    I do think we should express why we like about a tool or equipment and what we don't . I don't like some of the tools from Lee but that is goes for other brands as well. Some of the Lee tools are defiantly made to get a guy started as cheap as...

    Good post Nothing wrong with enjoying Well built and finished quality tools. And dies have different features that appeal to us in function as part of the whole package in our process. But I don't think on the target there is going to be any...

    So do you think the folks who say they have had years of good service from Lee dies are lying ? Or do you think they are to dumb to tell the difference between a tool that works and one that doesn't ? I think your post says more about you than...

    Battis have you considered trying 223 brass for your 351 ? The case diameter is very close if the rimless case would function in your rifle.

    How right you are GWS , and as far as know it is also the first press that will accept die or shell holder top or bottom or both . A very innovative tool.

    My first impression was man this thing is tiny ! And it is I don't believe it is intended to replace a heavy press , But to size bullets and deprime cases and remove primer crimps . People are using it for all of these and more , most are finding...

    Neck tension is for more than controlling burn it also helps the cartridge stand up to handling and helps support the bullet from set back during feeding on repeaters and in tubular magazines . There is a reason for the recommendation of bullet...

    I don't know it mine is unique in the way it positions the case for decapping , but one of the issues you have mentioned and I have seen is the shell holder has to be positioned nearly perfect or the case will not load into it. The over size shell...

    I agree , when new to the app a person might want to use it 5 or 6 sessions to get a good feel for cause and effect of how it is set up before doing mods on it . It will work really well as it comes. I have found for decapping handgun cases that I...
