    The Dar, what's the difference between pistol or rifle when reusing primers? If they work in a pistol why can't they work in a rifle? Leo

    I had to look through my Lee FCD's to see how they compare. The bodies all look the same on the out side. The collets are different lengths. So swapping the collets around might not work. I don't load for belted cases , so I don't know just how...

    I think that reloading tool manufacturers find that doing the R&D on tools such as mic, calipers and such is much to costly. They can get them made overseas for a lot less and still be quality tools. I have several calipers. The one has the brand...

    You can find copies of the instructions sheets that come with the 310 tools on Ebay. Perhaps some one with a set could send you a copy. They list the dies, and how to adjust them. Leo

    I use the Ly,an 55 measure. To set the measure I weigh out the charge on my Lyman scale. I then open the slides most of the way. I then pour the measured charge into the measure. Tilting the measure around to get all the powder down in the chamber....

    On hay balers there is a mechanical counter that is hooked to the arm that determines the length of the bale. As the hay moves and reaches the right length the ram trips the lever. As the lever drops it pulls the arm on the counter. They look like...

    I think a lot of the Lee haters hate them just because they are inexpensive. They think if they sell at that price they must be junk. I doubt a lot of them have tried Lee tools. There are a few that bought Lee and were not satisfied and call all...

    I guess I might be wrong on which is older. I haven't read that part of my Lee book lately. I do recall he started the Lee company then got pushed out. He then started Lee Precision. Leo

    I've read most of this thread. My opinion on the question is the color. Each press out there was designed by a team that has specific ideas on what a press should do. No two teams came up with the same list of what the press should do. I don't...
