More preparation on 84 year old 30.06 brass using Lyman tools.
2A On A Budget
I’m looking forward to the increased leverage during resizing when I get my new Lyman press. Great video Jerry!
One of the many advantages of the Lyman 8, it’s very sturdy, and the leverage makes reloading almost effortless! Thanks for watching Happy!
Good video Jerry. I love my Lyman 8 Turret press and the xpress brass station as well. I got one of the recoil pads too, but haven’t even had time to take it out of the box.
Let me know if yours fits. There’s a possibility that I got one that slipped past Q.A., but that seems to be my luck. I sent an email to Lyman customer service, along with a link to this video, but so far haven’t heard from them. I’d really like to get a few of these, but only if they fit tight. I’ve come up with a “redneck” fix, but I’ll wait to see what Lyman has to say. I sincerely love Lyman products, and believe in their quality, but in their defense, they import these from China, and can’t catch… Read more »
I just checked it on a couple of my rifles and it falls off or is very loose. I don’t know if it will stay on while shooting. I don’t know, it is very strange to be that loose.
What happened to your video?
I just watched the video again, and everything seems to be working. Maybe try to watch again? Thanks for trying to watch, and I hope you’re successful this time.
Just got a chance to watch it. Good video. Thanks. Did you make the link private after first showing it? Maybe that’s what happened. Either way thanks for the video.
Yesterday, after posting the video, we realized that we had missed inserting a piece, and had to re-edit the video. So for several hours yesterday the video was down. Thank you for your patience and for watching.
The flash hole deburring tool works well if you put it on the case prep center. I also use the Lee threaded case trimmer on mine with the Lee case length gages. Not sure if Lyman makes a threaded cutter stud that would thread into a case prep center station. Although pricey I changed to the RCBS crimp remover which does a better job for me than the included Lyman crimp remover bits. If you save bad brass to bring to the scrap yard don’t forget them shavings are brass too.
Thanks for the information about the flash hole deburring tool. I assumed the shaft was molded into the handle. But I only debur the flash holes once on a case, so I only use it on new, or unknown cases. I also have the RCBS crimp removal die set, and a lot of the military 30.06 brass I recieved will get swaged. Thanks for the comments!
That shop is turning ‘Orange’ … I hope Lyman notices and takes advantage of that. Isn’t that brass prep center a life saver! They need to go back to the drawing board on the slip on rifle butt cover, that or someone returned it and had been using it for a slipper…even if you rework the sleeve part the butt plate cover is too large, it’s going to be slipping around some…me thinks. Great video again Cuz!
With all of the old 30.06 brass some chicken wrangler gave me, I had my work cut out for me, hand prepping my brass! If I can do 30+ pieces in less than 5 minutes, I should be able to do 109/hour! And not cover my bench with brass shavings! You may be right about someone using the recoil pad as footwear, maybe they didn’t have a good grasp of the English language, saw “slip on”, equated that to mean “slipper”? Thanks for giving me a chuckle, Cuz.
Nice setup Jerry. Lyman has been a cornerstone company within the reloading industry for a long time. They have been good to us.
Yes sir. I would have more Lyman products, if I could afford them. This prep station is really a time saver! I’m doing a series on reviving old (1927-1963) 30.06 brass, and it’s been very time consuming, so any savings of time is a bonus! Going to be watching your latest video in a few minutes, love your work!
I have the Case Prep Xpress as well, and I love it. I finally bought it a couple years ago after I ordered 1000+ once fired .30-06 cases, and just the thought of doing it all by hand made my hands cramp up.
I’ve been trying to revive some old (1927-1963) 30.06 brass that Charles Irby gave me (see previous “Super GIFTEON” video), and it was really getting time consuming! Since Lyman didn’t see the risk of a ROI to send me one, my wife decided that we had enough Cabela’s reward points to go get one. What a time saver! I thought that since my bench is made up of Lyman, Lee (dies, casting), and some Hornady, I should do a “Lyman” video and send them the link. Besides, they probably want feedback about the Pachmayr Shock Shield, and perhaps a Lyman… Read more »
