Okay, I'll go along with it... that could take three days.

I also had the old steel dies, so one night after work I went to the cave, lubed and primed them and wiped them off. The next night I ran them through the expander and set up the old powder thrower that mounts to the bench. The third night I charged each one at a time and put a tip on and seated and taper crimped them. Not three full days but a little time at night after working all day. Now when I sit down at my Dillons and load I do a box of 50 shells in about 10 minutes if I'm taking my time. Also use carbide dies on everything, no more lube for me.
