    Thanx for the recognition, I didn't think anyone read my posts... I only do pistol and simply put a de-primed case in the top washer, bring down the de-prime pin, find/push it thru the primer hole for alignment, and clamp the stacked wooden blocks...

    I suggest you take a look at the Pro 1000 too. Either way watch the setup vids here: https://leeprecision.com/help-videos.html :mrgreen: Edit: Commonly known by Pro 1000 owners is priming issues are related to the index adjustment, and is...

    Thanx :cry: Pics/vids @ that link are "old" design... Index pin is new, I have 2 RCBS older 5 stations, one with an index pin, one without and don't see any difference in operation. On the Pro 1000 most primer problems seem to be from an out of...

    I mix the OMS with NuFinish in a small prescription bottle, add it to the walnut media, and run it for a few minutes before adding the brass to my vibe tumblers. Hydrating the walnut media with odorless mineral spirits (OMS) cleans the primer...

    To me the Lee throws look to be designed to work well with the powder thru expander that's included in Lee die sets. Whereas the Hornady/RCBS are more of an adaption of measures designed many years ago into an "automatic" powder drop through what...

    I was introduced to the Lee drops when I bought a Pro1000 for 45acp. On both a Piggyback and Ammomaster Auto, I have replaced the RCBS powder drops with Lee Auto Disc/Auto Drum measures, and the RCBS drops are on a shelf gathering dust. Both...

    Something like this with enough 1ft square patio blocks added to the shelf to stabilize it. :razz: Really though, nothing beats attaching the back of the top to a wall for primer seating. :popcorn:

    My favorite portable bench is a grinder pedestal from Harbor Freight(less than $25 with coupon), with a wooden riser added for stand-up reloading. 25% of the cost of the Lee Reloading Stand linked to above. I put the scale on a separate shelf to...

    I often mention building/using a simple wooden riser but have never posted a pic. Here's a riser made from one 8ft 2x6, on a HF grinder stand, under a drill press :roll: Note the bottom wing shelves can be used for clamping/bolting it to the...

    I've given up on them and have switched to Dillon die nuts... I use 2 per die, locked together, no set screw needed. Their small hex size is better for use on any progressive, buy the wrench too...2. The nuts are sold in 5 packs with a wrench...

    I've used a dial/digital caliper all my working life, in many different industries, having learned a lot along the way, I'm sure others here have too. :mrgreen: edit: @BarkEater : sorry for the drift

    Funny you mention a "caliper thread" as I tried that on a "higher road" forum a while back and was "challenged" by the seasoned reloaders who just could not grasp the concept. That step measuring feature on the back is never used by most caliper...

    Kenstone replied to a thread RCBS Uniflow in Reloading Equipment
    I've read about baffles, have always meant to make/try one, but never have. I actually added a weight to the hopper on a progressive press after testing it for uniform charges, because tapping the measure is not practical. For small amounts of...

    Kenstone replied to a thread RCBS Uniflow in Reloading Equipment
    Yes all that, and weighing a charge thrown with the screw out 10 turns from zero would establish a powder amount equivalent for one turn of the screw (weight divided by 10). For that reason, I filed a reference line on the head of the screw so I...
