I believe it does, there's an arm on the press that hinges into the casing and pushes it in.

What's the difference between the Lee Classic Kit and the Lee 50th Anniversary kit? Besides the Classic kit is a 3 turret press and the Anniversary is a single stage press.

i completely agree. reloading requires your full and undivided attention.

i don't reload when i am drinking alcohol, on medications that can make me drowsy, when i'm tired or anytime i can't pay full attention to what needs to be done.

not too long ago we had a member kaboom his habd with a hand held primer tool. ive never been fond of them since there is nothing preventing about a hundred little explosions ripping your hand up other than luck.

i use one of these rcbs priming tools for single stage stuff

Ya, respect the primers... they'll get ya if you're not careful. propellant to, a guy I worked with had a few flakes if powder in a screw hole on a Dillin, put a screw in the hole, tightened it and then had a BOOM. Good house keeping and safety glasses is a must

i bought mine years ago about 60$ they run 89 on midway might be able to find em cheaper in local shops or used.

its really fast and safe since if you set off a primer it wont chain the rest like a hand primer can
