Lyman 55 Powder Measure on a Lee Turret Press....???
I purchased a Lyman 55 powder measure to go on my buddy's Lee 4-position turret press with a powder-through die. Unfortunately I found out that the threads on the Lyman 55 aren't compatible with those on the top of the Lee powder-through die, despite the fact that it says that it fits most turret presses (it will with an included adapter if you happen to have a free die position, but I don't have that luxury). Has anyone successfully mounted a Lyman 55 on the Lee turret press?
I'm also using a Lee primer feeder, and I'm concerned that even if I can mount the Lyman 55 on top of the Lee powder-through die that it won't clear the primer feeder when the turret rotates.
Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated. If anyone is successfully using another powder measure (that they think highly of) on the Lee unit, I'd love to hear about that too, particularly if it auto feeds when the press is engaged (the manual dispense on the Lyman 55 is fine, but an auto-dispense would be great). I'd hate to return the 55, but I need something that'll work! Thanks!
