    Well if anyone else uses a turret press, I have learned something. After 4 years of loading on it and fighting bullet run out I stumbled across the problem, the top of the press has to rotate so in doing so it has about 4 thousands give in it. This means when you seat a bullet it cants the top around 4 thousands well voilà here's the prob So bullet seated crooked. I stuck a feeler gauge in back of press and no Moore run out did 20 rounds 1 thousands or less yea! Hope this may help anyone else that has run onto this prob.

    That's a good tip birdie.

    I've been thinking about turning down the shoulder on the center bolt in my turret. That way I can lock it down solid to the frame when I want. Instant "O" press! :D

    Now that is an idea! Would be much Moore solid than the factory system.
