The original bolt I was going to use was a 5/16ths, but that ended up being too big to fit the hole in the press handle, so I used a 1/4" bolt I happened to have, some bushing from the skate wheels I robbed the bearings out of, and managed to get it to work - I had to use a spacer so that I could get the attaching bolts to engage the threads. It ain't purty but it works.

Looks good. Might have to mess with mine now... thanks

Not much on hand but this was fun. I need to clean the bench a little.

I deburred primer pockets, trimmed, and inside chamfered, outside deburred, and primed 55 .308 cases. I'm going to load some 165 grain partitions this weekend.

I like it!

I spent some time decapping some 9mm tonight now that I have a better case feeder. It dramatically increases productivity with that press and it beats loading the single tube one by one.

Still waiting for my Dillon replacement large primer magazine. It shipped on 4/6 and has been stuck in USPS somewhere after Phoenix since 4/11. Private industry shipped me a new one pretty quickly, and our lovely USPS is showing what government does best.

RCBS just responded to my email about my broken brass separator that I sent almost a month ago. They are sending me a complete new unit.

That's a great warranty! The original was bought from a Cabelas catalog back around 1989 or so. I don't think it owed me anything.

Funny you should say that. I ordered springs from Wolff Spring Co. in PA, just outside of Philly. So far, they have been in transit making their way to Southern VA, up through to DC and now are in the DC distribution hub. Not bad for being in shipping for three weeks.
