    I have a Star 38 cal. reloading press. I would like to adjust the primer seating depth. I do not have an instruction manual or sufficient number of brain cells to figure it out on my own. Can you help. Thank you. HMB

    The primer depth is adjusted by moving the rod to the left of the resizing die up or down. This rod pushes on a lever under the base of the machine to seat the primers. Used to use my Star machine a lot. Haven't shot pistol much since my eyes went South.

    Thanks for the help Mudshark. I mounted a Tasco Pro Point Red dot on my pistol to take care of the eye problem. The only problem now is making enough shells. Shooting steel plate matches burns up alot of ammo. HMB

    If that loader ever fails you permanently, HMB, I can attest to the remarkable performance of either the Dillon Square deal for pistols only or the 550B for pistol and rifle ammo. I had the 550B and had a separate loading turret for .38, .357, .45ACP, .257 Ackley Improved, and M1-Carbin just so I could switch calibers quickly and never had a serious problem of any type; also, guaranteed for your life regardless of what happens to it.....Bob Dodd

    HMB,

    Do you find shooting steel more or less expensive than shooting trap. Personally, I find it alot cheaper...especially if you make your own ammo. I find that the matches cost far less to enter...and typically there is a more laid back crowd at the pistol matches I have been to.

    Forrest,

    You are right on all counts. Plus equipment is a lot less expensive. Our range has covered firing points and is heated in the winter. It's also fun to watch and the awards are great. HMB
