Hornady did this when they went from the Ejector to EZ-eject. All they had to do was cut a groove on the bottom for the nub on the shell plate to clear. The problem arised afterwards, the shell plates warped. The procedure if done right worked but required the shell plates to be annealed prior to machining then reheat treated after wards. And even some of those warped. So even if you go this way it's a possibility that it will not be usable afterwards.
Sure not as fast as the progressive but would get you going and could always be used for small batches later on.
I do most of my ammo on my LNL progressive but still use my old Lee 3 hole turret for small batches and load workups.
Not saying this is the best option but just throwing it out as a thought.
I’m already doing that with a Lee single stage and can load more than I’m shooting these days.
I have tried a couple times and not had any hits. Ill keep trying
#16 is in stock here.
I was finally able to get a case neck turning rig at non gouge prices.
I could get a primer pocket swagger tool at non gouge prices today, but I have more brass than primers, from all the new gun owners mag dumping at the range. So crimped brass is set off to the side till I can get primes at non gouge prices and by then I should be able to get at primer pocket swagger tool on sale.
Your shell plates will be in stock before too much longer.
I was keeping them to use with my Rockchucker, which will probably never happen.
If interested, PM me.
I’ve had zero luck with optics and ammo. They say they have it then when I try to order it no go.
Did you get the #16 from Natchezss or are you still looking for both?
I am sure there are other sources, those are just two I found after I googled “RCBS #10 #16 shell plate”.
Here is another #10 from a different vendor.
Waiting on a pm from a member. I actually google this once a week and always look at Natchez. They’ve never had either until now. This gives me hope.
I sent you a PM with pics.
Surprisingly my LGS called me this morning and said they got in one 88816 shell plate. I went straight in and bought it for $40.00
Now hunting just 88810 for now.
That bottom link in #16 still says they have one in stock or is it the hunt that you enjoy.
I somehow missed this. I truly appreciate this. Hope I can repay the favor someday.
