    lee app press idea

    Some one may have alread thought of this. I found this works with sizing bullets i take the breech lock bushing and screw it in on the under side, then attach pvc clear tube.The boolits slide on on down. it does not seem to need secured on a pretty good fit.

    That's a bit much for more then the 2-3ft tubing you're gonna need.
    I HATE auto-correct

    My guess , that was to show us the size and type tubing ,not a recommendation to buy 100.00 worth of tubing .
    For our $75.00 press

    Exactly what I did. Tubing from Home Deot was a little large diam, nothing a hose clamp didn't fix. I was filling the bottle pretty quickly, now I just run the hose into a coffee can on the floor. Arm tired before can is full !

    If you're gonna be stupid, don't pull up short. Saddle up and ride it all the way in.

    Sorry,
    Being House bound makes me snippy.

    Plus I watched that thing work on 3 different you-tube videos. The whole blasted thing "wiggles" at every pull of the handle.

    Regardless of the fact that I own an even dozen Lee molds, 4 sets of handles, 2 die sets and 11 sizing dies. I guess I'm just a Lee hater down deep.

    Oh, got 2 of the fcds. First one was mis packaged and Lee didn't believe me when I called. Rather then waste anymore time, I just ordered another.

    That taught me to immediately use anything you buy. If you wait 3 months you're gonna be out of luck.
    Didn't like the way the blasted thing worked anyway.
