Re: New Lee Progressive Press?

If you use it with the Autodisk powder measure, the Autodisk works on the up stroke. It has nothing to do with the press, that's the way the device was designed. I'm seeing more reviews and more videos about this new machine, and most of the reports seem to be generally favorable. I'm keeping my eye...

Berry's bullets - load data

I've been loading Berry's plated bullets for many years, ever since I first ventured into reloading to reduce my cost of shooting. I'm not in a situation where I can undertake casting my own bullets, plus the indoor range where I shoot is an older facility with a ventilation system that's not exactl...

Speed up bullet sizing

I stumbled across an interesting video, apparently from Europe, that ovvers an innvative way to make bullet sizing go faster with the Lee Bullet Sizing Kit.

Re: New Lee Progressive Press?

I got the video to run. This new press looks like a mixed bag. It seems to eliminate some of the aspects that can make the Loadmaster "finnicky," so that's a plus. Caliber changes require swapping out four individual dies with their breechlock bushings, rather than simply switching turrets...

Re: New Lee Progressive Press?

For some reason, the video won't play for me.

Can it be used with the Autodisk or Autodrum powder measures?

Cast bullet lube question

I saw this thread http://forums.loadmastervideos.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=2783 and before I saw it I had already studied the several discussions on other forums to which it refers. I have a special problem and I'm trying to figure out how to approach it. If any of you are familiar with th...

Re: Classic Turret press misalignment

I just went through the same issue. Mine is the original Turret Press, not the cast-iron Classic. It's a simple fix, and there's a video on the Lee web site that explains it. After many years of use, a few weeks ago I began to notice that when the turret rotated it didn't advance quite far enough to...

Odd-ball cartridge

Since we're in te "Odds and Ends" discussion area, here's a real odd-ball for y'all: I have an old black powder revolver, a clone of a Colt. The original, black powder chambering was .44, which allows for the use of .45 caliber metallic case ammo because the bore is the same. What I learne...

Re: Custom dies?

The new stem, along with a spare seating die, arrived yesterday. The die isn't really profiled to the exact shape of the Berry's semi-wadcutter bullet. Basically, Lee just drilled out the interior of the seating plug so that the outer perimeter bears on the shoulder of the SWC bullet, rather than th...

Re: Berry's bullet question

As an update, I made up a batch of these 185-grain bullets using 5.0 grains of Winchester 231, seated to 1.250" (which is what Berry's recommends). They shot VERY accurately, and recoil was minimal (which is what I'm hoping to accomplish). However, the brass came out very black around the case ...

Custom dies?

Has anyone ever had Lee make them a custom seating die stem? I occasionally load Berry's plated semi-wadcutters in .45 ACP. The standard seating die gets the job done, but it can be troublesome so I decided to take the plunge. Lee only makes a custom seating plug, they don't sell a custom die, so in...

And, of course, I completely forgot that I also need a #14 shell holder for the AutoPrime hand priming tool.

Re: Berry's bullet question

Thanks, but I don't cast my own bullets. I need information on this specific bullet from Berry's Bullets.

Recording load data

How do you all do it? For a long time I only loaded .45 ACP, always using the same brass, the same primers, the same bullets, and the same powder. There just wasn't much need to keep track of anything. When I branched out into 9mm, it happened that my powder charge remained the same so, again, there...
