Congrats. Nice setup I've been contemplating buying it for a while. I do have the reloading manual. Good book.

I recommend the kit from Kempfs their kit does not come with scale or manual like other classic turret kits Ive seen but it comes with a set of dies of your choice the autodisk powder measure riser and the rifle kit comes with the rifle charging die which I felt was an excellent trade off. Also ordered mine on Saturday and it was at the house on Tuesday

That's the setup I'm looking at getting myself. Gotta wait now though, dogs went to the vet so they took all the money up

Yeppers, you have found an addictive habit for sure. You can spend as much time and money as you have available doing this. It never ends.

You're going to love that Classic Turret!

I picked one up for Christmas last year and have thoroughly enjoyed it. I've had a Lee Challenger (single stage) press since 1988 and Pro1000 since the same year. I'm not overly-crazy about the Pro1000 but at the time, I was a poor and starving young LE type who was shooting an awful lot of IPSC and that Pro1000 did the job.

Started reloading forty years ago with my dad and on my own for just over thirty years now. Been through some green and blue equipment, but that Classic Cast and Classic Turret from Lee are about as solid and good as they get. I'm going to add the Classic Cast to the bench this summer and relegate the Challenger to de-priming, sizing my tumble-lube bullets (I also cast my own bullets) and other case-prep duties.

Older I get, the less of a hurry I find myself in, so that Classic Turret and the single-stage presses do just fine for me.

The wife spent 500 bucks at the vet on the two dogs and one has to go back today for another 100 bucks worth of test. That's a press and then some! I hate vets!
