..can put out a lot of ammo with a 550B.
Just got my 550B up and running and one of my kids wanted to try it. He put in the brass, worked the handle, I indexed and set the bullet.

Won't take long, now did it.

Please consider what will happen if the two of you get out of sync...

Some years ago a "name" pistol shooter & his wife were operating a press together, a mistake was made- the decapping pin was driven through the shooters' thumb.

Too easy to double charge or otherwise screw up with two people working a one-person machine.

Have to be real careful doing this but you are starting your kid on the right road plus bonding.I think its worth the extra effert in watching your round quality for the Father,Child bonding.

Thanks for the concern.
Here is the deal. Kid sets brass,works handle. Dad(me)watches powder charge,set bullet and index. The given is, I tell him when to pull the handle.
