    Depends on the brass, the way you size it and how heavy a load you load in it. You can use a taper crimp and not have to worry about crimping in the Bullets crimping groove. Max loads will make a case grow. I learned this when loading for...

    I used a RCBS Primer Pocket swager to clean the crimp out of 1,000 G.I. .45ACP cases, 40 odd years ago. Pushing on it to release the cases gave my right forearm a case of permanent Tennis Elbow. And to make matters worse, the Primer Pockets were...

    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.

    The Hornady Spray Lube is what I use, in a Sinclair Spray Lube block(Brownells). It has only 2 rows, and I wait at least 10 minutes for the 1st block to dry before I start sizing. That's the problem most have that fail with the Hornady Spray Lube....

    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.
