I was excited. I get excited about new things. On the economics - I just updated my excel nerdsheet - I'll pay for the lee loader after 500 rounds, assuming I continue to pay the exorbanate amount I paid for the first 100 bullets. ($23.49 for 100 speer TMJ round nosers. :eek1 ) On reloading - what's the best way to measure OAL of a round nose cartridge? With a dial caliper, it's hard to ensure that you are on the end of the nose. I'm going to try a micrometer tonight and see if that's easier.
