Re: LM Setup for .243 Winchester...

I reload a lot of .243 but I do it all on my single stage press, mainly because of case preparation. Maybe 100 rounds a year is all I shoot in .243 so I am not in that much of a hurry when I do reload and I like to check each stage thoroughly on each shell I am going to be shooting at game. Someone ...

Re: WTB Lee Classic Turret and Load Master

If you are mechanical minded and don't mind tinkering, I recommend the LLM. I have two. One I keep set up for .223 only and the other one I use for all calibers of my pistol reloading. I have just about all of Magic Mike's mods on both & recommend them highly. I personally prefer to do all my ot...

Re: pro auto disk in station 2 on Loadmaster?

I hurriedly made one out of a small bolt for the RCBS, but it never worked consistently. I later switched to the Hornady powder cop die. It is about half price & comes ready for the .223 cases. The Hornady works differently in that it is a visible guide & does not lock up the press like the ...

Re: pro auto disk in station 2 on Loadmaster?

I have two LLM's so one is set up for .223 only, distributing powder in station 2 & yes, powder check die in station 3. I had to adapt it with smaller punch.

I use my other LLM for all pistol calibers with normal set-up, priming in station 2 & dropping powder in station 3.

Re: pro auto disk in station 2 on Loadmaster?

YES to both questions.

I turned the eye bolt around to the other side of the press & removed the explosion shield.

Re: pro auto disk in station 2 on Loadmaster?

Yes, I have dropped power in station 2 before while reloading .223. To be safe, I removed the priming pin. That lets me use my powder-check die in station 3. I do a lot of case preparation on .223 cases anyway & its not much more trouble to just go ahead & prime before I begin on the LLM. Ne...

Re: Recording load data

I have looked at several but found that they asked you to record so many things that I did not necessarily want or need to keep a record of. I just made my own sheets using Excel & made only the columns I wanted, since I use it to record reloading only. Ended up printing them on 3 3/4" x 6 ...

Each & every one is working great. I had problems off & on with the case feeder until you came up with some good improvements.

Re: triangular folding primer tray

I have had difficulties with small primers & the new trays also, especially with the "stop" working properly. I still have some of the round trays & will use them as long as I can. Lee had a good idea & was really trying to improve the situation but did not perfect it before it...

Re: 9MM shell plate and priming issues

You might want to check with Mike about his latest recommendation but it was my understanding that you don't use both the magnet & small spring. I believe the reason he uses the magnet is to be able to eliminate the spring altogether, since it pushes the pin to one side & causes it to scrape...

Re: Case feeder nightmare

WebsterZ provides a nice aluminum slider with a slider insert that will smooth out the operation. I have one of his newer ones on one of my LLM's & his older model on my other LLM which works good but has to be adjusted just right, like the Lee. Before I got his mod's I was going to secure the t...
