All I could add to erle's post Mike, is a genuine thank you for all you've done to improve the LLM. Because of your efforts, I got back into the LLM ( two of them) and now the Dillon 650 pretty much sets idle. Happy Thanksgiving to all the Men and Women in the Armed Services of this great nation, b...

Sorry to here that. As I recall, that design solved a lot of problems with the existing system. Well if Mike won't toot his own horn I will. I'm not sure of the "system" you're alluding to as I never saw that one. HOWEVER, I do use the priming system he now offers on his website and it wo...

Man, this measure has me bamboozled.....I posted this on another forum I just started visiting but I started with it here so thought I would add to my experiences with it here. Lately I've been thinking of maybe switching out my Pro Disk measures for these 'cause I really like the "footprint&qu...

I can't help with the question, but I can tell you I have one also. The one I have came on a used press I bought that was originally a rifle set-up from Lee. This shell plate carrier doesn't have the "bolt hole" next to the ejection chute for a case feeder. I have it laying around here som...

After loading a few hundred rounds in magazines the lube left on the cases gets my hands pretty grubby. Any cases I do lubricate I clean the lube off before firing. The way I was taught is that the lube left on cases will prevent the case from locking to the chamber wall when fired, this will cause...

ALL my reloaders are mounted on steel plates, and with the LLM, I did a cut-out as you suggest. Mine are mounted the same way as Sparky. I also have the steel plates bolted to a 10" high by 6" wide steel girder that's 5 feet long that bolts to the top of my reloading bench, like a BIG str...

Yes, I'd say you've been pretty lucky considering 2 Pro 1000's and 2 LM's to not have had ANY priming problems. If I were you I'd be buying Lottery tickets every week :lol: As far as the primers "bridging", pull the cover off the priming tray, take an exacto knife (or similar) and trim the...

You'd be really surprised at how much weight ie leverage the addition of a Pool Ball affords one in reloading sessions that are lengthy. Replaced my wooden balled handle with an 8 ball and not only is it easier to re-size brass, it's also very smooth and comfortable to use. Hi Sparky, I hadn't cons...

well find a tube that fits lee lever tight, maybe put a set screw in it. Then pool ball on top or maybe wood ball would fit. Paint same and put the bend in you want if any. Come on horesman, just mic it and hunt a tube. Its a good idea. Yep, it's a good idea alright. Just need to find the right siz...

paint it same color and put wood ball on it. Will look fine and you can bend it too. And it wont cost much. I have mill press and heat and metal. Not easy maybe for people without tools. Well, I have a shop full of tools, drill presses, oxy torches, two welders, wire feed and 220 stick, a plasma cu...

Well yeah, I could just go out in the shop and get a piece of pipe and use it as a "cheater" bar, but I was thinking/looking for maybe something a bit more aesthetically pleasing. Always kinda wondered why Lee designed such an unusual handle on the LM instead of just a "rod" like...

Loadmaster Handle

Anyone know of an "aftermarket" handle for the LM to give a little more leverage to the press? Loading some 44mags today using my Hornady Cowboy dies to facilitate my .431 sized bullets. The Cowboy dies have a larger expander plug similar to a Lyman M die that expands into the case rather ...

I don't use grease on my LM. I know it has zerks but I ignore them, I wipe down the ram then reoil using gun oil. I use a spray synthetic oil on the pivot points (not every time I use it) and a "gun grease" (very lightly) anywhere else I deem necessary (index rod, bottom of shell plate, et...
