I recently converted my loadmaster from 9mm to 45ACP. I ordered the new primer setup from lee and and took a few pictures comparing the new large primer feed to the old small primer feed. I notice 3 changes between the two, but I don't know what the old large primer looked like so this is not defini...

Crimped primers are mainly a product of a military, and more recently police, need to keep all parts of the round together when loaded into an automatic fire weapon. The jarring of an AR15 or H&K MP5, or similar weapon, in full auto mode can cause some issues with round components coming apart a...

I'm giving a big thumbs up to the primer over-spring! I loaded about 400 9mm rounds for an upcoming match and was appalled at the number of sideways, dimpled or skipped primers. I then had one primer go off which mad a big mess of things. I found an ink pen spring that fit over the stock Lee spring,...

I have a padded bar stool that I use for most everything else, but I just cannot sit while making bullets. I have tried and tried, but I just end up standing anyway. I am going to look for one of the anti fatigue floor mats that they sell for chefs, but the price has to be right.
