Christmas came early at the Rhino house! I found a good deal at Wideners Supply on a LCT and told my wife that it would be a great early present for me. She went for it!
I also got the auto prime, extra turrets, and the Auto disk powder measure.
I went for the LCT based on reviews , price and it seemed to be the right 'speed' for the amount of shooting that I do.
- well made, seems to be a machine that will last a lifetime.
- first impression out of the box. cheaply made. ( i started to worry at this point)
had serious reservations of the accuracy of the powder drops.
Dang that was easy, took me longer to find the bolts then to set it up. The dies are set up just like I ws used to. I just had to make sure they were in the right order.
Also very easy to set up. As long as it's lined up right with the primer cup it works great.
I took my time setting this up because I checked ,double checked , triple checked the conversion chart that Lee sent with it and the accuracy of the powder throws.
silky smooth operation, long handle throw (compared to what i had) After 100 rounds I had to raise my bench to make it easier on my back. I really, really like it. Alot.
Still think it's cheaply made but
it works perfectly. Pretty surprised and impressed.
Despite my reservations it works great. I set it up to throw 5.5 grains of Unique and it was on the money almost every time. I caught a few that were 5.4 but no overages. That is very acceptable for me and for pistol/range ammo.
For the average, regular shooter who doesn't need to churn out competition level amounts of ammo every month and if you are on a budget. ( I fit both criteria) IMO, you just can't beat this setup for the price.
Not including the dies ( already had them) I have less then 200.00 in everything.
