    It begs the question: once you have stuck it on there with Black Max, and then decided it was the perfect location, but you want to then drill and tap it in; how do you remove it? Heat or a solvent?

    best spruce plates are the thick steel ones on a ballistic cast (H&G) mold. Mihec uses good ones on his molds too. Worse ones are the stamped steel lbt molds. HEAVY STEEL IS THE WAY TO GO. the weight allows you to not have to run the plate so tight...

    I got it mostly because I really like the Lee .430 240 grain mold. It is hard to beat in my 44 Specials. The 32 mold is a little brother to the 44. And they are both very accurate.

    where is this huge difference. On a 550 you buy a die plate and a shell plate. On a lnl you buy a shell plate and 3 lock and load bushings. You MIGHT save 15 bucks. Like is said, not my first rodeo. Ive used both and own both. Now if you had a 650...
