There are a few reasons to buy a press like this and a few reasons not to. I did a lot of research on single stage presses before I settled on this one and I would like to share some of the often overlooked features with you.

Do you need a press like this?:
If you are solely producing pistol rounds and not doing any heavy operations like reforming, necking down or full case rifle case resizing this is probably a little overkill. Now its not to say that this press cant handle producing pistol rounds, it does both jobs admirably. But if you are only going to produce pistol rounds and you are budget limited or looking to experiment with reloading you could certainly do a fine job with lighter weight / less expensive press.

HOWEVER if you are producing rifle rounds or will be producing rifle rounds in the future and you are looking for a single stage press that more than holds its own with presses that are much more expensive. This is definitely the way to go.

Breech Lock Classic Cast or Classic Cast:
The Breech Lock system by Lee is basically a quick way of changing from one die to another die with a simple 1/8 th turn of the die and lifting motion. For presses such as the regular Classic Cast press that do not have the Breech Lock system installed you will have to thread the die 15 to 20 turns down to the lock nut every time. The Breech Lock is a convenience for quick change applications but it is impossible accommodate the Lee Precision Reloading Die Set-50 BMG (Grey), additionally you have to purchase either the

The press is certainly a classic. The design of this press has changed little in years. In fact, when I recieved it in the mail, I found it to look almost identical to the one my father owned fire for many years. This version is updated however, with the ability to except Lee's newer quick change dies. Only had the press a month or so, but have already loaded a little over 1000 rounds with no issues. Press operation is smooth as glass,and provides good feel, even to those who have never done hand loading before. This press is not meant for high volume loading, but is a great way to start out learning, and a good single stage press for making accurate loads for long range rifle rounds. It's a solid piece that will last you for years.

That's about all you'll get, is some green paint instead of red if you spend more on a RockChucker. I've used both, I learned on a RCBS, and this Lee is a better press. It's bigger, stronger, smoother, has a better system for catching the primers (once you install a fat drinking straw in the ram so they don't fly out the tab for the priming arm), the arm is more versatile for adjusting to your needs, etc etc.

It's just a better press....period. And, it's cheaper. Also, us gun people tend to be pretty patriotic, and Lee has never imported commie steel from China to save money, while still charging their customers the same price in order to make more profit. RCBS has, and they will refuse to tell you how to identify if your press is Chinese steel.

i have been reloading for over 40 years. you can trust me on what I am about to say. the lee precision classic cast press may not be the best single stage press that you can buy. but......there is not a better single stage press that can be had, that is a better value. it is not the least expensive and not the most expensive by a long shot. it is simply the best single stage press that you can buy, for the money.

they say it is heavy duty. heavy duty is an understatement. I am guessing it weighs 15-16 pounds. the compound leverage is outstanding. the priming system is very positive with lots of 'feel' [you experienced reloaders will know what I mean].

there is only one negative, the handle, although functional, is a bit cheesy, somewhat cheaply made. not big enough deal to lose my 5 star rating. I never installed mine, I used an extra Dillon handle I have. a friend took the offset out of the handle with a torch. the lee handle should actually function just fine for most folks.

lee precision has always been a company that seems like they want to make friends instead of money.

I have been reloading for several years now for handgun ammo only. For this I have the Lee classic cast turret press. Fantastic press by the way. But, due to the cost of 30-30 ammo at a $1 per round I decided it was time to reload these to cut costs.

I researched the various single stage presses on the market such as the Rock Chucker (also a fantastic press) the Hornady and Redding presses as well. All of these presses are really good presses. What it boiled down to was price, features, customer support, warranty and construction.

The Lee is made from recycled cast train rails. Very clever! This thing is a rugged, heavy piece of cast construction. It has the ability to be used right or left handed by simply removing a single bolt and positioning the handle on either side. This is a feature the others don't offer. The spent primers are dispatched through the center of the ram and down into a clear capped tube. From there the cap can be removed and the spent primers can be dumped into a trash can. No mess. This is also a feature only used by Lee. There is an included bracket that attaches to the press for the Lee safety prime system. I like priming on the press.

The base has 3 mounting holes and flats on the base that align the press squarely against the reloading bench front. I am right handed and had to mount the press on the left side of my bench since the Lee Turret is already mounted on the right side. So what I did was to mount the handle on the left side of the press and using a propane torch I heated the handle at its center and bent the handle towards the right side across the front of the press so that I could easily reach the ball (handle). This allows me to cycle the handle and yet keep the clearance needed to position a case either in or out of the press.
