Yes, I have one and it works great AFTER you tweak it which is no small feat. It took me hours to get it adjusted. I hooked it up to my Dillon case feeder and it works like a champ.


Could you tell us more about the hookup to the Dillon casefeeder, perhaps post some pictures?

Wondering with the new roller handle lee is releasing is the Dillion rapid trimmer will fit?

people are also making the roller handles themselves looks easy enough

Just a guess but I don't think that new handle will clear the vacuum adapter. It would be nice if it would but does Lee even remotely care about Dillon compatibility?

You'll probably have to make something or hope Inline Fab comes out with something that will work.

Anyone have reviews on the swaging? 
 

I set it up and swaged a few. Honestly can’t get a feel for the swaging. Followed the manual on where to place the rod. Says there should be 25lbs of force, how do I calculate that?? 
 

I guess I can prime a few and see.

I was lost when setting up the swaging on my Mk7 until I bought the go no-go gauge from Ballistics Tools.  https://ballistictools.com/store/. Then it all came together.  Make sure the primer pocket is reasonably clean when using the gauge for the best results.  Also, use the gauge to check if the primer has already been swaged before swaging and making adjustments.  Seems like common sense, but I learned both lessons the hard way.

I use the APP for everything except swaging. Decap and size, went to hand primer, use it for seating and crimping 223s. Nice inexpensive way to load 223/556. Use inexpensive Lee powder drop. JD
