Thanks,

I just finished a long term project (30 x52 shop)and am starting to get the reloading itch again.

I liquidated a lot of my stuff to help pay for my dream shop and planned to slowly buy things again when I start recovering.

One thing you will have to watch out for now is powder falling through the hole in the turret and finding it's way into the primer trough. I always end up with powder in that hole after a loading session...i guess that could be remedied as well though. I do indeed like what you've come up with here...

Yes, I used one that I made out of the bottom of a coffee can. It worked well and the spread on my powder charges tightened up considerably. It dont cost anything to make one to try, so have at it.

Darwin, looking at your picture you have the ejector on the left side of the feed ramp, I cut mine to fit on the right side thinking it would keep from shifting as the shellplate moves forward. Did I mess up? Ideally, you want it as shown in Darwin’s photo. This mod keeps the shellplate from rotati...

Re: Case Loader installed! Question?

Darwin, Does Shadowdog still visit this forum? Wonder if he would sell me one of his modded ejectors? Yes, I pop in every few weeks or so but don’t really have anything to contribute since I don’t have a Loadmaster anymore. I just picked up a Star luber this week so I expect to do a lot of casting ...

Ive read several posts on several forums on whole trays of primers going off in the Loadmaster. One even had some pretty graphic photos of a severly mangled blast shield. This can happen in any press. I would reccomend using a blast shield with any primer (even CCI). A couple of bucks for a blast sh...

I doubt the 45s would feed at all if you used a 45 case to make the holes. If you used a 1/2" hole punch they may feed, but they would feed extremly slow. I would reccomend taking it off when loading 45.

Glad that worked out for you. Prsonally I belive that this is the single most important mod that I came up with to increase reliability on a loadmaster.

I have never needed a die nut wrench for the Lee nuts (with the rubber rings) on my LM. It seems that I can set things tight enough with my fingers. When I adjust the die, I hold the nut and turn the die.. Never comes loose.. My dies never came loose when tightening them by hand either. But there w...

Shadow, there's plenty of room to use Dillon's 1" wrench with the 1" dies. Why in the world would I recommend it if it wouldn't work? It's what I'm using on my LM. Crazylegs Crazyegs, I didn't reccomend it, I was just pointing out that the nut size was different. Do you use the dillon 1&q...

Mine worked, but I wound up taking it off for several reasons. First it really does not save much time overall. The time you save at the press is offset by the time filling the tubes, and twiddeling with the thing when it does not work. Second, the extra set up time when changing calibers did not ma...

I used a 1-1/8" socket to make the wrenches for the Lee dies. Dillon uses a 1" nut so the Dillon wrench would not work unless you bought the Dillon nuts, and I doubt that there would be enough room between the dies to use that wrench anyway. If someone had a way to cast these it would be a...

Shadow Dog 500 - Where did you get that cool die wrench. I want one - Please don't tell me you made it! I made it. I also made a few others as Christmas presents for Uncle Don, DarwinT, and Benedict. I could make another for you but would need an 1-1/8 impact socket to whittle down on the Lathe. I ...

It can also be done by using the Dillon die and expander. I used the chain in the photo on purpose just to ruffle a few feathers in a color war. :wink: http://media3.dropshots.com/photos/216860/20071114/223203.jpg http://media4.dropshots.com/photos/216860/20071114/223204.jpg
