I vote for black for some contrast, but red would look good as well.

I'm using websterz slider & actuator and they have been rock solid so far. I've been loading mostly 9mm major the last 6-8 months, but . 40 has been flawless as well and also 300blk with his slider mod.

Those will greatly stabilize the turret and give good results, but if your turrets are the non-milled and modified by Magic Mike you won't receive the full benefit of COL stabilization. Watch Magic Mike's videos and read his info. I watched a video this morning by a fellow over on the castboolits w...

Can someone tell me the dimensions of that bolt that snugs down the square rod in the bracket at the base of the frame? Previous owner broke it off and I finally got it out of that bracket tonite. I can't remember the exact specs on that bolt, but I snapped my original one as well and replaced it w...

If you're getting new parts go with Websterz stuff - it works and needs less maintenance to stay working. I'm using all his case feed parts now. The problem I found with the plastic crank slider is it gets chattery after a bit of use because of what looks like some plastic dust probably created from...

A little oil on the slider rails helps, but in my experience chatter in the case feed system is generally from the crank slider on the square feed bracket.

If the slider is hanging up on the shell plate or case you may want to back out the feed bracket nut one turn or maybe just loosen the tension screw on the crank slider a touch.

600 is definitely doable if someone wanted to do it. I usually have all I need within 15-30 minutes, never gone an hour straight - just too tedious for me, but 15-30 is like a nice calming meditation session. :D I can do 100 9mm in 8 minutes and have done 300 in less than 30 minutes. I do everything...

I had hit or miss success with a piece of masking tape on top of the slider to create a little friction and also a little "shelf" over the u-notch that changes when the shell actually falls all the way down. Best bet would be to get the slider and spring shell holder from Webster here. I'v...

Never had a problem leaving one shot on the finished rounds. Hands get dirty when I go the range or a match with or without lube on the cases. No issues with thousands of rounds of 9mm major (pushing a 115 JHP 1500fps) and I reload those cases until they split like everything else. Like I said, I do...

I am too lazy to lubricate straight wall cases. Takes all of about 10 seconds with one shot :-) dump brass to load in box/container/whatever, spray a couple of 2 second bursts of one shot on them, shake for a couple of seconds, dump in the LM collator. I don't even bother to clean any off after loa...

I will second the case lube thought. I use the hornady one shot spray when doing pistol rounds on the LM - primarily because it helps with OAL consistency, but it also makes it noticeably easier to pull the handle (especially if you're doing a lot of rounds). A can also seems to last quite a while f...

Not sure if it provides any more leverage, but the Inline Fab handle is definitely more comfortable with better ergonomics.

I have a loadmaster mounted on the Lee 3-legged stand - using the steel bench plate. It offers a lot of stability on the down stroke (raising the ram) which is perfect for the loadmaster since it does all operations on the down stroke. Not as much stability on the up stroke, but that's not an issue...
