    "Hollow up" is how I assemble mine, based on the pics on the box and at HF. Probably too late to be any help for you... I set the top plate upside down on my bench to build it, worked well. And when I got to the shelf I put pins thru all the...

    Once you have the seater set, just measure the stem with you Caliper and write the number down in your loading log. You can reset the stem to this number when loading that bullet again. I "measure" the stem on my powder measure this way too, to...

    I bought a Piggyback (1st gen) and struggled thru the clap trap linkage/adaption of the Uniflo pm that dumps powder on every stroke regardless of any brass under it. RCBS TRIED to fix that on the PB II by adding more linkage/clap trap complexity...

    Yes it is, you won't be disappointed if you buy one, a solid stand. It's a little high for sit down loading unless you sit on a stool, and a little low for stand-up loading without a riser (something like in my pic). ...

    Nice... yep, and you can even add a riser for cheap: Sorry for the drill press pic Putting a couple of $2 patio blocks on the stand shelf will add to it's stability too. :mrgreen:

    Yes, the reason MB bullet needs to be seated deeper is the ogive shape: MB bullet no step: Other bullet with step: Aftermarket barrels are known to have tight chambers with short throats. Many are returned to be "opened up" because of...

    I bought Hornady bullet feeder dies over RCBS because of the plastic parts. I detailed them before using them: disassembled, filed/stoned/polished all of the burs off the slots (inside and out) of both collets, the holes at the upper end of the...
