How do you remove those from the press without loosing your adjustment,
Carefully (LOL). Give me a break, you don't check your dies and adjustments each time you put them into your single stage press??? I also suppose that your cases do not stretch??? Or that you use the same exact bullet each time you load??? Or that you do not use a Classic Turret or Progressive press with a removable die holder???? Or one of those new quick set die holders???

Me I don't mind checking my set up before I make a 100 or 200 mistakes.

Take my seating die for 22/250 with hornady ring for example.

It is set for vmax at 2.473". Snug it down, seat a bullet, check oal, good to go.

I remove and install this die constantly. With lee rings, well you said it best Jim, constant readjusting.

I just grab the ring and turn to the left.
