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...

I'm loading 9mm on my LM and have used the FCD at times. I've also loaded them on my RCBS progressive press using Lee dies. I was getting the same Ka-Chunk from the expanding die (hard coming off the expander), and like was mentioned before, I "polished" the expander and it does work bette...

Loadmaster doin' good

Was having priming troubles with the used LM I bought awhile back and made a couple posts about it. I decided that I needed Magic Mikes help to solve the issues. I received the reworked priming and carrier a couple weeks ago and can honestly tell you all, I've ran just about 1,000 9mm's through it a...

Lee Auto Drum Powder Measure tests

Received the Auto Drum today, and of course like all of us do, had to get it out and going. Took it apart and cleaned it with alcohol, washed the hopper with soap and hot water, put it back together and ran a complete hopper full of BLC-2 powder through it to "season" it. So here's a coupl...

That's another thing I like about the Loadmaster press. When the case comes out of the powder charge station, it's right in front of you and is easy to see what the charge looks like....powder check OR powder cop die really isn't necessary. But you do have to look at the case.
