Do a search of the Load Master forum for LED or light. You'll get a lot of results for other things, but you'll also get a lot of results for what you're looking for. The topic has been discussed many times here.

Steve, its old outdated, Rather see you do the spring one. Much more postive. But if ya hav to screw up, just get a longer screw,nut,&washer in shell keeper after primer.

ok thanks Mike, I was working on it today. Had to get out my big hammer, but I'm getting close. Loaded a couple hundred 223s this afternoon. Press is really operating smooth.

I got the chain working going through the original hole. (I'm talking using it on the Hornady linkage with RCBS measure), The only time this chain will do anything is if the drum on the measure sticks open, because it already has a return spring. After I get some confidence in it I may do away with the chain. I'll have to wait and see how it goes, I have never had trouble with the chain being there with the Lee measures.

steve, no totally sure what were talkin about but if its about pro lee hopper and chain: Iam telling u which is better (the spring on the pro) IMO and prob your too if u try it. The cain works,but spring is more positive and out of the way. But : i think you talking bout a different color hopper. Thats why i put pics up! Photos speak.

This is what you want:

As an aside Steve; CL said you might have some experience with the FS COBRA in 380. Good/bad ? I have a chance to pick one up Friday for $100.
Your thoughts...

FS Cobra is new to me... I don't recall anybody coming through the class with one, so I can't offer any advice.
