    Congrats on the press, they are a lot of fun. I loaded a little over 1,000 rounds on mine without any issues and sort of put it away for now. With my work schedule it's been hard to shoot so I still have over 500 rounds left for the 40. One of these days I'll set it up for a few other calibers and get back at it, probably when it gets colder out and work slows down a bit.

    Have fun!

      Thanks, Just picked up a ton of supplies for soon I'll be going to 40S&W loading. Hope it is as simple as getting the 9mm dies to work is. :wink:

        This is my setup, I was stopping by Cabelas a couple days a week to see if they got any ammo in so I figured I would just walk over to the reloading shelves and as stuff would show up in stock I'd buy some.

          I'd love to see how that hand press works sometime. I also want to do a full video of the setup and reloading process for the Lee sometime because there are several little tricks I found that help make the process easily comprehended. :wink:

            http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=QouLWEi4pbU#! gives a good demo of the hand press. You can go even less $ with a $30 press where the hand press is $50 in the kit form. I do assembly line style,one weekend we cleaned all the brass, another weekend de-primered. Another weekend primered 300 cases because I have 6 plastic trays/boxes from factory ammo for storage. Then when some powder and bullets came in stock I loaded a few. I have 250 sitting in the boxes with just primers right now.
