I took some pictures of my Loadmaster rebuild project . Might be useful if you're having problems with yours, especially with primer detonation, case feeding and indexing.

I never had a primer detonation on this one myself, but when I got it there were a number of primer feed assemblies, all of which showed burns and scoring, so I reckon the previous owner was pulling his hair out about that.

I don't know how old it is for sure. It looked pretty banged up and all the parts coated in surface rust, so it had probably lived at a coastal region with high humidity for a while.
