Hi all- For the past year I've been working on a project that's been a lot of fun- complete HD video coverage of all 4 "5 Station" progressive reloaders in common use. I now have the Hornady Lock-N-Load AP, the Dillon XL-650, the Lee Loadmaster and the RCBS Pro 2000 in my shop with rifle and pistol setups.

I have recently uploaded my first Lee Loadmaster video:
Loadmaster Loading 45 ACP (HD) (http://ultimatereloader.com/?p=632)

**Edit: Just added two more videos (two part caliber conversion video series):
Loadmaster caliber change 45ACP to 357 Mag Part I (http://ultimatereloader.com/?p=653)
Loadmaster caliber change 45ACP to 357 Mag Part II (http://ultimatereloader.com/?p=655)

And am planning to fill out this video series here in the near future (showing different pistol calibers, rifle calibers, caliber changeovers, etc).

I'll also have RCBS Pro 2000 videos up shortly (next month or so?). I also have something special in store. More on that later...

So, if there's anything you want to see for 5 station progressives, please let me know.

Here's some screenshots:

Well your website would be an excellent place to go if one were looking for a progressive.

Thanks. I also have a series on the Redding T7 Turret press, the Hornady LNL single stage, and others.

I've thoroughly enjoyed the videos you've done. I'm especially appreciative of the fact that you use good, bright lighting and a tripod. Also, the higher quality camera and editing make for a marked departure from most of the 'you-tube' dreck floating about.

Thanks for posting this Lee video. Not all of us can drop the money needed for a full Hornady setup, so it's nice to see a 'discount' progressive getting some attention. My own Loadmaster is in a box waiting for Christmas, so I'm soaking up as much info about these presses as I can. To that end, I've watched most of your other press videos since most of these machines seem to share qualities that would help with my particular brand.

Hospital-grade clean reloading bench is amazing, and video quality is way superior to the one on lee and on loadmastervideos sites.

A few notes.
1. You have spilled a primer at 2.44. Be aware to find it, and in the future use something to prevent this.
2. After filling powder measure it is recommended to drop couple of powder charges into a fired shell and put the drops back to the hopper before validating the charge. It may not affect W231 measurement too much. However with some flake powders the first one or two drops may be less than the others, which may result in dangerous overcharging in the rest of the batch.
3. Important part is how to adjust dies and priming system. Wish you cover this, or refer to instructions/videos.

Very nice! The progressive press is pretty nice! Very nice videos, nice lighting, could use a little more volume (yes I am deaf). Edit: Someone messed with my computer volume, your volume is just fine :rolleyes:

thanks for doing this :D

If Lee were smart they would purchase this video from you and use as a promo. I agree with others that the addition of die adjustment would make it even better as an instructional video.

Awesome job.

I have been using a Lee classic turret for a few years and think I will get the loadmaster after watching your video. Lee owes you some commission.

and I was pretty impressed with the site project overall. I really appreciate the investment you have made to date. IMO, the quality of the videos is excellent overall; quibbles I have are of little bearing on the benefits to the viewers.

Good job!

Absolutely great video. Very will made and exceptionally informative. Just watching your video has answered many questions I have had about a progressive. I have loaded on a Lee Classic Turret for a couple of years and have thought about upgrading. Now your videos make it even more tempting. Thanks for the time and effort.
