So Much For Auto Drives On Reloading Presses

Ask him how many rounds per hour he reloads now. If you do this be sure to stop long enough to clear the flesh and bone out of the case. Otherwise you risk powder contamination!

Same problem as on a Heager, or PEM insert machine. Never been that careless myself (close calls don't count ;D ) But I've seen others do it.
They say it hurts.
I believe them ;D

Watched a temp kid lose some of his thumb on a PEM machine!  It hurt, I witnessed his pain!

What was he loading?  Case looks very small or he has monster sized hands.

It looks like a small, rimmed, slightly tapered or bottlenecked case. .32-20 perhaps? Or at least something along those lines. It came off the Cast Boolit Forum. So I'm guessing whoever it is, they most likely intended to load cast bullets in it. That's why I guessed .32-20.

This looks really painful and I'm thinking the case went through a bone and he's in for allot of swelling.  I've worked with robotics and machinery all of my life and one must respect that a machine will do its thing weather your in the way or not. Guards are put on machines because operators are not always paying attention. If you design a power drive for anything always put in safe guards and never trust the safe guards when operating the machine.

Naaaahhh....I like my Lee turret press. I put the casing in the mount, feel each stage, set the bullet on top of the casing, feel the set, feel the crimp... I KNOW my ammo with the simple system, and it hasn't bitten me yet.
I got the blues as my companion.
