Adjustable Charge Bar

I read about folks successfully using a Lee ACB on their Pro Auto-Disk. Well, my ACBs don't work with my PADs. Attached is a picture of the slot the lever goes in, what the ACB looks like mounted, and where the powder drops from the hopper, missing the ACB completely. If looks like it should be far ...

Topic: Bullet Feeder - Setting Bullet Seating Die Question?
Replies: 8

Maybe others can do what I can't, but I put a bullet in the "jaws," and screw the die down and move the bullet under the die as I screw the die down. I stop either when I hit the crimp section (and screw the die body up 1-2 turns) or I stop when the bullet in the "jaws" hits the ...

I have been using LLA for years (decades?) and have never been bothered by its tackiness. I am more concerned with how the target looks and how my barrel looks. A tacky bullet goes in a box, it comes out and is seated, the round goes in a box, the round comes out of the box and it is fired. At no ti...

I use them manually on my 1050s. I simply place 5-6 in the bullet feed die and manually cycle the feeder. Not to speed up the process but to eliminate my left hand shaking badly when trying to place a bullet on the case. I think it works great. I could not see any advantage in manually loading the t...

In general, a 0.5cc cavity will drop 5.0gn of 231. I am not sure why so many people freak out that they don't get the exact weight Lee calls out. Here is a table I have for the lots of powder I use: Lee Disk 0.12 0.15 0.18 0.21 0.24 0.27 0.30 0.32 0.34 0.37 0.40 0.43 0.46 0.49 0.53 0.57 0.61 0.66 0....

That's the way I do it. I use 20/40 grit corn and never have any in the flash hole or packed in the primer pocket. If I did, it would still be removed when I resize the case. To me, it makes sense to inspect, sort, and deprime as the brass then goes into a case feeder.

It has to be "loose" enough to slide up before the pin breaks and tight enough that it doesn't simply keep sliding up. I use the Lee Universal Decapping Die and every time the stem slides up, I hit it with a hammer. I have only been doing this for about 6 years, so it may not be a perfect ...

You must be using too much LLA. If you can see the LLA on the bullet, you have too much. If you need that much, maybe you should try setting up all your bullets in a pan, pour in thinned LLA to almost the ogive of the bullet (so the bore bearing section is lubed), and remove the bullets, scrape off ...

I wish the "pusher" was longer so the brass would be "sized" from the case head first.

The "problem" with so many Lee products is they assume that everything is obvious and they only write the minimal instructions needed. However, I learned with my Perfect Powder Measure that every work they do print needs to be followed. If I could make any recommendations to Lee it would b...

I plan on testing some loads. My feeling is if you take the time to set the bullets straight up, it may not have any effect. However, the fingers grip the bullet as it enters the die, so there is no sudden shifting of the bullet. I'm not that interested in that aspect, but if I can load tubes and ha...

Lee Bullet Feeder and Dillon 1050

Does anyone use the Lee Bullet Feeder on their Dillon 1050 or know someone who has?
I bought the Lee Bullet Feeder kit and manually cycle it on my 1050. So far, even with sticky cast bullets covered in LLA the thing works great.

Do the cases have to be sized before they are used in the "Bulge Buster?" Do the cases enter the FCD head first? Does the $25 Lee press actually work for this job? I tried taking a sized case, applying case lube, and attempted to push the case through the FCD using a wooden dowel. The case...
