Of course, the cost difference is non-trivial. At the moment (April 2013), Hornady is throwing in 500 "free" (for the cost of shipping -- fifteen bucks) XTP bullets with the L-n-L AP. Sold.
Now back to the original review...
My initial impression after loading several hundred rounds -- all pistol -- is pretty good, bearing in mind that I've only used a single-stage press before. With the Lee Pro Auto-Disk this press is faster than the single-stage, with a lot less wasted motion, and I find it less tedious to use. I'm sold. The single stage press has been relegated to bullet-puller duty.
The only real annoyance is the fact that if you go too fast, the momentum carries the turret past the detent, it stops out of register, and you can crumple a case mouth or dent a bullet nose against the edge of the mouth of a die, if you don't notice. If you do notice, you still have to break your rhythm to turn the turret back half a notch. I've gotten a feel for the rhythm of the fastest speed it can tolerate, but I wish I could go faster. I've seen complaints about the Lee turret press's indexing, and I wonder if this may not be the same problem they had. Well, handloading generally rewards patience, methodical precision, and consistency. That's the nature of it.Read more ›
