is it a Lee loader? just curious.
In general you save very little money loading shotshells,but it is still an enjoyable hobby.
Hornady has a new primer setup for the press to make the primer station more 'universal' and not have to be adjusted for diff. brands of shells.All hulls are NOT created eqaual.Pick one brand of hull and stick with it to make life simpler.I like STS hulls.
Mount the press inside a cake pan.You already know why.
