Re: Auto drum

Check the knob that holds in the drum. I had mine too tight and had a similar problem.

Received and installed a new Auto-Drum Powder Measure on Friday. So far I believe I will like it after it gets powdered up with use. Accuracy and consistency so far seems to be better then the disks. The ability to fine tune the load is what I really like about it. I have not had any problems with p...

From what CL9 and others have said, MM's mods are MANDATORY if you want the LLM to function as a quality piece of machinery, which I feel is exactly what I will have when I finalize "renovations" to my two newly acquired LLM's. Not really. MM states on his web site that if your press is w...

I have a Midway Automatic Max Cartridge Gauge Set (set of 6) that I bought years ago. Midway doesn't sell this set anymore or at least I can't find it. They are similar to the L.E. Wilson Max Cartridge Gage's that Midway sells. I use them often during reloading. I don't check every cartridge that I ...

I have MM's mods on my primer system. I had problems when I first installed it with flipped primers and crushed primers. I had to remove the Auto-retracted slider system (rubber bands) that MM puts on the primer arm when he sends it back and reverted back to the case activated system. I have not rep...

I knew I had read it somewhere. This is from the Lee site: New Decapper Design Posted by Steph @ Lee Precision on 22 April 2013 02:06 PM The old style decapper/expander rods in the sizing dies consisted of two parts. The rod itself was machined and the the decapping pin was a roller bearing that was...

Yes, the decapping die I bought in December 2013 is made that way. I remember reading somewhere that this is the way they are being made now.

Well, I gotta wonder why my carrier's center post has not swollen. I crank mine down a lot tighter than what you guys are. I probably hit 20 foot pounds easily. My newest shell plate is probably 2 years-old. I will keep an eye on it. prs I think it is matter of how many times the carrier bolt is to...

So, how tight Mike? How many inch/pounds you suggest? Not Magic Mike but a Mike. I have had good results with 75 inch/pounds. The published spec from LEE is definitely too tight. I had been torquing to the 139 in/lbs and suffered the center post swelling. I did some experimenting with the carrier t...

I checked the lnstruction that came with my LM and the one I downloaded in November of 2011. They both state "Only Winchester or CCI brand primers are safe to use unless you have installed the optional explosion deflector." The current Instructions on the Lee site have replaced Winchester ...

If you have the die all the way to the shell plate and not getting enough flare something is not right. I would check and make sure you don't have the .380 and 9mm mixed like you said.

I bought a Lee Classic Cast Press to use for the Bulge Buster. Have done a lot of .40. Just got the 9mm Makarov this week and ran a few 9mm through it. On the 40 & 9mm there is quite a bit of variation on the force required. Glock fired brass takes the most force on both calibers. I have found t...

Your brass needs to be resized full length. Lee makes a die specific to this need and the kit it comes in is called the Lee Bulge Buster Kit. Lee specifically warns against using it for the 9mm as it is a slightly tapered case, however, 100's of thousands of 9mm cases have been run through the 9mm ...
