Of course, I agree as well. Looks like I'll be spending some time this evening cleaning up the new press.

Tada....

Why not use the turret press to de-prime too since it has the tube ?

Ale-8(1) will become famous soon enough
Some folks like to run only clean brass thru their dies and "fancy" presses, so they deprime and clean their brass first as discussed above. I do it before loading on my old single-stage 'Chucker for the same reason . . . I don't like handling dirty brass or running them thru my dies.

JMHO

A benefit to cleaning shipping oil/grease is that you get familiar with your new tool!

I dedicated my single stage press as the de-priming station now.

Now all I need a a few free hours so I can reload.
