Default 7.62x54r in Lee Loader

I load 7.62x54r for my Mosin Nagants in a Lee Loader. Slow, but easy and relaxing. I'll sit out back on a nice day and reload 50 or so. The scoop load is a little light but is adequate for plinking.
I don't mind the hammer. It really is safe.

Default Love my Lee stuff

I have been reloading for about three years now and have nothing but good experience with my Lee equipment. 4- hole turret and a single stage.

I loaded a whole bunch of 303 British ammunition with a Lee Loader starting in 1965. I did have one primer fire when seating with the hammer. I decided this was related to a build up of crud in the primer pocket which supported the primer anvil too high. I started cleaning my primer pockets and never had it happen again. I still have that loader.
I once had a Lee Target model loader in 7x57 and it worked very well. In fact, If some one has one in 308 they would like to sell, I would be interested. GD

I have used Lee since 1970 and started out with their little shotgun shell reloader that you needed a hammer for. No problems.
Since then I have reloaded a lot of different calibers and am set up with all Lee . from single stage press to progressive to Lee primer, and three shotgun loaders from load all up . all lee. no problems and would not buy anything else.
But thats just me

I have reloaded over 50,000 rounds in the last ten years on my Lee equipment for about 20 different calibers. I started with a 3 hold turret for my .44 Mag, and quickly progress to the .357/.38, .45 Auto, .30-06, .32 Win Special, 8mm Mauser, 9mm Luger, 357 SIG, .45-70, .223 Rem, .30 Carbine, .32 S&W Long, .38 S&W, .44 Special, and some more I can't think of right now. I now have a 4 hole cast turret press with auto index and love it even more than the 3 hole. I also have the 20 pound and 10 pound Lee lead melters and 16 sets of molds. I have nothing but great things to say about Lee. Best buy in reloading. Lyman, RCBS, and Hornady stuff is probably great too, but most of their stuff is too pricey for me. And their dies don't come with a shell holder and cost more. The Lee Factory Crimp die is by far superior to any product made for crimping. I do have a set of Lyman dies for a .222 Rem. that a co-worker gave me, and they suck compared to Lee. Hard to adjust, and decapping pins break. I have never broke a Lee decapping pin in any caliber, even with a crimped in military primer. Just my .02 cents.

I started with RCBS back in the early 70's, but I tried a Lee 4 hole turret and I was hooked. I gave the RCBS press to a friend but kept the powder measure and hand priming tool. I also still have the lathe type case trimmer but it just gathers dust, the Lee trimmer system is so superior till you can't compare the two.
I also have a Dillon 550B but it just gets used for my 40 S&W ammo, everything else is done on the Lee.
I also have a Lee hand press that I love to use when I'm at my cabin.
I haven't had any problems at all with my Lee tools, but I guess some people can tear up and anvil with a rubber hammer!
