    I started reloading on a Lee C press shortly after I got started I picked up a lightly used Rock Chucker. Somewhere down the line I gave the Lee press to someone. . My wife got tired of my always researching and ordered me the turret press I have been looking at. I have a Lyman brass craft 8 station press coming. Making 20 rounds of hunting ammo on a single stage press isn't bad loading 100 rounds of 10mm gets old. My plan is to setup the Lyman for both 10mm and 380 acp and use the Rock Chucker for rifle and special pistol rounds

    Nice. I have looked at a set up like that for pistol ammo but I like the quiet time while reloading.

    I need to set up my reloading stuff. It is still piled in a heap from the move.

    Show us the new toy when it arrives!

    I'd say she's a keeper. Probably the turret press is a keeper too.

    :)

    I am hoping to use primer feed on the press for small primers for 380 . I will see if I have another shell holder for the 10mm and prime them on the single stage press

    I like my Lyman gear. I have several of the Tru-Line Jr. presses I got for my boys for reloading handgun ammo. 4 stations, odd dies, but once you have them, you are set. I have considered boring out one hole to use a standard carbide sizing die. I got all mine, and the dies off ebay.

    Does that take the same dies as the Lyman 310 hand presses? Blue
    I rearranged my bench last night moved my Rock Chucker and stand for my Lyman #55 measure put some dies in a little closet . My Lyman press and lee powder dropper are due in today . Hopefully my bullets will get here in time to get some test loads for the weekend
