No more shadows

A cheaper way (than the Hornady LED light strip) too eliminate the shadows.

Flexible Strip Waterproof SMD Car Auto LED White Light Lamp Lighting 12VDC from eBay > $1.30. Junk Box 12 VDC Wall Wart. $???. I had several..

Mounted the strip, facing toward the shell plate, so they would not be shining in my eyes. I can now peek inside the case and take note of a proper powder charge.

Very clever. Kudos to you!

And that light is so blue it turned your Hornady into a Dillon.

Good idea. I have a little single LED lamp on mind for powder checking, but your setup looks like it really lets you see it all.

Similar. This and a smaller one from HF for $7. You can flex it where you want it.
Sorry for the lousy photo.

No more shadows, just that annoying white spot that you see after you turn the light out!. Maybe that only happens to me.
