Re: Mod for powder return chain??

Mike-Mat, is that a light mounted at an angle on the top outside front of the frame? If so, can you give is the specs on it and where to buy?

Got a link for us?

Re: Where is everyone?

Greetings everyone. I'm here too, but confess that I haven't been on the forum for a loooong time, mostly because my reloading & shooting activities have gone dormant for a couple of years now. Ever since I bought a resell home a few years ago it has taken up most of my free time and interest, n...

Re: Homegrown powder checker

That's interesting. Would've thought that the Auto Drum would be more fool proof than that. Did this happen using a powder that would be more prone to this? Anyway, thanks for the 'heads up'.

Re: u guys load 223 on classic turret?

Yeah, I do load my .223 ammo on the Classic Turret Press. I prefer using it over the Loadmaster I have because it seems more stable for rifle ammo.

Re: Issues with new Lee parts

Magic Mike: Speaking of the 6s substitute plate, I followed your advice & couldn't be happier with the results. Granted, my bevel modification was not as precise as yours but it seems to work & I no longer have primer problems as I did with the 19s. Sure, I'll get an occasional minor smiley ...

Re: S&B 9mm brass

Octopuss.....this stuff seems like good quality brass & the tight pockets would probably hardly be noticed on any other priming system but given that the LLM priming system is so temperamental its probably not a good idea to be using it on this press, unless, that is, you modify the pockets.

S&B 9mm brass

I believe I read someone's comment about the use S&B 9mm brass on the LLM on this forum some time ago but cannot locate it with the search function, but wanted to give a heads-up that this brass (at least the ones I have) have very tight primer pockets & probably shouldn't be used on this pr...

Re: Case feeder nightmare

The recommended method of adjusting the tension on the plastic friction part that slides up & down the square bar is to fully tighten (do not over tighten) the uppermost screw & lightly adjust the lower one until you attain the desired tension. In other words, its the lower screw that's the ...

Yeah GD, that's a fact. One can use the new Auto Drum either way. Hadn't thought about that one.

You can eliminate the chain altogether by buying the Lee Powder Drum. It has its own internal spring return.

Re: Lee service is top notch

Yeah, one way to circumvent the crooked hole problem on the LLM turrets is to bite the bullet & buy the ones from Magic Mike. While they may be more costly, at least you know they'll work & you can eliminate that from your diagnosis.

Re: Case Feeder 9 x 19 mm

Yes, like some have already stated, the information I've been seeing for some time now, plus experienced for myself, is that the upper screw should be tightened snugly while the lower one is the friction adjuster. I had similar problems with the case feeder using 9mm cases, especially when there was...
