Cool. I didn't see the 5-20 listed on their website, so maybe that's why they were hard to find...discontinued? I've never shot Vortex or know anybody who does, but everything I read about them is good. I do have a Vortex bino harness but I guess you can't really relate accessories to scopes. Man! I...

Excessive case neck runout

Just a tip here, and goes to show that any manufacturer can have issues. I load 300 WSM for hunting on my Forster Co-Ax and use the shoulder bump neck sizing die for fire formed brass. I only use Norma brass and it's good stuff - very consistent out of the box. While prepping for a recent hunting tr...

I think you have a solid platform with the 700P, and you're going to need a great scope and mount to potentially reach out to 1k +. Of course you're also going to need a good spotter with a good spotting scope too. A lot of scopes these days are like fishing lures IMO. I assume you're looking at a v...

Ok, so it looks like Magic Mike hit on the reason behind my initial query - how to free up a spot for a powder cop. So, assuming you put the seater/crimp die in station 5, that leaves station 4 open for a powder cop. Unfortunately, that means you eliminate any kind of bullet feeding operation and ha...

Got it. Guess I was just confused over why Lee would recommend doing bullet seating and crimping with FCD in separate steps, and apparently many purists do it this way. Also when I saw that Lee is developing a new combination seating/crimping die it made me wonder why their current one didn't work t...

Did you ever fix the pistol? I'm curious because it sounds like the same one I have from your description. I got it some 40+ years ago and it worked fine up till a couple years ago then the same thing...won't hold the air. I haven't taken it apart to check, but I suspected leaking seals.

Yeah, I used to shop at Midway a LOT, but sometime in the last several months, they changed something and really f'd it up. I sent a note to technical support and they admitted that they changed it accomodate more browsing platforms - specifically smart phones. Well, all that did was screw up my acc...

So, maybe a silly question, but why don't you have a L-n-L AP press?

Seating + crimping

So forgive me for not searching for a thread that already adresses this, and I'm sure it exitsts. I've seen several vids that show using only a seating die to perform both seating and crimping...I'm assuming a taper crimp to remove the flare. How's this working for you and how do adjust the seating ...

Carload, that's been my experience with the Lee plate. I love it for the "flexibility" it provides, but it does seem to induce some flexing from the plate. Interestingly, I get less flex when I use a hardwood base instead of the plate.
