Deprimer in Lee dies

Post by jhoser2000 » 21 Aug 2012, 11:31

I have done a search for this with finding nothing unless I was using the wrong key words, but my question is the depriming rod in the Lee dies how tight does it have to be for it not to move or pull out. I have been spraying the cases with case lube but every now and then it pulls loose. Just curious as I do not want to ruin the dies.

The deprimer has to be pretty tight. You need a 1/2" and a 3/4" box wrench. Do yourself a favor and DO NOT use adjustable wrenchs. If you get a batch of bad brass and are ripping off the heads of every third case no matter how well you clean and lube inside and out - adjustable wrenches are just gonna mess up the top bolt pretty bad.
