    One more desert rat

    Hi All,

    I've been lurking around here for a while and probably should have stopped in and spilled my guts a while back.

    Raised in Phoenix but got tired of the heat and retired in northern Arizona 40 miles from the nearest thing that can be called a city. I'm lovin it.

    A friend got me involved in IPSC shooting a while back and I expanded my toy's from a typical hunting array to include an XD40 and M&P9. Been busy every since.

    I even sprung for a Lee Pro 1000 that the IPSC gang poo-poo's and have started rolling my own. It has produced around 2000 very effective rounds so far. I'm not trying anything off the charts so it has all worked to date.

    2400, I quit the smokes last year so don't have any cigars but do have plenty of Peppermint Candies if you would like one.

    I found this site by searching for gun stuff so can't really credit anyone but am certainly glad I found it.

    I'll be talkin to you all from time to time.

    Enjoy

    Sam

    Many of us find reloading to be an enjoyable supplement to the shooting experience.

    So that Lee Pro 1000 is working really well for you? I've been considering upgrading my press for some time. From the site it seems that it only does pistol and short rifle rounds. That would be the main reason I'd pay the extra $168 MSRP for the Dillon RL550B that can squeeze together my 8mm Mauser rounds too.

    Hi Revolver,

    The Lee has been working well for 9MM and .40S&W but probably wouldn't work for long cartridges.

    If you are doing a fair amount of pistol loading you might still be interested in Lee. Midway and Nachez price it around $130 which is why my Scotch blood picked it. I read a lot of reviews before buying and deduced the whiners were no good with mechanical things. Keep it clean and it works well. the big problems occur when you allow powder or other debri to interfere with the primer insertion section. Run low on primers or spill powder and you will require a cleanup session.

    My friend has a 550 but can't load pistol rounds as fast as I because he doesn't have a case feeder.

    The simple feed stack of the Lee works well and saves a bunch of time and effort.

    Enjoy
