I first used them in 1970. Loaded shotgun and pistol. Just used the .357 pistol one tonight. I do not have to go to my re-loader bench just sit at my desk, listen to some music (Jim Reaves/Patsy Cline) and reload and relax. Takes a little longer, but sometimes time is not that important.

Just yesterday I went to a friends house to check out his setup. He is new to reloading and has fast become knowledgable. He has a LEE Turret that he got from cabelas. It was as fast as I would ever want to reload, operated simply and effectively. I was looking at Dillion presses but for the amount of reloading I'm gonna do the Lee press really impressed me. I'm gonna get one with my tax returns and I'm sure I will not be disappointed. It's a great investment and I look forward to relaxing and enjoying the time spent investing in my favorite hobby. At first I was caught up in getting the best I could afford but his 240.00 Lee press will do everything that I want, glad I went to see him.

Understandable, and if you want to change you can sell it on Craigslist, which may be somewhere to look before buying. Money is tight for most of us, I for one feel your pain brother!

Very easy. You will need to buy a small hammer with nylon heads. I also use a small cutting board to work on so I do not dent up my desk. All fits into a desk drawer and can be used at any time.

Are you talking about the Classic cast, or progressive?
I use a cast, have for 18 years. I load everything on it. 16 rifle and pistol calibers at one time or another. Everything from .380 to 7mm Rem Mag and 9.3x57.
