I've vented my set-up frustrations on here before, but the finishing touches went quickly for me. In a couple hours last night: 1) Mounted the press to my bench 2) Set the powder throw 3) Loaded 100 small primers 4) Set the Stations 3 and 4 5) Made my first ever small test batch of 9mm I'd been holding off on #1 so I could bring the press to work and have an experienced reloader check my work. I got the strong mount (had to for my bench) so it was not a big deal to do most of the set-up without bolting down. For #4, I did the trick where you put a finished round in the station, raise the shell plate, then lower the die to fit. OAL matched the "go by" round to within 0.01" and the crimp is cool too.
