I finally got that turret press bolted to the bench and I'm trying to get it adjusted and calibrated. I spent an hour today setting up the dies for .45 ACP, then I ran off twenty rounds of ammo. The learning curve has me a bit perplexed, but I've solved all the problems so far. For the past two decades, I've been making ammo by batch processing it. Deprime all the brass, re-prime all the brass. Flare all the brass, add powder, seat all the bullets, crimp all the bullets.
This turret press is linear, so the learning curve means that I've got to think about what I'm doing every step of the way. I can see that it's going to make good ammo, and for cranking out pistol ammo, it should be the cat's meow. I"m not fast enough yet that I have a good idea on how long it will take to make 100 rounds of ammunition, but I can see that it's going to be an improvement.
I need to find some lead and cast a bunch of bullets.
