Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

You have a reloader Special As do I. there is no need to upgrade as this press is sturdy and will produce excellent ammo.....
That is a great starer press and mine is still going stong after 20 years of service.

The reloader special of mine has been going for at least 30 years and still loads all my ammo. I am a little afraid to load ammo for my rifles on a turret or progressive press.

my lee turret hasnt never let me down...ever sense i bought it about 7 years ago (no probs whats so ever)...and ive loaded thousands of rounds from .223's up to 35 whelen...of course the heavy work like turning 3006's into 8mm's or 7.62x54r into 8x56r's is left up to the single stage lee classic.and shes been going for about 4 years now
