Given the lawsuit friendly world we live in, I'm surprised the $.50 chunk of steel that is the explosion shield isn't standard equipment.

Well, that's slicker than cat snot, motopic. Kind of pricey, though. Only on the face of it. It's 1 meter long and contains 60 total LEDs. They can be split up in 3 led increments, so could make 20 individual LED strips. They are also RGB, which means they are programmable color. That requires you ...

No, it was a single turret setup to deprime, size, reprime, and then a second to do the rest, so 2 total. It also allows moving the powder charge to station 2 on the 2nd turret, making room for a powder check die.

I believe a lockout die is only for straight-wall pistol cartridges.

Ah, yes, that is correct.

It's true that the lock-out die takes up a spot, but so does the Dillon Powder Check, right? My point was that I think the Lockout will give the same function, without having to custom build a setup for the Dillon, and it's cheaper too. Of course, if the OP already has a Dillon checker, that changes...

Have you considered an RCBS LockOut die? Just takes up a turret position.

It might make a difference what the charge is, too. Some powders don't work with smaller charges. That's a fair point, not sure how to best represent that. Also wondering if we need to keep track of the adjustable charge bar and the double disk kit. In some respects, those could be considered diffe...

I started just keeping a list of the recommended powders, but then noticed some "conflicting votes" so decided that it needed to be more of a tally of positive and negative votes for each powder. So that's what the numbers are. Sorry I forgot to add the description to the original post.

Recommended powders

I think it might be a good idea to have a sticky with a list of powders that meter well with the Autodisk measures. Not anything that recommends specific loads, but just powders that will give consistent drops, and those that will not. Any thoughts on this idea? Here's the list, I'll do my best to k...

Yep, that's it...i remember thinking about all those shavings ending up in the priming parts. A shop vac minimizes that though. Yeah, he describes a shroud that is there that contains the shavings and he just has to clean it out every 500-1000 cases. Maybe it would be best to setup a case prep turr...

I recall seeing a detailed post, but i can't remember what forum i saw it on. A gent built his own copy of a dillon trimmer and was using it on the loadmaster. There was close up pics and as i recall a detailed description. Maybe this? http://www.perfectunion.com/vb/reloading/61841-dillon-trimmer-2...
