one thing the "progressive die guys" don't talk about is case prep... I often spend way more time on case prep, than actual loading... normally those 100-150 cases I loaded on Thursday night, may have required Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday nights decapping, tumbling, checking case length, & timming as needed... in the past, that also included running through the RCBS case prep center, camfering, brushing out the primer pockets, & picking that gosh darned corn cob media out of the primer pockets & flash hole, & final inspecting the cases...

I also prefer to hand prime as part of my case prep, I find I make a lot less mistakes, not having to run the press handle backwards to seat the primer...

now with the stainless pins & universal decapping die, I expect to cut the prep time in half, I'll still likely hand prime as part of my prep, which make the turret even more attractive
In life you either make dust or eat dust...
