Tips & Tools Continued

This is what you get when setting the case retainer using the Lee instructions and a 19s shellplate holding a 9mm case.
This is what you get when setting
the case retainer using my method.
My main point with all this is that as much as Lee would like to have you believe that you can just slap your large or small primer system into your press, fill it with primers and start turning out rounds, it usually isn't going to happen. Now I realize that some of you out there claim to have no problems with your primer systems and if that in fact is true good for you. One quick browse of the internet pretty much proves that you are definitely in the minority. The rest of us for some reason known only to a higher authority struggle with it. My comments and attending pictures are simply my efforts and fixes for what I have had to deal with on my press. Bottom line, go ahead and give these ideas a try. Take your time, set it up carefully and see what happens.
