LoadMaster Load-Master caliber or cartridge switch

  Print

To convert the Load-Master from a large caliber to small caliber or a small to large, you need the following:

1) New Shell Plate
Appropriate shell plate = http://leeprecision.com/reloading-presses/progressive-presses/progressive-press-accessories/load-master-shell-plate/

2) Primer Feeder 

If you are loading a larger or smaller primer, a new primer feeder needs to be purchased.

Large (90077) = http://leeprecision.com/load-master-lg-primer-feed.html

Small (90075) = http://leeprecision.com/load-master-sm-primer-feed.html

3) Dies

Appropriate dies = http://leeprecision.com/reloading-dies/

4) 5 Hole Turret (90079) = http://leeprecision.com/5-hole-turret.html

5) Powder Measure

6) Bullet Feed Kit
If you are loading a larger or small diameter cartridge, a new Bullet Feeder may also need to be purchased = http://leeprecision.com/reloading-presses/progressive-presses/progressive-press-accessories/bullet-feed-kit/

NOTES:

If the desire is to load 45 ACP or 40 S&W, remember to get the bent "Z" bar (TR2452B) which goes from your case slider to the "Z" bar attachment on the top of the front column. This ensures that this bar does not interfere with the case feed mechanism. If your loader initially came set up for either of these calibers, it is not necessary to purchase a "non-Z bar" for other calibers. http://leeprecision.com/Z-BAR-BENT.html

Some 45 ACP brass now have small primer pockets. Do not attempt to load these cases with large primer feed, else explosion and damage to tool is likely to occur.


If the desire is to load the 40 S&W, it is necessary to have the large case feeders but the small case slider. This is very uncommon but is necessary with this caliber. http://leeprecision.com/case-slide-sm.html

The 50 AE can be loaded however, the case feeder cannot be used as event the large size is too small. It is also necessary to lube the cases as the dies are steel.
