You don’t know what you are missing out on mate
Turret does handguns. One of the orange crushers stays setup with decapper,the other two get used in tandem for rifles. They all get used enough that they get cleaned,wiped off,and lubed pretty durn regular.
I really like that press. I had all the bells and whistle on it including auto case feeder. I could easily run over 800 rounds per hour. I would practice and then reload for the week's matches. I could just keep up with enough ammo per week but it was a fun machine.
God bless you friend. My shooting buddy and I were just BSing about our houses and how our age was impacting maintenance and their value in the current market but where would we go bla bla bla. I mentioned housing for the elderly. He thinks even if you could keep guns where could one reload for them in a small apartment. Given our increasing liberal society it could be a problem.
[/QUOTE]I totally agree---with tools and firearms (S&W revolvers and 1911s).[/QUOTE]
I have worked with hand tools all my working life and I don't purchase tools by the name, the color, who uses them, or the cost. I have purchases tools from Harbor Frieght up to Snap-On and MAC. I buy tools that do their intended job well...
Hornady LNL progressive for known-good pistol loads, but I re-size and de-prime on Hornady single stage
Lyman turret press for pistol load development.
Hornady Single stage: Small batch loading (30-06), load development.
Lee Classic Single stage: Universal decapping die, less mess with punched out primers, inexpensive versitle tool
2 Hornady LnL progressive presses. One set to large primers, one set to small.
Dillon SDB .40 press. Because you can't be a real reloader without a Dillon (Tongue firmly in cheek)
I have a RockChuck too, I just hardly ever use it.
So sorry for you
I would love to have a Star Progressive, just because...........
was a Joke, don’t be mean
I find this room very satisfying to look at. Just the right amount of relaxation and a vacation from the world. Were the cup of hot Joe?
I still break out the RC IV every now and then,,, if for nothing more than a change of pace.
With the cold coming. I'll be sipping on hot chocolate. Thanks for the the complement on the room too.
