I've seen several videos on setting up a bullet feeder such as yours. Way cool I'm thinking. May try that on my progressives just for s"s and giggles. Why are you not crimping also with the seating die?? I only reload for revolvers and haven't found a need for a seperate crimp die..I've tried them (Lee) but found no advantage to them for my application...in fact in a couple instances (not all) they are a bit detrimental..

actually, just took a better look at your setup and noticed the Lee bullet feeder part....hadn't seen that used before...could you expand on how you have that setup...I like it...better than a "tube" running up to the ceiling... :D

yep

the lee 4 tube bullet carosel is just setting on a plastic tube. I glued a washer w/slot in one side to the gold thing. The slot holds black plastic carasel from spining.

I have been working with a db-9 in the crimping (dillon crimper) cause it want run much anyway. Your rite, just the seat/crimp is all ya need. Thats what i do with my sig938. I buy some stuff i dont need. I dont like much crimp. I like lee fcd on 45acp for the xds. And i have a dillon crimper for 45.

new base

i keep it wiped down with silicone spray (then wipe off) and eel snot on hard areas. i use eel snot on my pistols from ebay. Hickok45 taught me to clean pistols and my lcctp with alcohol. Then lube.

change up today
