If i had to pick one thing i didn't like about the kit, it would be the priming system. I wish they would have thrown in a hand primer instead, but still i will give this kit 5 stars. This kit is worth buying just to try.
If anyone is is new, here is what i recommend with the kit: some type of accurate reloading chars/manuals, digital caliper, lee deluxe die set for you caliber, lee case length gauge for your caliber (this kit comes with trimmer tool), and a case neck brush.
Upon buying this kit, you will need the following to really start reloading:
Digital scale (optional, as mentioned before)
Reloading dies (Lee carbide dies don't require case lube and work fantastic!)
Lee Breech Lock Bushings (you put your dies in these so you can change between dies fast - sooo worth the money)
Calipers (use factory ammo as a guide for length, or use manual suggestions)
Brass (pick up at the range, buy or save your own)
Bullets (Barry's plated bullets are great quality at a reasonable price)
Always follow reloading manual suggestions, take your time, and be mindful of the process. Reloading is fun and rewarding, but obviously carries some hazards with it.
I find it satisfying to reuse brass instead of letting it sit at the range. Reduce/reuse/recycle!
All in, once you're ready to reload you should have a couple hundred dollars invested when starting with this kit - and you'll pay that off in no time. A 50 round box of 9mm costs around $15-$20 here...I reload for about $5-6 per box on average. I've reloaded about 1000 rounds. My equipment has paid for itself, AND I now practice at the range a lot more because I've always got plenty of ammo on hand.
-The Press Itself - Solidly build, easy to put together and install. Comes with all the hardware you need to put it together EXCEPT the 3 bolts that you would use to bolt it down to a table. Besides that it works great, I'm reloading .45acp off it and it works great. My only issue with the press is that on the left side of the press there is a small hole where you can connect a provided tube which is supposed to be the primer catcher. In a perfect world (and about 3 times out of the 100 rounds I've de-primed) the primer comes off on the left after de-priming, falls into the little square (which is from screwing a small flat metal piece onto the press, also included) and feeds into the tube for proper disposal later. However, 97/100 the primer shot off to the right(the opposite direction its supposed to) onto the floor after de-priming. I ended up putting a shopping bag on the floor to the right and i catch a majority of them that way.
-The Scale - Took a minute to get it calibrated but it seems to hold 0 pretty well. What i don't like is on the far right side of the scale there is this little miniature slider that can give you the .010th of a grain number.Read more ›
Single stage - If you're in a hurry, get another press or another hobby. I love the single stage action because it allows me to focus on the stage I'm currently in, i.e. when charging my cases, I pay strict attention to my grain weight and not whether or not I got a primer properly seated. That was in a previous stage.
Kit - This kit will allow you to get set up, but not reload. It provides many of the needed items, and some you may/may not use, i.e. tube of case lube. Plan on putting a little more money aside.
Set-up - The detailed instructions are awesome. This was my first experience with reloading and in a matter of an hour, I was ready to start reloading. The instructions are filled with pictures and installation instructions. Get yourself a dedicated area or you'll be sorry. Reloading requires many precision measurements, so when installing your press, make sure you have a dedicated space. When installing your dies, the instructions are clear and to the point. You will not be guessing on set-up, Lee takes care of that for you. Buy extra Quick Change Bushings, you'll need about 3 per caliber.
Cost - The cost associated with the press is inexpensive for a reason, it's an intro to reloading kit. Introductory meaning, be prepared to invest in the hobby. Again, if this is not a hobby, spend your money on something else. For what I have invested, I could have bought a nice Springfield XD, but I love the hobby. Like my dad said, every thing in reloading costs another $40.Read more ›
