I just loaded 540 9mms on my LNL-AP, I had one case stick in the case feeder and found one case that was split, I never have primer problems with mine, ever. Short of those two things I had to stop for, it was just easy loading. If everything on it is set up correctly, it just runs, and runs. My LNL-AP is completely stock except for the tip/stop thingy I put on the bottom of the funnel where the case lands in front of the pusher. My LNL-AP has about 40,000 rounds through it. It still seats primers to .005" under. That's the biggest reason I've never went anywhere to see a Dillon, but I'm sure Dillon's run just as well as mine does. I have no loyalty to any brand, but they do have to work correctly for me. And what works correctly for me may not work correctly for someone else. I expect that's why some like Hornady's and some like Dillon's, I've always followed all the Dillon threads on here to learn about them, and I'm following this thread also. I would love to load on one sometime to see if it rubs me against the grain, as long as it had a case feeder, I bet I could run either one with no problems at all, after I have it set up. I don't know if I'd be happy with Dillon's powder measure though. I'd have to run one to find out. Highland Lofts, I'll be watching for your write up on the comparison. Hope you sell your rifle.
