Lee Classic Turret Press

Do any of y'all use this press for reloading? The price seems right to get started out to see if I want to move forward.

Mostly going to reload 762 x 39 and maybe 38 sp. for the woman.

Been using one for nearly a year now. I started out with the Lee Challenger Breech Lock Single Stage Press first. If had it to do all over again I would have started with the Lee Turret. I really like mine & recommend it. Search youtube videos & you can learn a lot about it.

Thanks for the reply Greyfox. I appreciate it.

It doesn't seem like there is a lot of traffic here. I posted the same on another gun forum in the reloading section and got 3 very positive replies and 1 it sucks reply.

Everybody loves the Dillons. I'm not sure if I'm ready to dive that deep into reloading yet.

I used one for my first press. It worked very good. Found I didn't use the auto indexing too much. Mostly used it as a single stage press. It did a very good job. After about five years I moved on to a Co-Ax. You can't go wrong with a Lee Turret Press.

If you want to know if a press is good, you can check on ebay for current prices for used ones. If they are going for almost as much as a new one, then the press is a good one.

I ended up with two of them. One is mounted to the main bench. The other I made into a portable setup I haul to the range. Just have to swap turrets once everything is dialed in.

The Lee Auto Drum powder dispenser with the riser die is a great complement to the press.

That looks like a nice portable set up flash. I just started using mine this last weekend. I loaded up some 762 x 39 using H4198 with the .311 Sierra 125g.

I ordered some SST .310 Hornady that just came in. I hope to load some of them this weekend.
