I've sent him two messages to find out cost, but no response. Has anyone heard from him.

Just to prove what a sour old fart I am I gotta ask WHY? How difficult is it to remove a loaded round at the time you insert the next case?

I applaud inventiveness, improvements and DIY projects but this is one that seem sort of unnecessary. If the goal is to automate the turret why not move up to the LM/pro-1000 and get more out put with each stroke?

I think it's one of those initial "neat" things you see and then realize, like you said, what for.

I'm sure that some will purchase and then realize it is not a help and some will think it's great.

I first looked at and thought that and think it was a thing of, "how does it work"

I don't even use my turret except for processing 223 brass.

Just an initial "wow" factor I guess.

Actually, I think this would be very handy. Heck its only 15 bucks. I still use my single stage press for a lot of my rifle brass and I wish he had one for that. I guess I'm the opposite, I get tired of handling brass accept I don't like progressive presses that don't offer me the accuracy. Turrets, in my opinion are the way to go and this is pretty neat. bought one, waiting and wondering... let you guys know when I know. :)

Have you actually proven that a progressive can't make ammo as well as a turret? I call that an old wives tale for sure.

I totally agree with TPGS. Either press will load with the exact same accuracy whether you use the auto disk measure or weigh each load and funnel pour to the case.

I have the Lee cast iron turret press . Fantastic press . It is setting next to my almost new LoadMaster .

I plan to continue to use the turret press for the lower volume calibers I load for .

I already have the dies and 4 hole turrets . The low production calibers would not justify the cost of conversion parts for the load master .

As far as the ejector for the turret press , I have the " opening " in the shell holder oriented somewhat to my left . I use my left hand to insert and remove brass , to and from the shell holder .

According to the you tube video , I would need to have the shell holder oriented yo the right ? I think this would make inserting brass into the shell holder awkward ?

God bless

Is it possible? I don't know. Is it practicable? For me that is the problem. To take a collection of fired bottleneck brass and run it through a progressive and achieve a quality result ain't going to happen. Think about it. Step one, the brass needs to be resized and deprimed. Step 2, some more case prep work is in store for that brass off the press. Then ya can refill the case feeders again to start the rest progressive steps. Then check out the COALs of the progressive cartridges. Opps the .02 let alone the .003 off the lands ain't happening with precision and repeatably.
Again it may be possible. But I don't handload 3000 bottleneck cartridges at a time or even 500. It's so much simpler with more control on a single stage or even a turret to interrupt the process to do procedures and checks on a platform other than a progressive.

Daboone, you're probably right if we're talking about refining the load to nats ass accuracy. When I work up tailored loads for a rifle, I still use the single stage. It takes all the guesswork out of the process and the small adjustments needed to really get a great load are easier. I havae used the LM to run the loads thru and the powder funnel in the charging die with good results, but it's easier on the single stage.

I will say that on my LM that I'm getting less than 1" groups from my venture predator in 223 just as the loaded rounds come off the LM.
Not one holers, but good enough to kill gophers at 200 yards. Now, don't know about farther out cuz I can't see them that far. lol
Thanks

Kicks brass/rnds down into a darwin bucket (5 gallon bucket w/fish net).. When i install bullet feed on it will be better and i need a light to see powder easy.

Something like this with mrbulletfeed.biz & a ramp made from aluminum shoots rnds in bucket. Just insert brass and check powder, the ejector from ebay works great. Ya need 2 risers for powdermeasure.
