Where did you get all the dies for it i’ve only been able to find sizing
dies(im looking for .223 dies)
Great video! Thanks for sharing. Any updates on the loader, things you like
or things you’re not crazy about?
Seems like the primers have an opportunity to flip themselves the wrong way
around when you pull the cotter pin. Have you ever had that happen, or have
them get jammed up as they dump into the tube on the press?
Great video, what kind of accuracy do you get from the powder measure in
I just received this exact same setup. I wondered if you had a series of
complete setup of the system. Im looking for any helpful hints.to avoid
potential problems. Thanks for any tips.
hey, can you tell me what you are combining in the powder drop spot in the
press? I cant find a hornady die that allows for a powder charge AND case
expansion, I feel like I am missing something pretty straight forward…
can you help me out here?
Fantastic setup. I am a .45 fan too. New to reloading and can’t find the
right “progressive” Returned a LEE 1000 very dangerous and not efficient.
Dillon Square Deal is actually no better. Priming system is horrible.
Returned once and still doesn’t work properly. Bypassing the primer system
loading them manually works great. LEE single stage still works best. When
you said uh oh “malfunction” NO machine seems to have gliding perfection or
close to it that I seek in a progressive. RCBS Pro 2000?
Buy a good reloading manual. It will have information about reloading at
the front and provide all the parts you will need for each cartridge you
intend to use. When you buy your press it will come with information on
which shell holders and parts to use.
I normally go through about 500 rounds in a single weekend.
I just got my Lyman 49th Ed. in the mail today along with 500 dogtown .224
55 Grain from midway. I figured out on my own that .224 actually will work
in my AR. Quite proud of that. What other manufacturer models exist like
the AP with full feeding, single pull setup? Dillon? Lee? Etc….
Now that you have had this press for awhile would you recommend it?
That is bitchen! Very nice! Hornady makes great products. I have some of
their titanium nitride die sets and I love them. The bullet collator looks
like my old HeathKit HiFi Turntable LOL. I would LOVE to get one of those
but the 1250 price tag, plus dies, powder, primers, etc… makes it
something I will have to ask Santa to bring to me for Christmas. How
accurate is the powder measure/charger? The Powder-Cop is a Brilliant idea!!
Thanks for watching!
nice setup man..
I decided to go with the LEE Pro 1000, cheap way to get into progressive
reloading, should be in next week. Eventually I do plan on getting a better
one, maybe a Dillon Super 1050, as I load a lot, and will be reloading
Nice vid! What was the total cost on the system?
I am brand new to reloading. Do you have to have a totally separate press
for doing Rifle? Shotgun? I know looking at the regular ones, my FFL says
you do, but he is in his 90s and might not be up to speed on the latest and
greatest. Please provide recommended equipment, part#’s for doing .45, 9MM,
.40, .223/556, .30 carbine, 30-06, 300 Mag, 300 sav, .243… etc.. etc…
I have a Tikka T3 .270, a DDM4 in 5.56 and a RA Ruc in AAC 300 Blackout and
I am interested in reloading for them as well as my handguns, I wondering
if you can use the bullet and case feeders for those rounds
Or point me in the right direction so I have a better understanding about
all of this.
Wow, looks very impressive and expensive, I want to get into reloading but
I have no clue as to what to do, buy or get. I’m learning though and I will
be on my quest to get a nice press. Would love to minimize operator error,
many options out there but I dont want a single stage press thats for
sure.. Great video, thanks~
“Pardon the mess …” WHAT? What mess are you referring to? Fantastic video!
Do you have a patent pending on the ghetto mod ?
@neutered10mm It is usually a little less cluttered around the work bench
but I had been reloading and stuff was scattered around. Thanks for your
channel BTW I watched a lot of your videos when I was deciding what press
super fast but classic over engineering, haha! Especially the projectile
and brass feeding system…seriously? I’d rather stuff my own brass in a
tube and hand place a bullet than deal with that setup. The rest of it is
butter! I didn’t realize how much little stuff slows you down. Very cool
