    I spent the day cleaning up the garage and started to set up a new LNL press I picked up Friday. I'm currently using a 550B setup that I'll be re-homing soon.

    I haven't loaded anything yet, but almost have everything setup and ready to spit out some 9mm. First impression is that it's a very nice press. I really like the way the do the primer feed/seating system. The interchangeable powder measuring drum is pretty slick too.

    I reload for about a dozen calibers. I'm gonna go broke buying those darned LNL bushings for all those dies. :(

    I feel your pain. I just recently replaced my old Projector with an LNL, and I reload many calibers too.

    Congrats on the LNL. I am sure you will like it. We need a follow up after a few hundred rounds. :)

    If money is tight, you don't have to purchase bushings for all your dies. You can just lock the o-rings at the proper height, and unscrew them from the bushings. Not as convenient for sure... but it's less initial spending.

    Thanks, thorn. I thought of that too, but that's gonna get old pretty quickly. Imo go ahead and purchase about 20 of those suckers.

    I bought em 10 at a time as I needed them. I still haven't loaded a couple calibers since getting the LNL, so they have not been set up yet.
