Yes, most of the dies and presses are interchangeable. What lee press did you go with? I have a classic progressive press. If I was to get a single stage press it would be the Lee Breech lock press, changing dies continually would get to e a pain in the neck

I love these discussions about "what should I buy"?

I started out with RCBS because of recommendations of friends and from using thiers before I plunged into handloading in 1983. What I like about RCBS is that any product you have from them is warranted for life and anythime you call them on reloading issues you get an honest to goodness expert. The other thing I like about RCBS is that most sporting goods store carry thier products. I use the Lee primer tool and the case trimmer that you put it a ordinary drill and the deburring-ers. Here again, it all depends on your pocket book. I've always found that a few more bucks spent initially will pay off in the long run. However, as I have posted before....NEVER..EVER count the money you spend on a hobby.....LOL

they all make great presses and dies. I just like the breech lock idea, set the dies once and forget it, no need to readjust the dies everytime. Hornady has something similar, I believe it is a lock and load press. I went with the progressive because I also load pistol rounds.

    • I'm getting pretty far ahead of myself, but I'm beginning to wonder if another trailer ramp spring would be the way to go for raising the back bunk.  I've never used one before, but I'm sure you can set the tension so it's well below the maximum and it wouldn't take so much effort to pull it down.  Just put up some guide rails and spring latches to latch it in the down position.  Any thoughts?

    • Well that sure "Trumps" anything else going around and around on in this site today!
    • Yeah you're right, my bad. Yes, the line is awful. 
    • It was a false start on the OL and another one could have been called on the 2nd attempt.  The OL is just BAD, probably the worst I've ever seen for a vikings team.  It seems like few teams put a high priority on the OL.  A good OL can make an average qb, wr, and rb look awfully good when it gives them time and opens holes.  A bad OL can also make a great qb, wr, rb look awfully bad.
    • OLE77, They did replace the valve cover when they did the STP treatment at 92,000 miles; it made no lasting difference.    delcecchi, I have the 5.3 engine.  I'm guessing I need new rings, that seems to be what everyone tells me.   Down2Earth, When I initially brought it in, Village told me they had never heard of the problem.  When I returned (I had then googled it and heard about the AFM and many, many people who have gone through this), they changed their tune and pointed the finger at GM as not letting them properly fix it.  What a joke.   I've attached a photo of the plugs I changed out last week.  This is now a monthly ritual for me.  Great, really looking forward to changing these out in my driveway this Jan.  Grrrrrr.
    • I bought 2 fans off Amazon for $18 each and there 110v. There 5"x 5" and about 4" deep. I was thinking about mounting them under the heater. Or would it be better to but them in a woodbox and mount on to?. They say there good for 69,000 hr of run time.
    • To bad we had an holding penalty that made us attempt it from the 7.
