Danny, I can not tell you how much easier life would have been back in late 1993 or early 1994 or there abouts (I forget the date now) when I started with this press IF this site would have been then what it is now. My then new neighbor invited me over to see his press room. He had several blue pres...

Lee instructs use of STP or some such archaic goo on the case slide runway's bottom. I use the dry DuPont type aerosol lube and have used white lithium. I do slick the edges and bottom with 600 wet/dry paper too. The square rod's round end does tend to bend if you get a press jamb and do not stop yo...

Horseman, make sure you have the latest edition of the primer trough assembly. There were several re-issues of them that looked pretty much the same, but the ones between the current issue and the originals were total trash. If not sure, just order a new one. I do not have to tinker or fidget with t...

Probably in same shape as you, all my cases, many thousands of them, are all loaded except for a few hundred on the back 40 from the past week's shooting. Gotta find time to shoot more so I can load more; thought it was supposed to be the other way around. ;-)

Horseman, it does take a lot of cash to reload. Powder, when you can find it is outrageously high. Wheel weights are becoming unobtainum. Primers were difficult to find, not so much now, but still $. But you have been around the block with the LM before and know that lots of mods are just not necess...

I have been shooting PC for months now and many thousands of rounds. No evidence thus far of any barrel polishing. The stuff is slicker than an oyster and very tough.

I have been running it with the coated bullets and it works great. I had to open the bullet guide a little to accommodate using 452 sized bullets instead of 452. Using the Lee push through sizer to load the tubes for the feeder really helps.

I have done countless 45Colt loads in black powder and smokeless with 454 boolits. No problem and no CFCD. The seater/crimp die is roll crimp. The CFCD is sort of a hybrid roll crimp.

Prepping brass is easy.The labor is in collecting and rendering lead and casting boolits and sizing boolits and powder coating boolits and sizing the powder coated boolits. I typically buy new brass so it is all large primer and not defective. Then I shoot until it cracks, sometimes hundreds of time...

Bushing set-up found and works great

This was not too difficult. I took a 1 1/2" nipple of schedule 40 pvc 3/4" inside diameter exterior grade water pipe and pressed it down onto the Lee push through bullet size die. Then I took the 1 1/8 oz shot drop die from my old Lee LoadAll shot shell press and noticed it fit the RCBS tu...

RCBS bullet feeder die on the Load Master

I suppose this has been done, but if not, I can say "it works". I use lead bullets that are sometimes reported to jamb this die, but they pass for me and my main interest is to use the die for powder coated bullets which are supper slick, In my case, the time savings comes from the need to...

I just watched shadowdog's video on this subject and he was using the full length size die as the press stop on the subsequent die sets. As cleaver as that is, I believe it is better to let the press stop on the press stops and set the dies and primer rocker properly. No disrespect to shadowdog, he ...

I am not sure, but I do not "think" all shell plates give the same primer pocket height in the press, thus Ya gotta check and maybe adjust. It is important to check the primer depth when you make changes in set-up, same as when you are initially setting-up. The main thing to avoid is havin...

Well, I just finished the 1,000th round since inserting the replacement primer fixture. The one that was all bent up, seems to have self healed or taken its original shape again. I still have not figured out how it got mangled like that. Gremlins? I will order a spare and move on. I have enough powd...

Unusual large primer trough damage.

I was loading 45ACP with my cast 68 SWC powder coated boolits. Only change in set-up was at powder measure, where a new disc was placed to drop 5gr Bullseye powder. Everything going along sweet for about 25 rounds when I notice the primers are down to the bottom of the first "window". So I...
