Default Lee classic turret reloading press

Well I am pretty sure about this and I have been reading up for about three months on reloading. I am willing to spend the money on a Lee classic turret press. I have a Lyman reloading manual and have since read through everything I need to so far. Now I am ready to start. Just wanted to get others opinions who have had a press like this or similar before I put money in it just yet.

I've got a Lee Turret Press... a single stage and a pro 1000. No issues with Lee products what so ever.

I have one, just last week pushed out my first 10 rounds. With the exception of the person operating it, the press ran like a top.

I have one, I like it well enough. It's does a very good job, especially when you factor in the price.

I've used a Lee Classic and Deluxe Turret press for a very long time.They both produce very good ammo for a cheap price.
There are more expensive turret presses out there,but they don't do anything better than the Lee's.
