    I have no doubt that they can be made to run. Youíre absolutely correct about the lack of instructions. Thatís one area that Lee does a poor job of across all their products. Even if they did provide all the information in a manual. People would...

    Been discussed a few times on this forum already. You have guys that want to buy one. And you have guys that donít want to because of the die blocks you have to buy.

    And how many Lee products do you sell compared to others? Is it the same 2:1 ratio? If so then all things are equal. If you sell 3:1 they have less problems. Iím asking because Lee sells more products than the other brands. So it needs to an...

    This thread isnít about rotary tumblers so there was no need for you to post about one. I have one. Itís a lot of steps and takes a lot of time. Yes, the brass is shinier at the end. But it doesnít make a round more accurate. And it doesnít...

    Reloading area is a hotel room in a not so free part of the country. Sized new 300 BLK brass. Will clean and finish processing this weekend. Thankfully they donít need to be trimmed.

    They ripped people off. They have a horrible BBB rating. No one should be doing business w/ them. They are exactly what a company shouldnít be. Iím honestly surprised theyíre using the same names. Figured they would change company and product...

    All that time absolutely counts. But the OP is talking about just 9mm. I can load a vibratory tumbler in less than five minutes. Let it run overnight and spend five minutes separating the brass from the media in the morning. The brass is then...

    If youíre looking to speed up production than any step performed off press doesnít help. If you donít mind tinkering to get it to run than a Lee progressive is an option. If you want it to run out of the box and keep running for years on end then...

    Yes, you will see a significant increase w/ a SDB. Even putting along on a 550 will increase your production rate. I use a LCT a lot. But if I want to crank out a lot of ammo I use the 550. Just a reminder that the SDB uses proprietary dies. ...

    Just run it longer if itís not clean enough. I have vibratory tumblers, an ultrasonic cleaner and a rotary tumbler w/ stainless media in it. I used to use a cement mixer when I was picking up about ten gallons of brass a week. Perfectly clean...

    This is correct. You should have received an email quickly. They also sent a follow up email stating that rebate has been approved, the gift card was being sent and to expect in ďxĒ number of weeks. The emails keep you informed which is...

    The OP is talking about a different rebate. I received the money from the black pack rebate weeks ago. I actually keep forgetting the card, they donít send you a check, is in my wallet. Itís certainly not a scam.

    You can use jacketed data for cast. You should be starting low and working up anyway. Of those powders youíd want Longshot. That and 800-X are the top performers in 10mm. The later meters like gravel but is my preferred powder. Iím positive...
