Do you have any other Lee pistol die sets? If so, you can pull the decapping rod out of one of them and put it in your .40S&W sizing die and get back to reloading.

Lee will probably send you a new...

I didn't mean to imply I had a problem with laquered cases, just that I haven't used 'em.

Take a good, hard look at the Lee Classic Turret for your first press. Without the auto-indexing rod it is an excellent single stage turret. Extra turrets are cheap so you basically never have to set...

Was the box damaged, like it had been dropped or something dropped on it?

Good advice above.

I wouldn't recommend that varmint bullet for hog hunting. Surely you can find something with better...

I shoot brass, aluminum, and steel cased ammo without worry in all my guns.

But the steel I shoot is not laquer coated, it's the Wolf Polyformance stuff. Looks the same as Hornady uses for their...

Oil and water work marginally at best in deactivating primers. After they dry out they could be just as active as before.

Or just move the press an inch or two and screw your lags into fresh wood.

Putting a 2x4 leg from the frame to the floor right under the press will help greatly too. It doesn't even have to be...

For .45 Colt the Lee FCD doesn't crimp differently than any other pistol roll crimp die.

You can use any 45 caliber pistol bullet. As mentioned above, the rifle bullets will be too large.

If the bullet doesn't have a cannelure I wouldn't try pushing it too hard or the others in the...

Why'd you overhang your bench so far? You will be much better off without the 4x4 and moving the press closer to the workbench edge.

What? My .45 Colt revolvers couldn't care less how long the bullet is seated as long as they don't stick out the end of the cylinder.

All .45acp bullets will work in .45 Colt revolvers (but...

I think this is probably the case. Look closely at the shoulder of the cases that aren't chambering and see if they haven't swelled out a bit.

Stop crimping and/or buy a case gauge and check every...

.45 Colt bullets normally have a cannelure to roll the crimp into. The slick sided .45acp bullets can jump crimp and tie up a revolver if the loads are heavy enough.

That said, you can use .45acp...

If they're less than max I wouldn't worry about the .45acp or the .45-70 brass. In fact, I wouldn't have bothered to even measure the pistol brass to begin with.

I don't measure much .45Colt, .44mag, or .357mag. I only check those when I'm going near max with H-110 and a uniform roll crimp is more...

The bullet should be held securely long before any crimp is applied.

Crimping is optional, neck tension is mandatory.

I've got nothing against a properly applied crimp, but often the cannelure...
