    its real easy to turn out cases in the correct length with the lee and a drill,i use 18volt cordless but a cheap regular drill also works.there is a little trick as to when to back off,just add light to medium pressure.you dont want to push down hard on case or it will chatter.......use can also use the holder and 0000 steel wool and polish the cases if you dont want to tumble old semperfi

    I wish they made one for the .204 ruger. They will not make any less than .22 according to their website anyway.

    Well I was looking through my Midway catalog at their Lee case length gauges for the lock stud cutter, and saw that there were 31 calibers that Midway had marked as "Midway exclusive". I guess they had Lee run them off a bunch of off the wall calibers that Lee doesn't think there is enough demand to offer all the time.

    They have them for 5.7X28mm, 7.62X25, .32 ACP, .32 S&W, .32 H&R Mag, 357 SIG, .45 S&W Schofield, 50 AE, 6mm BR, .257 WBY Mag, 6.5 Grendel, 6.5 Rem Mag, 300 Whisper, 300 RSAUM, 30.378 WBY, .32 WIN Spl, 8X56R, 338 Marlin Express, 338-06 A Square, 338 Rem Ultramag, 350 Rem Mag, 9.3X62, .75 Ruger, 416 Rigby, 38-40 WCF, 405 Win, 450 Bushmaster, 450 Marlin, 577-450, 458 SOCOM, and 458 Lott.
