My Inline Fabrication Ultramount riser and top plates came in. Bought a 4" quick change riser and set it up on my Lee bench with a dedicated top plate for the Lee Classic Cast Turret press. Improved that bench considerably.

Took the quick change base plate, along with the quick change top plates for the RCBS Jr and Lyman All American 8 to the second house and converted the 9 3/4" riser there with the quick change base plate. Now I can easily switch between the RCBS and Lyman press.

Loaded up some 7.62x54R on the All American 8. Initial impressions? I like the press! I have wanted a Redding T7 for a while, just did not see paying the Redding price. The RCBS turret was my second choice, but I found it to be lacking. The Lyman All American 8 interested me from its release, but I procrastinated and did not get it for the $170 or so that they were selling for. I paid about $40 more. Today at my foraging place the Lyman is selling for $314, and the Redding is $370. So I am not too bummed.

I was worried that the priming system on the All American 8 would suck, mostly because the reviews on the press said the priming system .... sucked. But it actually worked fine. Pretty sure that Lyman modified it, as mine came with a plastic weighted rod that slides down the primer tube to add just a bit of weight. Anyways, it worked perfectly on the 50 rounds I loaded up. Another complaint is that the spent primers often miss the collection cup and end up on the floor. Again, not a problem for me with the few rounds I loaded. (I am sort of used to spent primers on the floor, as my RCBS Jr press probably drops 2 or 3 out of 10. Watch some of the videos on the All American 8 and you will notice that the dropped primers seem to correlate with short-stroking the press). Again, initial impressions are I like the press, like it a lot, and wish I would have bought it sooner.

Actually went to their site, it was free, but the freaking “nexus” thing came up again so I couldn’t pay shipping. In the end, I ordered the parts plus another plate and spent essentially the same price as at Lee. Coming from FS Reloading in southern Utah, shipped today.
I use FS Reloading a lot and have had good experiences.

Peace favor your sword,

I set up my rcbs powder charger but i need a 45 acp shell holder for my press , and i need a 45acp shellholder for my hornady hand primer.
You will need a Hornady branded shell holder on the hand primer. The holes are larger than other brands.

Got tired of depriming brass so I decided to load up some of my brass that I had primed from an earlier session. 380, 9mm and 5.56.

After setting up the new Loadmaster, I got some 9mm done. Didn’t even count how many.
