    Randy, both are just handpresses and Lee's inexpensive little Handpress vs. your excellent handmade device does have a very real difference worth considering. Cadillacs are nice but buying a Cadillac when a wheelbarrow is all we really need is a...

    I know for sure that Lee's lead pots are junk. Ditto their presses, dies, scale, powder measures, case trimmers, molds, etc. I know it because I've read it so often. Of course I must admit that all of my own Lee stuff works fine (When used...

    That's an odd statement, apparently based on your own hearsay because you cite no personal example. Fact is, virtually everything written in scripture is either by personal knowledge or direct revelation from God and retold by personal knowledge....

    Anyone going to God's perfect heaven has to have a perfect, totally sin free life record but only ONE man has ever accomplished that. Therefore, in order to get to heaven, all imperfect men must be accorded that one man's perfect life record or...

    I've been reloading since 1965 and have used a lot of different kinds of powder run through several different brands of powder measures. Seems our powder measure engineers have a clear understanding of the powders we commonly use because other than...

    There you go. I get (I stay!) a bit excited contemplating the coming Rapture, and have for decades because there are no prophecies left to be fulfilled before it comes but, excited or not, your post is the bottom line for us all isn't it? I...

    Make a standard type base for them. You could make it out of plywood or a piece of 1x12. Cut it the correct diameter, put a 1/4" rod in the center, and screw it down using the existing tabs. After that, a standard tumbler bowl will fit. Sent...

    To YOU, the coming rapture has no great meaning and staying ready is certainly the proper goal for all of us. But eminence of the sudden call for God's people to "come up here" is exciting and the very thought of it has daily meaning to a lot of...

    Those appear to be new cases. Chamfering alone will probably be enough to let the bullets get started without hanging up on the mouth. A little belling/flaring will assure it.

    Good job Boaz. I would like to isolate and address one line in all of that because it gets so misused and distorted by many of today's "feel good" prophets: That line does NOT mean we get physically healed as some say because everyone...

    Not sure what you're driving at. I haven't claimed a great (or even small) automatic increase in accuracy will come from using Lee equipment. What I'm saying is that what you call "slop" isn't. It means Lee's bit of die looseness isn't a...

    Sloppy really isn't the word. That "O" ring isn't there to "center the dies", it makes a soft but secure fit to the press so that, centered or not, the dies have enough room to precisely self align with the cases. And it works very well too. At...

    That's not only the truth but it should be obvious. When the makers give us new powders for whatever reason they simply give it a new label, to do otherwise would be stoopid and those guys ain't stoopid! But, some of our number do insist on...

    How many? I suspect a lot of people have felt the same as you for much longer than 2000 years! But, I ask, what does that "prove"? The answer to that is nothing; the errors of the past don't negate the reality of the coming future. Read 2 Peter...

    My 25 year old PACT Pro is still like new but, while I'll test anything for anyone, I let virtually no one else shoot over it. I have two 3" x 10" strips of cardboard I set edgewise over my screens to block the sight line during setup. Then, if...

    That clump of lead you're seeing at the case mouth is obviously being shaved from one side of the bullet during seating; the cure is to bell/flair the case mouth enough to actually let the bullet base set fully inside the mouth before seating. It...

    I'd suggest you don't get hung up on OAL or powder charges based on specific bullet designs. Every firearm is an individual, each one is law unto itself, and there are no magic formulas for each bullet type. First, find a crimped seating depth...
