    The rcbs is a little finicky and will not release the bullets if they are oversized or coated. I may upgrade to the hornady at some point. Inertia pullers seem like a terrible idea on several aspects but I know many would disagree.

    Hitek coating is a great way to reduce mess. Both inside the gun and out!

    Don’t overlook Burris scopes! Lb for lb I believe them to be the best value in scopes today. And I own several SWFA scopes including the 5-20HD.

    I got the smaller Hornady case prep trio and love it but itís too slow. It runs on a 12v wall wart. So I decided to hot rod it to 18v and it runs just fine and way faster. Iím going to pump it up to 24v. Well worth the 80$

    If I have one main gripe about them it’s that I wish they loaded from the left instead of the right. I would prefer to keep my right arm on the lever full time like my other presses.

    most people charge in the 550. Otherwise there’s still operations that could benefit like expand, seat, crimp, that’s three stages in one pull. Or if he decided to charge in it, okay. Maybe math isn’t my strongest skill, or maybe I don’t have any...

    I’ve found it quite easy for a droplet to stay in the hot mold for a long time. When the surface is hot enough to cause a vapor barrier it will protect the water droplet from wetting out on the metal and flash off. So I try to keep an ear tuned to...

    Uhm, well if you think swinging the lever 4 times vs 1 time for the same amount of process completed is similar then there’s no advantage. But to me, that’s a noteworthy advantage over the turret press. To put another way, on the turret press...

    Because one handle pull on a turret completes one operation but one handle pull on a bl550 completes 4 operations. Also replaceable tool heads stay set up for caliber specific.

    You just have to crank on them with pliers a little and they stay just fine. Some guys can’t stand the thought of teeth marks on any of their stuff though. It’s a great system once you get over that aspect. I hand tight all my dies except the...
