my previous post sounded like i didn't care for the original lee turret press...it's okay, but their powder scale gives me the willies!
good for you with the teaching; i wish folks in this area were interested, but they're hunters who want a deer or turkey every time the gun goes bang.
i like single-stage training, but you can do that even with a dillon 550. my lee classic cast turret concedes nothing to my 'chucker, with features i prefer over the old rcbs (i hate dead primers bouncing out onto the floor). it's also lots less expensive and makes changing calibers...or backing up a step...so much more convenient.
i wouldn't like losing my dillons, or 'chucker, but if i lost it all, i'd replace the lee...
