Re: Use hand loader?
That just made me cringe.
When I reload there is no radio or anything on. If someone comes down stairs, I quickly find a good stopping place and talk to them, but not at the same time.
I love to reload and find it relaxing, actually. But I have a set routine when I am doing it. Things go in certain places. And I always put everything away.
To the OP, I have never used a hand press. Mine is an old lyman turret. Turrets aren't that important, in fact I use mine merely to hold my other dies and only go through one process at a time.
Having said that, the only difficulty that I could see would be depriming/resizing cases. I lube mine and they are still difficult sometimes. I don't know what it would be like to get out a sticking case from a hand held apparatus, but I would think it was difficult.
The deer didn't disappear.... the 250,000 guys who used to walk around and make the deer move did.
