I load 5.56 and 7.62 in batches of 1,000
I don't know if all of my stages are necessary, but they work for me and give me the "warm fuzzies."
First, I wash or tumble the cases. I install the resizing die ONLY in the Dillon. I spray lube with Dillon lube then resize/deprime,
I tumble in corncob to remove the lube, and run each case through the case gauge. Those that need trimming are trimmed.
Brass is now prepared. I install the tool head with all of the dies. In the resizing stage, I install an RCBS "universal" decapping die to knock out any corncob that got stuck in the flash hole during tumbling, and load normal,. high speed.
I weigh a powder charge every 100 rounds to verify the powder measure setting.
I have ten primer pick up tubes, in each size, so I only need to load primers in tubes every 1,000 rounds.
Sounds complex, but once you get into the swing of it, it's easy to load 1000 7.62X51, .30-06 or 5.56X45 in two evenings without pushing yourself.
Be careful, though. You may find yourself taking out a second mortgage to buy conponents!
