I agree after watching Libety Forever video on easy .223 reloading and it worked great for sizing .223 brass. I had the same problem with lubing with regular gun or motor oil on the ram. When the ram sat for a day or two it was sticky again and tight. Mobil One syntetic motor oil worked great on the...

Mod for powder return chain??

The powder return chain rubs on the large thunb screw that secures the aluminum die plate. It not only loosens the thumbnut but moves the powder hopper back and forth side to side loosening the hopper nuts. Has anyone made a flush screw that tightens with an allen wrench or made an extenstion for th...

We do shoot Glocks this new die just has more pressure than the old die on my P1000. Maybe it has a longer sizing area on it.

9mm squeeze

Just put my new 9mm Lee 4 carbide set of dies in my Lm. There is a lot of pressure on the sizing die. The die says 9mm #19. On my Lee 1000 set of 3 dies the 9mm says #84 is there such a thing as undersized 9mm sizing dies? Is it possible I have the wrong die? thanks

I just had the same problem. I had only loaded about 300 rds of 45. I started getting tipped primers that I had not expericenced in the past. I found the powder return chain had loosened up the turret thumb bolt and the turret was moving. When I tightened the thumb bolt up the problem was gone. Hope...

Thumb screw backed out.

My screw backed out tonight. It took a couple of sideways primers to figure out the turret was loose. Looking it over either the powder base needs a way to tighten up so it does not rotate freely allowing the chain to rub the thumb screw.2. Add a bracket at the bottom moving the bottom chain hole aw...

The guys smearing a little oil have hit the nail on the head. I had started with regular motor oil the ram would start to drag after 100 rounds. I tried gun oil that had the same results. Grease I feel would dry out and start the ram dragging. I then tried synthetic Mobil one motor oil. Like others ...

The early P1000 came with a spring loaded return on the powder hopper. The new ones come with the chain pull return. If you have the older one you can buy the update kit it is safer. Make sure you get the small peice at the bottom of the carrier to attatch the bottom of the chain to. Also lube your ...

223 parts

When you buy the LM setup for .223, Lee changes the parts they send with the new LM. You get no case feeder tubes. The powder measure is different they sent the Perfect Powder Measure which did not work. So when changing over to pistol cal you do need to buy a few things. Pat was very helpful and we...

Case moves out of the shellplate

On my 1000, the case slider pushes the case all the way into the shellplate. But when the slider pulls away from the shellplate the case moves out away from the inside of the shellplate and when the case goes up into the sizing die it hits the edge of the die and I have to move it over with my finge...

A great fix, the biggest challenge was getting the hole drilled in the center of the penny. But I got it and it works great loaded about 300 9mm tonight with the fix.

I was having trouble with the case slider not clearing the frame at the top of the stroke. Watching the videos I knew I needed to screw out the square rod bolt holder. However I had a idea and rotated to square rod 180 degrees and found that the rod was bent and that alone solved my problem. I now h...

chain vs spring

While the chain seems in the way, it reduces the drag of the stroke and increases the feel of the up 'prime' stroke.
