Well, as he have discussed before, reloading the .50 is definitely for those addicted to the .50. After getting set up, I have to say that you are truely a junkie if you drop the money to reload this brute. I bought a RCBS Ammo Master press kit. I have always been impressed with RCBS and this press is no different. You notice the real heft when you yank it out of the box and hoist it up onto your bench. I had to chisel out some wood for the articulated ram to fit and then bolted it down tightly. Next, I took the 16 oz. beer can dies out and put them on the press, rather impressive what it takes. Then came the ordering of the componenets. When it arrives, make sure the neighbor kid is home and pay him a small fortune to carry it all down to your den of iniquity. For those of you that live in stick built homes or flimsy apartments, you may not want to try this. I was astounded by the weight of 1000 rounds of components. I also found that my electronic scales cant even weigh the bullets, so I have to get a new scale, powder comes close to locking it up. Decapping and sizing is as normal, but now you use half a bottle of lube to do a couple rounds. Primers don't just tinkle into the cup, they make an audible clank. Trim operations is by a trim die and a metal file, I may have to invest in a powered rotary trimmer. Primer pocket cleaning is easier, you can use a small brush on a drill. Swaging the primer pocket is a absolute must. I used a cutting tool and cut the crimp out, but after two casings, I got online and bought a press swage. CCI primers suck, they are not concentric, so seating the primer can be a task. The first case set with a little coercion, the second one, I hadn't removed enough crimp. You could feel the thunk as the primer set, but on the second one, I kept rotating the case but it wasn't having any part of it. I should have removed it then and took a little more crimp out, but I thought I would muscle it a little more. Finally, I felt the thunk but saw a chunk of brass fall out the press and it was the entire wall of the primer. I pulled the round out and there was a primer in there, but about 1/8" to far in, so I had to re-size again to get the primer out. Lesson learned there. I shaved some more off the crimp and this time, the second primer went in smooth, need that swaging die. The Redding powder drop I have won't drop 235 gr. of powder, so I have to hand dip the powder and then trickle the last bit. My powder funnel won't fit over a .50 case, so a new powder funnel is on the list of buy items. I can make the powder funnel work as it's outside diameter is exactly 1/2", so I have to hold it in place and drop the powder in. The seating beer can was set and when I went to put the brass and bullet in to load, it wouldn't fit so I had to put the brass in and then run the bullet tip into the die and then set the bullet in and run it in and seated the round. Once seated, it would come out fine. Here is the final product, my first round. I did find that a 12 guage shell holder fits the casings well and makes a great .50 holder. Here it is resting on top the muzzle brake of the rifle that will digest it soon!
