    Yeah, 25 bucks? That's hard to pass up. I might get one to mount upside down for bullet sizing Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    The one time I ran cases lubed I used the Dillon mix (alcohol/lanolin) and man it made a mess of the feed tube. Not to the point to cause issues, but it quickly soiled my otherwise clean Dillon drop tube (oh well. It's like the first dent you get in...

    When the turret head lifts, which it's designed to do, it seats against the top, which is flat. It's not crooked. The toolhead lifting won't cause any APPRECIABLE runout, and it doesn't matter. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    Coal variation is likely due to bullet shape variation. Change to measuring CBTO and you'll see that pretty much go away. Oal should only be used to make sure rounds fit in a magazine. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    Keep in mind that guys like David tubb and Jon whidden load their match ammo on a Dillon 650. Little different animal than the lee, but goes to show you donít need some massive immovable beast of a press to get match winning ammo, even amongst the...

    I loaded a bunch of precision on the Lee turret I had with cheap Hornady dies. After upgrading to a massive 0 frame cast press from the 60's probably and a 250 dollar die set, I started chasing the load I had on the Lee. I wasn't able to get quite...

    Keyholing usually is a stability issue, which means they need more speed. There's a handy stability calculator that you can put in your bullet dimensions and barrel twist rate and it will tell you if you're stable enough. Sent from my SM-G975U...

    Mine printed in just under 2 days. 6-8 layers and I think 10% infill. I believe it was cnc kitchen on YouTube that showed that wall/"shell" thickness had more an effect on strength than infill. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    Are you sure it's the expander that's causing it? How are you going about measuring that they are getting swaged? Factory crimp dies are notorious for causing bullets to get swaged down. I've never had issues with my Dillon expander not being able...

    I keep them in small bags. Haven't labeled them, but since I only have 3, and not similar sizes (.401,.357,and . 452) it's easy to tell which is which. I really only have one mould per die, other than 452, so I keep the top punch with the die, other...

    While I didn't make my own, I got a screen door hinge basically from Lowe's for 5 bucks. 18 inches long with a 9/16 od I think it was, which, stretched just a tad, fit perfect. It was only a 2lb spring. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    You might need to just pull the flipper plate out a little bit. For my 9mm jhp I've found about an eighth of an inch is prefect. Too far back, it flips EVERYTHING, nose up to nose down, and nose down to nose up. To far forward and nothing gets...

    Ok, so I've run into another issue, with both 265 grain Keith style .452 and a 152 grain round nose 9mm. The front of the ramp piece, that screws onto the base, is too abrupt an angle. The bullets begin to rotate, hit the ramp, and get pushed back...

    I printed the plate for nose up feeding... In pretty sure at least. Once I get another fitting thing printed, so I can screw the plug in, I think I'll be good to go. I discovered if I pull the flipping plate out just the perfect amount, it will flip...

    Ok so I got the photo switch wired up. I got the 10 rpm 370 motor, which I feel is on the fast side, it doesn't slow down much before it just stops. I do have an issue where it either won't flip anything, or flips everything. Then bullets go...

    Post #971 has a link to feeder dies. I think most that buy a die, and use it on a Dillon press, use the daa die. I'm not buying anything else from Saul though. For my spring, I just got a spring that looks like it's for like a screen door. 2 ish...
