New Loadmaster first observations

Postby Capt. Bob » Thu Jun 29, 2017 6:14 am

I have my new Loadmaster up and running. Have loaded a couple of hundred rounds of 9mm and 40 s&w. No problems so far. I did not crash and burn as some on other reloading forums have suggested about the LLM. The thing runs smoother than I was expecting. No flipped primers or misalignment or any pitfalls so far. I do have a couple of observations and questions though. First thing I learned fast was to keep primer though full (duh). Second, I a'int so fond of that triangle primer tray. I like the round one on my hand primer better. There is no difference between the "lock" and "on" position on the thing. I use Winchester primers so I have the shield in place but I question if this is needed. Reason being that it says in my instructions that came with my hand primer to use only CCI and Winchester primers with it. Now they say CCI and Remington with the system on the LLM. I do have a couple of questions so far that I can't find anything on them on this forum. When I unpacked the box, I found a place for everything in the box except two screws and a white plastic piece that looks just like the flipper on the indexing rod except the color. Not too concerned about the screws but I am wondering is the white plastic part a spare flipper? There is no mention of it in the instructions. Also I am looking for Ideas on how to store my turrets with the dies and powder dispenser in place when not on the press. In the short term I have two but I am expecting more when I get my rifle loading moved over to the LLM. Thanks for any advice.

I have 2 LM's and both came with a spare flipper and I believe the 2 screws for the blast shield (mine didn't come with blast shields, just the mounting screws). All of my flippers are different colors (grey, red, and white) but are the same.

As for turret storage, a few places make metal brackets that are wall or pegboard mountable that will hold them, and I've seen wooden ones also.

Here's one from InLine Fab....

Many other out there or make your own out of wood. Here's a google image search for ideas...

Capt. Bob, hello and welcome.

The screws are probably for the bracket to hold the completed cartridge catch bin.

Look here for a couple ideas on turret storage.

I had a friend make me some 3D printed plastic holders that attach to the holes in a standard pegboard. I think the pattern can be found at 3D Thingverse web site.

Try something like this. Just an old cabinet and rubber covered nails.
