    Having 4 (or 5,7,10) stations allows the use of a bullet feeder die, powder cop, seat/crimp separately, etc. My goal in configuring a "progressive" is limiting what my left hand does to one operation during a cycle, placing a bullet or placing a...

    Moon clips could be made via a 3-D printer... Lots of shooters/reloaders have 3-D printers and have made other things, but I'm not one of them. :mrgreen:
