    Hi,
    Just went to Kempf's and picked up the kit. Dave & Sue were great help lining me up for whats needed to start off with 9MM loads.

    Built a small area to set it up and today started to put it together and such...

    However the LEE manuals seems to me in this point of my reloading adventure some what vague.

    Are the dies in there proper positions in the pic below, I believe so.
    Next how far down should they be placed?

    Next gotta install the Pro Auto Disk powder measure and the L&S safety primer


    I'm looking around on the net for more info/pics but wanted to post here also for any more tips or "need to do first stuff.

    TIA, Tom

    Is that the "auto-index" press? If so, in the direction of rotation it's decap/size, flare/powder drop, seat/crimp, crimp(4 die). If it's not auto-index the dies go in the same order cw or ccw depending on how you want turn your turret. The info that came with your Lee dies should tell you how deep to set them. Before you set your seating stem, screw it all the way into the die and use a marker to put a line from the stem to the die body, when you get your seating depth set, count the revolutions from fully seated and record that number for that bullet brand, style and weight. When you change bullets you just look up your info, screw the stem all the way in and count the turns out to be very close to where you were.

    Go to this page for great videos on using your press.

    (Edit to add; check out the single press die adjustment videos for the process to adjust die height.)

    The turret will turn counter clockwise. It looks like your powder and FCD need to change places.

    Dies in wrong position--the turret rotates counterclockwise

    The dies are in backwards--follow the instructions here--it is the best link to help you set the thing up--

    This link will give you some tips on using the Safety Prime.

    You need to change the resizing/deprimming die in place of the charging/expanding die.
