    Hey guyz didn't want to hijack a thread.
    Been a while since I've posted, kinda been through some hard times in the last few months.

    Wow the red blue thing is getting down to inches of hand movement?

    Hate it that the LNL didn't work out for you Steve.
    (You guyz do know Steve has sent at least one of everything Midway sales back for exchange or refund, oh and three ACME 150 lb anvils in the last 6 months!)
    Just kidding Steve :supergrin:
    I've saw the case tipping thing solved simply by getting the Vee bock down closer to the rim of the case. Removing a little material from the Vee block with a file put the contact area of the Vee block closer to the rim of the case and stopped the tipping for someone that was having the same problem.
    I reload for two Glocks and haven't had that problem, mine are 40 cal though?
    Maybe you tried that I don't know ?
    When loading with the case feeder I really never completely stop the press handle, I place the bullet as the Ram is starting up and has already indexed so theres no bullet tipping. As the ram is finishing the up stroke I grab the next bullet and have it waiting until the ram go's down and starts up again. You can get a flow going where the ram hardly stops after some practice.

    I'll have to say I kinda do miss the Red and Blue debate,,

    Boxer believe it or not I'm holding my dog back in this one, you guyz are debating movement in inches, lbs and Oz's of pressure and calories burnt and I'm not ready for that yet.
    :supergrin:


    Anyway good to see the same crew still posting, well and Jack too I suppose?

    Hey Bob, nice to hear from you. It's just the normal dinner table banter within family.

    Bob,

    Good to have you back. Been wondering about you a lot.


    Nope didn't try that. I did use a felt pad under the V block. No difference.

    Yeah, thanks. I'm stumped. I guess it's not a big deal really. Hornady is cutting me a check Friday. So I got my money coming back and I got to use a LnL for a while. It's no big deal. It's definitely given people a lot to talk about.

    Who the hell is this BOB guy and why is he trying to start trouble? Everyone knows that the LNL is the best piece of machinery ever devised by man and we don't need some stranger coming in here trying to stir the pot.

    Well, I don't know who you are but since you barged in I guess you might as well stay... unless of course we're not good enough for you.

    Thanks guy
    It's all still a lot of fun !
    Heck I think I've spent more time debating red and blue then actually loading on the press.
    I'm satisfied with the LNL it's all I need.
    Of course my LNL has been chrome plated, blue printed and dyno tested.

    :supergrin:

    I've arrested pimps, seen pimp hats, pimp cars and pimp guns... first time I've ever seen a pimp press.

    Lord please take me before civilization sinks any lower.

    How is that bullet feeder working Bob? Specifically with lead? Did you have to open up the LNL die?
