Product Description

At the heart of the Lee Precision Anniversary Challenger II Kit is the Challenger Press, a strong O-frame press with a larger-than-average opening angled at 30° for maximum hand clearance. Compound leverage easily performs full-length sizing on even the largest magnum cases. There’s a built-in, easy-to-empty primer catcher. Complete powder-handling system, including the precise Perfect Powder Measure. Case preparation tools include a cutter and lock stud to trim cases, an inside/outside case mouth chamber tool, primer pocket cleaner, and a tube of premium sizing lube. You also get one Breech Lock Quick Change Bushing. This bushing makes changing dies a snap and accomplish the task in seconds. Once mounted on your die, you'll never have to adjust the die again unless you want to. It saves time, eliminates guesswork and ensures the consistency of your reloaded product. You spend less time fiddling and more time cranking out rounds. To use the case cutter and lock stud a specific shell holder and case length gauge is needed for each caliber to be trimmed.

After recently purchasing a Remington 700 chambered in .308, I decided that i wanted to start reloading. I have many friends who tell me to not buy lee products, and fork out the big bucks for more expensive brands such as RCBS or Dillon. Boy am i glad i didn't listen to them! This press is awesome, the quality of this press is in my opinion on par with that of other more expensive presses in the same category. The machining of all the parts are very well cut, and operation is smooth. Thanks to this press i have made very high accuracy ammunition for the price of the cheapest stuff.

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.

I've been reloading with this kit for over a year now. It's fantastic quality, and I've been really pleased. The only shortcoming of this kit is the scale (I bought a digital scale to make things easier on myself). If someone were inclined to use the scale, it would just take time to decipher it - it's a little confusing.

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.

I found that this set is an excellent purchase for the beginner re-loader. It may not have all the funtions of a full blown mass production unit, but it does allow you to learn proper re-loading techniques and has all that is needed, except the dies and reloading manual, to start you off. As far as a reloading manual, the Lyman reloading book is an excellent choice because it lists multiple bullet manufacturers whereas a reloading book by specific bullet manufacturers only lists their own bullets and do not offer a broader spectrum of choices. Great purchase and very pleased.

I bought this press for my first adventure into reloading after reading dozens of reviews on different presses. I looked at Dillon, RCBS, Hornady, and others and read reviews and from what I found they said that this press was a great beginner press that has many components that many long term re-loaders still use today after buying some of the more expensive ones. I have had this press for about 2 weeks or so, loaded 100 rounds and must say the press itself is pretty great however there are a few things in the kit that I'm already looking to upgrade:

-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.

I received this single stage press in November 2012. Since then, I have reloaded about 1000 rounds through it with flawless precision. One thing is for sure, Lee makes a quality product.

Pros:
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.

Cons:
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.
