    Had Good Luck with My Kids 1894CS, the Saeco # 354 - 180gr FP GC over a stout load of 2400. Light as a feather, did a lot of Jackrabbit Stomping back in the day. Takes a Williams FP Receiver sight or Low Power scope.

    Just empty the powder out of your measure when you finish loading for the day. Titegroup isn't that hard to empty back into the "Can".

    Lyman #55, no knocker though. I prefer to tap the handle on the up & down. And you can adjust it to throw 1.0grs of Bullseye for .32Short&Wimpy. And the Hornady L-N-L with the Micro Stem for the small Pistol Rotor.

    Should not make a difference. Make up a couple of dummy rounds. Check that O.AL. is within specs. Do a plunk test. And then a cycle test in that lever.

    I have a Lee 6cav of this Bullet. Use the same powder charge as I do for the Lyman #356402. A tiny bit less accurate, or maybe not. It shoots the same as far as I can tell.
