Re: Pro Disk Powder system vs Auto Drum Powder system

I have retired all of my autodisks. Both Classic Turret and LM are now Auto Drums. Very satisfied.

Re: LM Setup Procedure when switching bullet sizes? (9mm)

Also I might add you could check to see where that bullet unfouls. My Missouri Bullet Company 147 grain Flat Point unfouls at 1.132 so seating them becomes tight. Only .015 or so from lands at 1.120 approx. Easily a land grabber if you don't seat consistently.

Re: LM Setup Procedure when switching bullet sizes? (9mm)

What is your COL? Plunk test can fail for several reasons, one being the Spin portion. I always look for it to spin or turn freely once in the barrel to make sure its free of the lands. Also how high is the round above the barrel shrouds? Should be flush or better. As to the adjustment of the FCD, y...

Re: LM Setup Procedure when switching bullet sizes? (9mm)

That looks like normal for 147 grainers to me. Loaded 100 today. They alway imprint the bearing surface. As long as it passes your plunk test you should be good. Especially if you are using a full length crimp sizing die after seating.

Re: bullet feeder mod

Yes, I agree the bullet feeder thing is an after thought with me. First and foremost is my indexing which is now working nicely. Second is my case feeding which is going nicely. Thirdly my priming system which I believe is now right. Currently loading pre primed and processed brass so not using it a...

Re: Flipper getting stuck

Excellent photos! Helps immensely. I can see alot of threads behind that flipper, Octopuss. As Gooffeyguy stated the flipper should not be that far out. I have found that when things get hinky like this recheck the alignment. Slightly pull the IR out on the way UP and snug against the middle of the ...

Re: Decapping die alternative?

Me thinks if you are decapping primers that are that hard to remove that possibly they are crimped military brass? When I hit something that pushes the decapper rod upwards to prevent it from breaking it tells me that the case I am trying to deprime is a problem child. I almost never hit primers lik...

Re: Using the Lee Bullet Feeder

Most of mine are flat points. I have coated and plated bullets. Will see if it's worth the hassle or not. Would like it to work but it will have to be pretty jam up consistent to keep it mounted on the press.

Re: indexing rod aperature

Yes, the shell plate spins like glass without the index rod. However, I have removed the primer trough and now it indexes like a new machine. This is not the first time I have primed off press because of the primer system somehow creating drag on the indexing. I cleaned the well out so it appears to...

Re: Using the Lee Bullet Feeder

No there are plenty of instructions from Lee. I was looking for more tips and tricks from forum members who have actually used it like we have on the press itself. I got my feeder today. Hmmm.... I see what you mean now. Instructions are bare bones. My bullets are Missouri Bullets with no lube groo...

Re: indexing rod aperature

So how did the new flipper work for you. I put a new flipper on my press and started having indexing issues . I eventually went back to my old black plastic flipper and the press seems to work smoother now. It works but the cycle is still very stiff. I have eliminated the index rod as a culprit. Al...

Re: indexing rod aperature

When I bought my first Loadmaster I could tighten the shell plate finger tight. After getting everything working properly with the num. 19 shell plate I started on the num. 4 and 2. I had to mill down the Num. 4 and num. 2 shell plates to be able to tighten the shell plate nut. After doing that all...

Re: Red letter primer trays

Cool idea. WIll try it. Hope it works on the non red letter versions. Did you see any difference between red letter and non red letter units?
