    Scroll down to page 5 of the PDF for a photo of the Special Duty Kit. I thought it might be good to copy this but bend the top of the handle back behind the press about 4 to 6 inches. When pushing the handle down to full stroke the bend would not require you to lean down as far.
    Such a bent back handle would have to be long enough to clear the longest dies installed in the press.

    I have 4 different handles for mine. I have 1 stock, 1 stock with a Dillon roller in it, 1 longer handle with a 90 degree bend and a shorter handle, about 12 in. long or so for pistol stuff. I never use the L shaped handle as I have found no advantage to it. My normal handle is the stock one that has a Dillon roller fit to it, very smooth and easy on the hands. The shorter handle I made out of a complete Dillon roller handle that I re bent and shortened.

    Has anyone tried to make an after market spent primer catch, I've never seen the original primer catch bottle and wouldn't mind having something other then a plug or trash can underneath

    Also if anyone has a universal automatic she'll holder they wouldn't mind selling I'd be intrested

    Hello there Mr. Illinois coyote hunter ! rcbs mentioned to me that you may now be making the A4 shell holder.
    If this happens to be true ? I would certainly like to purchase one. The A4 is awesome, I have 4 of them, 2 which only have the universal holder, hence no good for re sizing the 6 dasher brass. Thank You Sir, frank

    Hi Frank,

    Yes I am! I am in the middle of a batch right now...among other things like work and life LOL! I am making a larger batch so I will "put you on the list". There will be plenty to go around. I will let you know when they are finished. Thanks!

    BTW, no payment needed. Do me a favor nd go on my vendor sponsor page and post you want one. That helps me keep track. Here is a link :

    Looking for an RCBS A2 with the removable bushing. I need it to complete my A series collection. Please let me know if you have one you want to get rid of. Thanks!

    I threaded the bottom of the ram on my Big Max and screwed a 45 degree elbow with a hose barb on it, put on a 2-3ft long pc of hose and put the end in a 5 gal bucket, takes forever to fill that. If memory serves I believe I threaded the ram 3/8 NPT, but it could have been 1/2.
