    Most of you will likely roll your eyes at this but I've had a couple of people ask me how this works. Pretty self-explanatory but still thought I'd make a quick vid for the noobs like me. :)

    Actually, after seating the bullet I stop half way down and remove the finished round like you do but then I turn the turret once and when I bottom the ram the turret turns again to the sizing die. I find that works well and you don't have to use the handle an extra time.

    Cool idea. I'll try it. I think I'll stick with my method though as it gives me time to place the completed cartridge and grab another piece of brass.

    Hey, I wasn't telling you your way was wrong. Anything that works for you is right, I just do it a little differently and added my way to the discussion.

    I wasn't upset. I really will give your method a try. :)

    Do you rotate the turret with your right hand or your left? I assume the left?

    I rotate it with my right hand while using my left hand to place the completed round in a plastic case.

    (I didn't think you were upset)

    Cool, thanks. I assume you stop the ram partway down so you can rotate the turret without damaging the ratchet... Does yours stay in that position? If I let go of the handle the ram up, the handle falls and raises the ram. I keep it well lubed, though.

    As I said in post 2, yes I stop half way down.

    My ram stays right there when I let go of the handle.
