    Didn't mean anything other than I took the road less traveled.....and am paying for it as usual.

    Let me clarify, Hornady CS is top notch. I can’t imagine it could be any better. This was not the case even 8 years ago. Both RCBS and Hornady had to catch up to Dillon, but catch up they did. Any difference between them now is more imagination than...

    My LNL is such an early one I think most of my issues are "teething" issues. Dillon had a jump on Hornady. They copied a lot of their ideas from Star and carried some over from their Gatling gun. Hornady was re-inventing the wheel. When I see all...

    I called Hornady Customer Service and they are shipping me all of the parts to fix my issue. Should be here next week. If the problem still persists, they want the unit to work with until it is fixed. I like that. My CF dates to 2003-4 and there...

    OK, I really went over the press today. Priming works OK now. Lots of cleaning and a mild dusting of mica. Shell plate got cleaned too JIC. Replaced the retaining spring...it had a small kink that would sometimes prevent a case from sliding in...

    I loaded a couple of hundred rounds today NOT using the case feeder and all went well. I can see the problem with the case feeder but I'm not sure how to fix it

    I have a 550B and it does work. I am patient and very skilled with machines. Hornady service and I are on a first name basis. I've seen every one's videos, done all the tweaks. It's just not a very stable design.

    I've had a couple of LNL presses now since 2000 or so. One had the case feeder. I gotta tell you, this is a tinkerer's press. The primer feed is really sensitive to dirt. Look at it sideways and it will fail. When you first set it up, you have to...

    I've got an early H&R 58 caliber ML sitting in my safe. I converted it to 209 ignition three years ago. The bore is rough but it shoots OK using minne bullets and TC Maxies. I want $125 plus shipping to your door for it. Look at it this way, the...

    I still have equipment and in some cases, brass I bought back in 1977. In Alaska, at my AC&W site, reloading was impossible but factory ammo was cheap so I bought loads of Win .357 mag and shot it all. I have the cases and the boxes and am still...

    I began with Lee too. I bought their cheapest lead pot and a 577 minne mould. I was so green I used range lead for the .577 minne bullets. To this day I have the mould, the Lyman ladle and the lead pot

    I love Lee's factory crimp dies. They are a godsend on 32-20, 38-40, 44-40 and 45 ACP. Until I got an RCBS Pro Melt I had no idea what a poor piece of equipment my Lee bottom pour lead pot was. Ugh! The RCBS is so superior but then, you could by 5...

    Lee is hit or miss. The dies are ok, but the internal finish can be rough. The molds work, but they don't really hold up over time. Their push through sizing is ok, but tumble lube is messy, and it's a 24 hour process. Lee presses work but again,...

    I defer to Veral Smith of LBT fame. He indicates that a good lead/tin alloy like Lyman #2 sized .002-.003 over bore size with a good gascheck and of course, LBT blue will help you get jacked bullet accuracy and velocity out of cast bullets.
