    Should not be any problem. If I had two presses, I'd do the same thing.

    You could definitely use two presses if you wanted to, but using a turret press would be faster and easier.

    I started out on 1 single press then went to 3. 1st one was used for the depriming and sizing. 2nd one for the belling of the mouth. The 3rd one for setting the bullet and crimping. I did just fine with 3 It did save time till i got the Laymans T-Mag II. I still use the T-Mag for rifle ammo and now a proud owner of the LNL press that i use for the hand gun ammo. I still have all 3 single stage presses. I now use them for sizing cast bullets and for them cases that are military machine gun ammo. I have found that they have thicker walls and need more force to size. That way if i brake the Lee single stage press i am not out of a crap load of money and are cheep to replace.

    No problem at all. As was suggested, a turret press would be easier and faster.
