This is where to ask questions and offer experiences about the art and science of ammunition building. Also observations about any acquired ammo.

Hello Wyr, welcome to the funny farm - get involved, if's free and doesn't hurt a bit :loco: :loco: :loco: :loco:

The only round that I use the Lee classic turret to it's full potential with currently is .30 Carbine. Even then I tend to dump each charge onto the electronic scale. I have noticed that if the auto disk gets bumped the H110 tends to pack down and it will throw an extra 3-4 tenths of a grain which is alot when I am loading full power 15gn loads.

I really need to start loading .45acp and even a half of a grain will not make any real differance when shooting steel plates at 11 yards.

It has taken a couple of years to accept that all that extra sorting of bullets and cases and keeping charges to plus or minus .1 gn makes pretty much zero differance in an "as issued" service rifle match at 200 yards. My scores are the same with HXP surplus or my 168 SMK handloads.

the Lee 4 Hole Turret Press was the best buy i ever made ,,,

i load since 2 years .38spec,45 acp,44-40 Win,45-70, 6,5x55,.303.8x57 and finaly 7,5x55

never any part to claim

i did not arrived the speed of loading cases like a Dillon 650 or similar Presses but they are in no way so universal lile the Lee TRP to use it as single state press or sizing die press .

i vote for this tool
