Okay, I should not have spoken for you then. But yes, my experience was with the Lee Loader, and I had the same experience that you did, detonated a primer while whacking it into place. No harm done, but definitely got my attention. I then bought a small thumb-operated priming tool and continued to use the unit with the exception of the re-priming operation, and that was a lot better. But it was still very painstakingly slow. The sizing of the brass involved a lot of hammering.

I actually like the 28 Ga shotgun. But ammo is crazy expensive if you can find it and not a very good selection. Not sure about a revolver though.

For those times when only a Bigger Hammer will do.

I had a Duckfoot once.. about .60 cal I think. I'd load that thing up with like 3" of shot and 3" of black. It was pretty ghey.

I don't see it being more then a novelty pistol. Unless it's 12 or 20 gauge, the ammo is going to be expensive and limited. Now if they made it 45 LC, I'd be all over it.

Love the smooth cylinder with the heavy barrel though.

That's smooth-bore though, no reenforced barrel and no smooth cylinder. Then there's the breaking issue they seem to have.

Anyone waiting for the LC9 to start showing up in stores?

My LCP is an excellent carry gun but the LC9 looks like it might fill the gap in concealable/reliable/cheap carry pistols in 9mm. Any thoughts?

I've had several for various rifle rounds. Extremely accurate as it neck sizes only.

Dillon 450 for pistol, having outgrown the Lyman SparT. I gave it to my brother after my rich uncle started supplying me again.

That's can't be right. The judge has to have a rifled barrel otherwise itd be an illegal short barreled shotgun.

My bad, it's rifled. Still wouldn't waste my money on one though.
