You should never go below the starting load with slow burning powder.

There is a chance of a detonation with reduced loads of slow powder.

Using fast powders with reduced,midrange loads, is fine but stick with the loads from your manual.

Thanks for your input and support. I will try, from this point on, to use proper punctuation. I will also endeavor to keep the sentences short enough for you to understand my meaning(s) and if possible to use words not larger than two syllables. Some kind of formatting would sure make it easier to ...

Re: Using the Lee perfect powder measure with the LLM

The latest email from Titan Reloading had an article on using the Lee perfect powder measure with the universal charging die on the LLM. Has anyone ever tried that with success? Are there any videos of it being used in this manner? I have a perfect powder measure set up for manual operation for my ...

Agreed. The PAD works just fine, especially if you put in a powder baffle. Mine has never been so accurate as it is now! It does not work "fine" for rifle calibers, changing charge weights with the disks is hit and miss,the ppm is easily adjusted for a near infinite number of variations. ...

Re: Getting Ready to Reload .223

Hello All, I have owned a Load Master for @ 2 years and have been reloading, 45acp, 38 special, and 9mm. Prior to the Load Master I had a Lee Single Stage Press which I sold to fund the purchase of the Load Master. I recently decided to purchase an AR-15 and I am reading and watching videos about r...

Did a little experiment. I placed the Auto Disk Hopper on my Pro bottom end, and it appears that Lee has maybe increased the clearance on the lower part such that the loose tolerance happens with the original Auto Disk hopper as well, so no matter which way I go, as long as I use the Pro bottom end...

When changing calibers, you most likely will have to make adjustments unless you use Shadow Dog's method of setting primer depth by adjusting the dies to set it. Once you have it set, you shouldn't need to adjust it again unless something goes wrong. If we are still talking about the loadmaster, i ...

Re: FYI

I'm still a noob with the Loadmaster only having it for a few months now. I just have 2 shell plates so far. One for .357 & one for 9mm. All the advice videos on Youtube stress how important it is to place the sizer die in the #2 location to align the case for accurate priming. At this point I'...

Be aware that I am fairly new and only load 9mm. I knew from the get-go that the primer feed on these was a pain from research before purchase. Also, loading up dirty primer pockets bothered me, so I decided to eliminate the primer feed all together. I have a die holder just for depriming. Run all ...

I received my bolt back from Greg today. I was shocked at how quickly he turned it around. Tracking said he received it on Saturday and his included invoice was dated the Saturday so he must have done the work as soon as he got it. His workmanship is beautiful and I can't wait to see the results. N...

Re: Rifle loading problem

I've been reloading for 9mm and .45 ACP on a Lee Turret press for several years, but until last week I had never ventured into rifle territory. I have a military surplus (well, not really) Mauser, a Yugo M24/47, chambered in the original 8mm (7.92) Mauser. I have a small stash of Ecuadorian mil-sur...
