Could not have chosen a worse product name. Get an ambitious DA like the one that went after Zimmerman in a politically charged self defense shooting, and try to defend "R.I.P.".

Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Jeez! :roll: :roll:

So now I not only have to watch for 9mm and .45 ACP crimped pockets, plus separate .45 ACP large and small primers, I also need to start hand sorting .40 S&W.

Handloading just got more tedious, again.

The trimmer references off the case shoulder. So am I correctly assuming that one would full length size the case first, and then trim, so that the case shoulder is bumped back to a consistent length prior to trimming? I also got a kick out of the dyslexic acronym difference between "WTF case t...

I've never seen crimped .40 S&W and have never touched a .40 S&W primer pocket. Probably loaded 10-12 thousand .40's over the years without trouble. What am I missing? Now military ammo, such a 9mm, .45 ACP, 5.56, or 7.62? Sure, I've dealt with crimped pockets. But never seen it in .40.

Great idea. Would never have thought of that.

Why are you worried? It is not like anyone ever accidentally shoots himself, right? :P :P Those 4 Cooper Rules are just "suggestions" anyway. :P :P

So I spent some time viewing the turret stabilization plates. Couple quick questions.

Looks like I need to drill/tap 5 securement screw holes in the top of the press, correct? What drill and tap sizes.

Second, do I send the stock turret to you and you perform the jbweld and mounting mods?

Forget about the primer brand, but I absolutely DO recommend the blast shield. Cheap injury insurance. Frankly, I think Lee shouldsimply bundle it in with every Loadmaster as a safety feature. Raise the price a couple bucks and call it "standard". Aside from the safety aspect, personally, ...

Last summer, I sorted, cleaned, and sold, about 10,000 .45 ACP brass (had bought some bulk range brass). Found about 20% of range brass was small primer brass in that lot. That is up from being "very unusual" just a couple of years ago. Now, everyone who loads .45 ACp simply has to sort th...

Jumping Frog, you will need some means to trim some pistol or revolver cases if you shoot hot loads as the cases will stretch significantly, eg, hot 44 mag loads will stretch the case up to .008 and will need to be trimmed. So you will need to trim some cases, depends on the caliber. The OP specifi...

Re: 2new molds

... i am wanting a NOE and one RCBS mold. Personally, I am not as pleased with my NOE mold. IMO, Accurate Mold makes better molds than NOE by far. As far a Lyman goes, the old molds are OK, but I'd steer way clear of anything newer than 10 years. Their quality control has slipped a lot and have dev...
