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...

On my 9mm I set my COL at 1.125. This is using 115gr plated RN bullets. This is the length my 9 seems to like. I rarely load anything to a book min OAL .

I've made some separate posts on my experience with the Auto Drum and a couple issues it had. After replacing the "wiper" it's been solid. Just reloaded some 223 with 55gr FMJ using 25gr. CFE 223 and it dropped on the nut. Weighed every drop and had ONE out of 20 that went 25.1...not a big...

Ordered a couple new elastomer wipers from Lee (free) and installed one in the Auto Drum measure. That cured the leaking problem and it's back to throwing charges within a tenth or so (depending on powder) and no leaking. Also when I disassembled the measure after use there was no powder left in the...

I don't think the LM would be much smoother (if at all) than the Pro 1000. When the shell plate is being indexed on the LM it's a fairly abrupt movement unless you push the indexing rod in very slowly. If you have "powder" near/at the top of the case I believe you'll get some jostled out. ...

Lee Auto Drum Powder Measure update

Okay, I've had this measure for a few days now and the more I've used it the less enamored I am with it. It's starting to leak a bit with finer powders like H335 and H110. Not a lot, but enough that it annoys me. I ordered a new elastomer wiper for it just in case that's the problem. (?). Also It se...
