Components are available but the constant price increases are putting a damper on my shooting. I may have to go back to a single stage just to keep reloading.

I was in an area gun store yesterday and they had CCI small pistol for 29.95, limit of one brick. I have been paying 45.00 for Winchester small pistol. Darn near too expensive to reload.

The case feeder does work with the 308. You just have to replace the adjustment bolt with a longer one to clear the case. As for the ought 6 I don't know as I don't load that but believe Motopic has the right idea on handfeeding them.

Good luck on that one. I belong to a club 4 miles from my home where we have a rifle and pistol range as well as archery ranges and a 2 acre pond which is stocked 2 to 4 times a year. No initiation fee, no range fee and no land fee. Dues are 120.00 the first year and drop to 60.00 after that. It is ...

What a stroke of inspiration. That has always been a drawback to the 1000.

Sure. You have to get a universal charging die. It comes with the actuator rod. I can't say if the double disk kit would work on your powder but I really doubt it. Good luck and enjoy.

Not really. I use the Perfect Powder measure for .308 and the ProAuto doubled for the 7.62 x 39. I did have to put in a longer bolt in the case feeder to allow the 308 to clear. I do prep mine before I load, sizing, cleaning and if crimped primer pockets swaging them. As I really got carried away lo...

I have two LoadMasters. They darn sure aren't spotless and you won't find any mods on either one. I load 40, 38 and 9 luger on one and on the other 45ACP, 7.62x39 and .308 for my semi-auto saiga. Loaded 10s of thousands on them in the last few years and they remain virtually trouble free. Attention ...

Keep in mind that government cannot ban any gun without violating the constitution. We can choose to let them or we can remember that the last revolution occurred when the British decided to confiscate arms.

The NRA suggestion is simplistic but I think one thing that is being forgotten is that we have been at war for 12 years. We undoubtedly have many teachers, school administrators and school employees who are already combat trained infantrymen. Does anyone doubt that these people are capable of resist...

I put all pistol brass that I load on my loadmasters in a painters tray and spray with Hornady One-Shot. It reduces the friction and stress when you are loading. And yes, I do use carbide dies. I have loaded 10s of thousands of rounds with the loadmasters and have so few issues it isn't funny. I hav...

I don't have much trouble seeing the difference but as some 45 has crimped primers I run all my large primered 45 cases through a dillon swager which catches any small primered ones I missed. I give all the small primered cases to a few buddies so I don't have to separate it again.

None at all. They didn't last long as it was a real PITA to get a round out that had a tipped primer in it. Threw mine away and got the old design.

Easy. Drill 2 one inch holes through your bench under the primer collection pockets and put a container under them to catch the spent primers.
