    Hooked it up to the LNL AP and WOW! I can flat out reload now. No more messing with putting cases in station 1. Switching from .45acp to 9mm is no big deal (<5 minutes).

    Congratulations! Graf shipped mine today!

    How was your experience setting it up and dialing it in?:)

    Not bad at all. Thought the manual wasn't half bad. The diagram in back that shows all the parts helps. Maybe photocopy it and have it available while following the instructions. Make sure you have some wrenches and allen wrenches available.

    Also, I had to "remount" my press as I had it too far back from the edge of my bench. This keeps the cam wire from being able to drop down and adjust the timing of the v-block (pushes shell) and the shellplate. I think the case feeder manual recommends 2.25" from the edge of the bench.

    With the case feeder, make sure the press is securely attached to the bench. It is a good idea to anchor the bench to the wall or maybe the floor.
