Re: LM Setup for .243 Winchester...

I think you will really like taking time to check case length & trim & chamfer each case. I also clean out each primer pocket thoroughly before replacing primer. I then precisely measure each powder load. I am still using an old 2-die C-H full length die set for .243. Began reloading with t...

Re: LM Setup for .243 Winchester...

Erle - You know, after thinking about it, I am just going to go with a single press, like you. I think by the time I buy the turret, dies, shell plate,primer system and auto powder charger, it would be more economy to scale. The Lee Precision 90045 - Breech Lock Reloader Press lists for about $35 t...

Re: Pro Disk Powder system vs Auto Drum Powder system

What powder were you using? I tried several different powders. I did have good luck with it using 2400 the one time I used that powder with it. The last time I tried using it was loading 223 for a ladder test with CFE 223. Started at 23gr. and it ran pretty well, a tenth or so one way or the other ...

Re: Pro Disk Powder system vs Auto Drum Powder system

Very happy for all you fellas that are having such good results from the Auto Drum measure. I've not been so lucky with the one I bought. The Pro disk measures I have and have had over the years have all been excellent as far as consistency, even using the double disk kit. The AD not so much, very e...

Re: Carrier alignment problem

I think I'm beginning to see your problem. Hammers and reloading presses do not mix, no matter the brand. Did you buy this press new and if so was it "local"...any help there maybe. It's very difficult to trouble shoot and or "tutor" someone by the written word on a reloading sit...

Re: Carrier alignment problem

How in the world did you damage the pins? Those things just slide out when you undo the nuts on the end. IIRC the yoke pin (you are talking about the small pin on the bottom?) will also slide out when you loosen the bottom nut that tightens the carrier. Been awhile since I've had mine apart. You can...

Re: Carrier alignment problem

There was a thread awhile back on the washer issue. IIRC it was from "Daveinflowerybankgeorgia", or something like that. His press was like you mention (mine was also, maybe they all are) but the jist was (we) put the wave washers on all four bolts on both sides. You might pull the carrier...

Re: No oiling hole?

The "older" frames did have a better finish on them along with the oil port. The new frames minus these attribute have the "machined" ridge for the index flipper to ride. Not sure how important that is, but I like it. As an aside I never use the oil port on my older press, I just...

Re: 9MM shell plate and priming issues

Ahh, the things that make the LM an "interesting" machine. I have/had the same issue with the small primer pin on mine as well. I did the opposite of most I guess. I removed the primer actuating arm with the magnet and went back to the original using the spring. Problem was resolved. I may...

Re: Case feeder nightmare

Have you tried moving it in closer (or further away) from the press to change the bar/press "angle" a bit. Every thing is "square" to each other. The Z bar doesn't move in or out of the case slider when actuated. That'll tell you if the bar is "square" to the "tong...

Re: Cleaning up the workbench

Daboone - the bins are a great idea too, will check them out and get a few myself. I also like the idea with the power strip, I still have an extension cord laying around... Horseman - the 3D-printing thing is pretty fun, but only of you like tinkering with things. Clogging of the print nozzle, fin...

Re: Cleaning up the workbench

I have to say those are absolutely fine looking. I know nothing of 3D printing or how to go about doing anything like that but certainly would like to see something like that available for sale. So much cleaner and better looking than drilling holes in a 1x6 board or plumbing pipe to set the die pla...

Re: Electronic digital scales

Not sure what you consider "medium priced". I have a couple RCBS ones, a Rangemaster 750 and a 1500 that came with the Chargemaster powder dispenser. Had them for several years and not had any issue with either. I use the 750 a lot. I also have a couple beam scales that I use also. I often...
