    I've had thrown primers occasionally.It is always one of the last two or three primers in the tube.If you hold the primer tube when it's almost empty it doesn't happen.Next time I use it I will add a weight to the primer column to see if that helps.

    Lyman sells a conversion kit or at least parts to convert the handle on the 450 to the 4500 style.I believe the 450 in question has a 4500 style setup missing only the handle.I have four 450's;two with the original handle;two with the 4500...

    Gorilla Glue was recommended on a forum recently.I don't like Gorilla Glue but I bought a container of it and tried it on some loose and cracked Lyman handles.So far it's working.Just messy to work with.

    I use 650 degree Tempilaq to anneal cases.I drop them in water.I read somewhere that quenching is necessary,probably in an NRA publication.

    It seems I recently replied to the this on a different forum or thread.If you bought the 450 off Ebay recently that I was watching it has a 4500 handle conversion done to it.It was missing the short threaded handle.If the all thread doesn't work...

    It takes a while for one of the heaters to warm the lube up.Try a propane torch to heat the lube sizer up.Try running the bullet deeper into the sizing die.

    Two All Americans listed on Ebay currently.Both have the turret that use shotgun dies.One has no adapter for the shotgun position.The other has an adapter but it appears to be to adapt to TruLine Jr dies.

    My Lyman Mag25 has been in service since Aug 2017 and has had zero problems.I use Idea,Lyman,RCBS,and SAECO molds including Ideal and Lyman HP molds so the mold guide works well.I've never used RCBS pots but they should work fine.I used Lee lead...

    KenT7021 replied to a thread Lost all my data in Cast Boolits
    I still have a large number of data sheets I printed out with a mimeograph machine during the 80's.More recently I've gone to using the Lyman data book.They both work well.I don't trust computers.

    They are worth owning if you like turret presses.They were made with two types of turrets.One was made to take a shotshell reloading die in one position.An adapter was furnished with a 7/8-14 thread so the press could be used for normal reloading on...

    I have one.The lack of leverage is a problem and pretty much eliminates resizing larger rifle cartridges.I use mine for short runs of handgun cartridges.I have the short handle installed on mine.I would not recommend it as an only press unless...

    I started buying from Graf's as a walk in customer during the 60's.They used to have steel drums of gun powder setting in the walk in store area.
