Holy shit-balls! Did you win a contest or something? How much did all that run you (minus the holsters)? I'd be curious to start reloading if I could get it for a decent price.

added a classic turret bc i dont like the priming system on the Hornady LnL. i had some powder drop onto the carriage and just spill over b/c i didnt notice that the priming tube didnt dispense a primer...

waiting on the small/large priming tray, hornady powder cop and maybe i will be complete...

i also got rid of the rcbs small base die for the AR. right now i have the lee pacesetter 223 set for the hornady LnL, which works awesome, and hornady 223 custom grade die on the lee classic turret.

kinda mix-matched, but i like the factory crimp that the lee pacesetter includes.

i have been trying to dial it all in and get things to my preference, not concentrating on mass production yet. once i get it all right, then they will be cranked out.

so far, 250 rounds.

Thats ok, going slow is a good thing...

Nothing more satisfying then knowing the nice tight group you shot was because you made them. :)

I had one of those a while back and loved it but I got mine before the powder measure had the interchangeable metering inserts so as long as I was doing one type of round it was golden. In the end I sold it and went back to the cheaper Hornady press but since they added the interchangeable pieces for the powder measure I wish I had it back. My reloading kit has more than paid for itself with just the 7mag reloads I do since I use the Hornady 139 grain interbonds. The just some advice on powder and primers they are much cheaper at gun shows and are about the only reason I seem to go to gun shows anymore.

cheaper? yeah, i probably paid near normal B&M pricing, 35$/1000 and 21$ for 1lbs H335. i live in mass, where we cannot purchase online primers/powder.

Dammit! I really need to get into reloading.

Not to de-rail your thread, but does anybody know of a website that compares reloaders? Eventually I'd like to crank out 9mm, .45ACP, .357Mag, 5.56, .308, .300BLK, and .300WinMag.

I have absolutely no clue in what I would need, but I know I need to stop pissing my brass away.

I like youtube.you can check out this guy... ultimatereloader. his videos are some of the best qualities, plus he uses and shows you how on many different brands/types of presses.

if I were to restart, I'd look into the lee classic turret purchased separately and without the kit. digital scale and calipers are the way to go. I like the cheaper lee pacesetter die set than some of the other more expensive rcbs or other precision dies.
