I use a 4 hole Turret press also Richard.   Mostly I load small batches as I need them and have time so I haven't done anything this winter yet.    The quick change over with the turrets allows you to be ready to load any caliber you need at a moments notice.

Hi, I thought that the reloading of a few hundred 30 Carbine would take only an hour or so. It took half a day because of the H110 powder used. That spherical powder is like very fine sand which would jam the sliding plate of my Lee Auto-Disk powder measure. A few times I had to disassemble the loaded cartridge to make sure there was powder in the cartridge.

Sometimes the most apparently simple tasks take the most time.

Regards,
Richard
