My dad said it was the first reloader he ever had. Does anyone know if they make them in .357 mag and .308 win? This one is for a 20 gauge. I also found about 150 Hornady .338 250 grain bullets ready to load but first I need to buy the .338 :)

Yes. they were made in .38/357, and .308. Here is the link to Lee Precision.

Two howevers- they are out of stock, and they are about $40 each. If you already have a press, you can get dies for less than that. Have used one, it works, is slow.

You can still find them on the bay from time to time. A 20 gauge Lee Load All is the very first reloader I had when I was 12 years old. It worked. I wish I still had it.

I have one for 22-250. Great for experimenting.

I have one in .38 special bought it a few years ago. Easy to use just be careful not to over crimp if you're going to use it. I have experience in this over crimping arena.

Does it look like its missing anything?

It should have a shot dipper and a powder dipper. Here is a picture........

Thanks for the pictures. Imagine using one of those! I guess it'd be OK if you owned a single-shot rifle.

I actually found one at my local gunsmith a week ago for 357 Magnum / 38 Special. He was asking $10. It has all the pieces so I snagged it up. So far I have reloaded 35 38 Special with it (most of those were tonight!). Kinda slow going, especially compared to my progressive press. Honestly I find it very relaxing and rewarding, in a sense, despite all the banging with a hammer.

On Midway USA they're not expensive. $27. And the 308 is actually in stock.

I have many in many different calibers. Last I bought was in 303 Savage. Not like I need a progressive reloader for those... Slow, simple, but they work well enough and they are inexpensive, compact, self-contained, and very portable.
