    Since there are a few Lee turret users here, have any of you used the reverse rotation rod/case ejector from Inline Precision.?The purpose is to allow your right hand to remain on the handle while the left hand inserts empty cases and bullets, and also to eject the finished cases of course. Supposedly speeds things up.

    I have an old (25 years) Dillon 650 that is in mothballs for need of a couple of parts. Right now, I am using a Lee Turret press for 9mm and .45 acp. A progressive would be great, but for now, it works.

    Mix here,

    Dillon 550: Handgun, bulk .223, 7.62
    Redding Ultra-Mag: Majority of my rifle
    RCBS Rockchucker: Depriming
    Ponsness-Warren 375: 20GA, 16GA, 12GA, 10GA hunting loads
    Ponsness-Warren 900 Eliet: 12GA target loads



    Hoping to add a Dillon 650 next year for strictly 9mm.

    But I'm using blue. Dillon 550 for everything. If I'm trying to make an accurate rifle round I use it like a single stage.
    One more for Dillon 550, for almost 25 years. And for my match loads for the big rifles is the C&H 444. It's was build like a tank. I have used it from the 80's and still going.

    One red and one blue. The red one (LNL) I bought new and find that it has a personality that is persnickety. It's temperamental. The blue one (550) I inherited and find that it just works. Period. You set it and it does what you said to do, every time. You can ignore it for the longest time, go back to it and it still does the same thing. The red one......don't even go eat a cheese sandwich cause it's gonna be cranky for the first 20 loads when you get back to it.

    I only load pistol ammo right now and use a Lee Loadmaster progressive press but I use it in stages not full progressive. Deprime and resize on the loadmaster then use the newish Lee Auto Bench Primer to prime the cases as I never liked the loadmasters priming system then back to the LM to finish the round. Its not as fast as going full progressive but its fast enough for me.

    RCBS Rock Chucker for hunting loads. Dillon 550 for pistol, and maybe AR in the future.

    I use a RCBS Rock Chucker and RCBS dies. I tried my friends Hornady dies and wasn't a fan.

    I had a Lee Progressive 1000 about 30 years ago, reloaded thousands of .38spl and .357 mag rounds, worked like a dream.
    Now I have a Dillon xl650 and love it, load 9mm, .40, and 45acp with it, works every time you pull the handle and measures powder accurately every time, I check powder weight after about every 25 rounds.

    If you ever want to shoot long range, then take a hard look at Forster Bench Rest Rifle Reloading Dies. I been working them from the 70's.

    I will have to learn to shoot long range one of these days. In the last 2 years the longest shot I have had to take on a deer or an elk is 50-60 yards.
