Call Lee now

Don't wait for email. Call them right now and ask for Pat. You also may not have gotten the right turret from Midway. Is it the 4 hole for the Classic, not the old turret press? You need to talk with Pat--whatever you do when you replace the turret, or anything else, do not force it! Things should g...

My SDB NEVER worked. I kept it three weeks and sent it back for full refund. They basically said, Oh well, sometimes we have a lemon in the mix.

Amen, brother. I got rid of a piece of Dillon SDB junk too, nearly two years ago. I have LM and Classic Turret. I have learned how to use them, and made some of the mods that shadowdog, darwin and uncle don recommended. My LM now is virtually bulletproof, to coin a phrase. The case ejector mod with ...

You cannot go wrong with Kempf Gun Shop. They are by far the best in my experience. If you have a problem they will stand behind you. The larger guys like Graf will too, but at Kempf you're dealing with one of the owners. They are a small family shop.

Super explanation. :D Being totally unable to do any of what you have done since I have no tools, no drill press, etc sort of leaves me in the lurch. As I said above, I am not sure that I need such a mod. For example, I needed to get a box of ammo for my wife to shoot tomorrow so I whacked out 50 ro...

I don't think that's your problem. I decap in Station 1 and run resizing in Station 2 with no problems. You must keep that shoulder the primer pin sits on squeaky clean, get rid of any clockwise shell plate rotation and work with undamaged primer assembly/parts. It is also a good idea to file that c...

I second the motion on Kempf Gun Shop posted above by rwilson452. Professional assistance to help you get what you need, not anything you don't and good prices to boot.

I am not sure I agree. The 'ram' you refer too is actually the primer plunger pin and it has no physical connection with the nylon primer assembly. The only way it can be tipped off axis is by an uneveness in the primer lever arm or by dirt, usually powder grains, building up on the little ledge tha...

One of the more frustrating aspects of reloading shotshells is the frequency with which the powder makers recipe doesn't fit in the hull. Your experience is not uncommon. For example, I shoot lots of skeet and I prefer the yellow Win AA hull. With 16 gr Unique and 7/8 oz shot it should crimp just fi...

My concern with blocking the primer system either via a bolt or silicone is to reduce the vibration causing primer feeling problems...anyone? I think a possible solution for all the trouble would be a primer system built from Al instead of plastic... Guys, I've been around the block with the primer...

If you use the double disk arrangement be darned sure you have the larger hole on the bottom disk and the smaller on the top disk; otherwise you'll get powder hangup if it's reversed. Not good.

I agree totally with jfh. And doing the priming off line doesn't justify the expense of a progressive press. I did that for a while when I was having troubles with my priming system. It is slooowwwww. And, yes, the spring return is perfectly good on an auto-indexing turret press and that's what I ha...
