Can a Lee Load Master do powder checking?
I'm just starting out so pardon me if I'm asking for too much. I've studied the options on the Lee Load Master Progressive. It appears to me that with the right die in position 1, position 2 is idle. Unfortunately Lee says that position 2 cannot do decaping nor can it feed powder. I see no way to have a powder check station unless I can feed powder in position 2.
Why isn't it possible to put a combined decap and resizing/belling die in position 1 and the powder die in position 2? That would leave room for the RCBS Lockout Die in position 3.
Is there a combined bullet seating/crimping die we could use in position 5 which would still work with the bullet feeder? That would allow the RCBS Lockout Die to go into position 4.
Here's what I'd like to be able to do:
1. Auto feed the casing
4. Shape/bell the casing
5. Powder charge
6. Powder check
7. Seat bullet from feeder
9. Resize the case
If this isn't possible on the Lee Load Master, is it possible on some other vendor's press? Looks like it is possible on the Hornady LNL AP and the Dillon 650.
Would it be possible on the Lee press if I did the final crimping during a separate pass on a single stage press? That would allow the powder check to be on position 4 and the bullet seating on position 5 (but would the bullet feeder work at that position?).
