Reloading .223 ammunition using the Lee LoadMaster press in the faster fully progressive operation, where each operation takes place in parallel, and each pull of the handle results in a new round of ammunition being produced. The following actions take place at the same time.
Station 1 - Load the brass to be full length resized.
Station 2 - The primer is inserted.
Station 3 - The powder is measured and dropped into the case.
Station 4 - A bullet is placed in the case neck and the bullet is seated to the proper overall length.
Station 5 - The neck is securely crimped with the Lee Factory Crimp die.
The cycle time is about 10 seconds per round, taking my time and being thorough.
Before I start reloading rifle brass, I have already tumble cleaned the brass, applied a tiny amount of Imperial Sizing Wax to the cases one at a time on their way into a Lee Classic Cast single stage press to remove the old primer and resize the brass, then used a Lee Zip Trim to trim the case to the proper length, and chamfer the inside and outside of the neck. (Search for my Zip Trim video.) Then the cases are tumble cleaned again to remove the case sizing lube.
