2 new machines due in today

The Hornady Lock-N-Load Ammo Plant configured for 9mm, and going a totally different direction for more precision ammo. A RCBS Summit press.

After reading/watching several reviews, I cancelled the Hornady Iron press in favor of the RCBS Summit, mainly due to much tighter concentricity tolerances. Not to say that the Hornady Iron press is bad, it’s just the RCBS is even better. Going to set the RCBS Summit up to load for 3 rifles only. A .223 Rem, a 6.5 Creedmoor, and a .308 Win, all 3 that are of the AR platform. Yes, I prefer semi-autos over bolt actions. All other loads will be produced on either my Dillon XL650, Dillon Square Deal B, or the Hornady Lock-N-Load AP. All 3 of those machines produce ammo that is more than sufficient for our 3 Gun matches, and general shooting.

Review : Lyman Case Trim Xpress Electric Trimmer

I used most of them. From the Lee to the Little Crow Gunworks offering. This new design from Lyman however puts those to shame. Especially for the cost of the unit. It’s quick, easy to use, easy to adjust, and very accurate. Produces a very clean cut. Comes with multiple bushings for many popular calibers in the box. Others not supplied are available at a low cost.

How good are electronic scales? Let’s find out…

The ‘Dillon Blue” (lol) RCBS scales measured this projectile at 122.5 grains. Advertised weight of this 9mm projectile in 122 grains. Seems the scales are working properly.

The Dillon Precision scales measured the projectile at 122.5 grains. Seems the beam scales agree. The projectile is mostly likely 122.5 grains

Will the electronic scales agree with the 2 beam scales?

They sure do. I’ve had these for several years, and they have always performed very well. I use these exclusively when loading more precision loads. The days of short dumping a charge in the pan, then using a hand trickler to get it exact are a thing of the past.
