Kinda related to my other thread but here it goes: Im trying to cut out a step of my reloading process so that it all "fits" in my new 4 hole turret press. .38 special. What I used to do: Decap/size/prime in one step, then I use a .358 RCBS cowboy expander for .38S&W (heard its best for HBWCs in .38spl because it allows more room and the softbullet wont swage down). Then, I seat with a lee seater/crimp (crimp not used), then roll crimp with another die. The problem is that im "automating" the powder and I need the lee powder through expander die to charge (set up to not expand, just charge) in addition to everything I listed above. This puts me at 5 dies... I've decided that seating/crimping in the same step is detrimental to my loads so I must explore another path. Only thing I can do now is to get rid of my cowboy expander plug and use the lee. So, in short, my question is: Was it a waste of effort all this time using the RCBS cowboy expander plug? Should I just use the lee? Any experience? Thanks! Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
