Ian, Got my primer set up, Same as your picture, and I got it to
work ok, but after loading a box of 45 acp, I decided that I would
rather pick up primers by hand than to use the Lee primer. By hand
is just as fast for me, and I can see what I am doing without that being
in front of my line of sight. Thanks however for the information that
you provided. If there is someone out there who would like the set
I bought, will send it to them for just the price of postage.

Keeping my grandson Trevor in ammo has become an ongoing challenge.
He loves to shoot and will often times shoot 250 - 300 rounds when we go
to the range.
I have a Lee Classic Cast Turret press with auto index.
I neck size his 30-30's and seat fresh primers in 50 round lots.
Next, I flare the case mouths, throw the powder charges, seat the cast bullet and put on a very mild crimp with the Lee Classic Turret press.
I thought that you might like to see how I do it.

Ben, I just wanted to thank you for the idea, new at least to me, of your powder stand which allows use of any brand powder dispenser. Great idea, not real happy with the LEE press dispenser, but being able to use a Little Dandy, Lyman 55, or Uni-Flo makes a big difference

Handy cutting tools as you know, just need to place in a safe spot. As messy as my bench gets, better where they can be seen.

Great, glad that was a benefit to you.
In general, I like and use Lee equipment.
However, some of it is pure junk.

Yeah, the LEE pro auto disk powder dispenser looked like it missed the KISS principle completely. I took it out of the box and look it over and promptly put it back in the box where it remains. I've been removing the cases and filling them, then back to the press. The priming system on mine works great, so with the "Ben" mount, reloading life became simple. Back to KISS.
Thanks again,

I started reloading by hanging on the handle of a Lyman Comet, at 3yrs old. Priming .38spl cases with a Lyman 310 at 4 yrs old. I was Handloading before I started Shooting at Five. Cleaned lots of guns too.

Started My Kids the same way. I haven't loaded a Shotgun shell in 25yrs. My Daughter has loaded every shell. No bloopers either.

I and my Brothers worked for it, My Kids too.
