All of the above is submitted by a pauper, so you blessed people: go for it; keep the economy humming along! It is a great press that will run longer than you will. Tricia the Christmas Card Elf was amazing! Even changing from small to large primer isn't too bad. He is implying that Dillons never have a problem, which honestly anyone who understands anything about mechanical devices knows that simply is not true. Easy to swap with minimum adjustments. Both can need setup and maintenance, they are mechanical devices after all. That is what slows me down it loading all the primer tubes and handling all the cases. I chose safety over speed.
Each action type and caliber presents advantages and disadvantages, so make sure the action type or caliber fits the hunting or home defense purpose for which the firearm is being used. Yeah, I suspect it was given to him unless he won the lotto all the sudden, and suddenly Dillon and Redding are the best! The benefit over the single stage is that you don't have to change you dies for each stage. At this level looking at a used press isn't out of the realm of options and is a great way to get one's feet wet without emptying the bank. It's a very flexible system, and as noted above you can operate it in single stage, turret and progressive modes to suit your tastes and skill level. Even without a case feeder youd be pressed pretty hard to load faster than a LnL, and with a case feeder? So I decide to load handgun ammo on the Lee.
For the price it can't be beat especially when they throw in 1000 free bullets at that time now 500. As you become more proficient in reloading, you will fine-tune your processes based on available equipment, the firearms you own, and the type of shooting you will be doing most often. Regular reloading dies work fine. Although the blue coolaid looks really tempting, I'm going to have a big glass and report back. This is not a thread about turret presses, start your own thread if you wish to discuss them.
I'm the first 300yd target in the Semi-Auto category to beat so get get out there and shoot some 6X5 targets! Practice is still a Star. I might try the powder drop die Hornady put out this year to help with speeding up the process, and if it works, maybe buy a second Chargemaster, as the LnL has been proven to make really good ammo time and time again. As soon as I mounted the bench to the wall all my Hornady problems have gone away and I have no issues sometimes I'll get the case feeder jammed up or a case will fall upside down. The progressive is also much cheaper to start with. Try to mail gifts to arrive by Christmas, or your preferred winter holiday.
Folks who aren't gear makers, instructors, etc, now is a good time to toss some of their stuff you may want on your list, there may be some favorable discounts. If you'll eventually be loading some bigger bottle-necked rounds, in the 308 or 30'06 class, a single-stage press like the RockChucker is hard to beat. But here is my issue with him now. I was not planning on shooting this today, but the weather was so nice, I thought I had better take advantage of it and just get it done. Not to mention, the plodding pace that his videos move at sometimes. I dont think you can go wrong with either really. He does a great job.
Elizabeth resolved the problem in minutes, and explained what needed to happen to fix it for the others in the group, including sending a link to the correct invitation. My family lives in multiple provinces. This is a technical forum, do not call out other posters and keep posts polite. Once setup and running, they are super dependable. I've done a few hundred rounds on a friends single stage, so I mostly understand the theory behind reloading, but don't have much practice.
And I will keep the Dillon and Hornady guys out of that thread. Simply put Dillon for the money is a winning choice! I load just about all my handgun ammo on one, sit at the computer desk or kitchen table and load away. View Quote When I purchase a press, regardless of brand, it's gonna have a case feeder. Holy crap congrats Keith, that's awesome! Will all the down time it may equate to a 25% speed advantage over my little shit. The benefit over the single stage is that you don't have to change you dies for each stage. For a new reloader looking to jump in with both feet, I would recommend a Dillion 550.

Lack of Open Graph description can be counter-productive for their social media presence, as such a description allows converting a website homepage or other pages into good-looking, rich and well-structured posts, when it is being shared on Facebook and other social media. Any company has terrific customer service. Right now I do my reloading on a Lee Classic Turret Press. If you decide to go Dillon I will give you a Dillon primer alarm. If not for those two flaws I would have a Pro Chucker 7 beside my Pro 2K on my bench. Gary Late to the conversation, just back from a short hospital stay.
Sitting inside the house is just so much nicer. That's actually not the case. Things may have been changed or updated over the years but that was always the weak link if you plan to use one of those. I do not see people getting 80 cents on the dollar for Hornady stuff? Customer service is fantastic If you want to run at the top speed get the automatic primer feed and the auto case feed. With the Hornady case activated powder measure on mine I can rock and roll.
I know it is always fun and easy to spend others people money. Nah I did not think so! Dillon hands down as they retain value. I will also suggest a single stage. Moderator Registered: 1443205467 Posts: 536 Posted 1474505362 Got it done today. I've never touched or even seen a Dillon in the flesh now that I think back in it.
