Thanks for the run down. I got the ABC and lyman book but your version answers some questions that were not addressed in the book. I think you meant to say "long" in stage 3, the next sentance.
"It will be short because you backed off the screw a lot. "
The round will be "long" at first till you screw it in, that's how I understood it anyway.
I'm still leaning towards the turret press because I have all the time in the world, and I want to do rifle rounds and would like one press that does it all.
Actually I will be changing shifts soon and will be losing my shift diff which is a substantial amount of mad money. I might not be getting any press at all.
