I bought one. 9mm luger dies are available for this at Midway. Dies seem to be sold out everywhere and the places that do have them are selling them at 300% markup. Paid $41.99 for them at midway last night, that seems to be the regular retail price. Get them while you still can.

Did you find primers and powder?

Unfortunately powder and primers are impossible to find short of paying scalper prices on gun broker. I had bought some a few months back in anticipation of buying a press but not much.

This is a great deal. The truth is this is where 90% of people get their start reloading. Everyone should consider learning how to reload. Nothing is better than being able to load 500 bullets when everyone else is looking for factory ammunition at Walmart

I bought this press set during Covid quarantine while I and my family were all sick. I have loaded close to a thousand rounds so far and I'm very happy with it. While I'm sure there are better and worse presses all I can say is this one works and it's at a superb price point. I am currently loading blackout, 223 and 308 and I have the dies for 9 mm but I just don't have brass for that

Where did you get your dies from? I am looking at reloading 9mm, .223/5.56, and .308.

Thinking about this kit as a first time reloader. I’ve been planning on getting started for many years, and have done lots of reading and watching YouTube videos, but kept putting it off. Was pretty much set on the Classic Turret Press, but this would be cheaper to get started, and I suspect I would always have some use for it even when I graduate to a more progressive press. I’m thinking we might be in a survival situation soon, but as has been mentioned, if that’s the case, bullets, primers and powder would get even harder to find. Right now I’m seeing plenty of powder available and a few bullets but no primers. I’ve been picking up brass for a while and have a good supply to get started. It needs to be de-primed and cleaned. Should I get started with this or spring for the Turret press?

If you are only going to own one press, the Lee classic cast turret press is a good choice. You can crank out 150-200 rounds per hour of pistol ammo without sweating too much, and it will auto-index rifle rounds up to 30-06 if you like. You can also disable the auto-indexing and manually index or use it as a single stage press. They are built solidly and other than replacing a nylon washer every now and then, they will outlast you. Having owned both the Challenger press (sold) and the Classic Cast Turret, I recommend springing for the turret. I've loaded thousands and thousands of rounds on mine.

As for the rest of this kit, the scale is quite good if not a little challenging to use, but the Lee Perfect Powder measure is not very good. It is accurate but it leaks ball powder all over the bench, especially really fine stuff like Win296. Works fine with stick and larger flake powders such as Unique. Get yourself an Autodisk Pro and/or Deluxe Perfect Powder measure.

Start with something like this, decent scale, simple press, working powder drop.
Get a set of calipers and find 2 or 3 good load data books....get as many as you can because not all books cover all loads and you never know what powder or bullet you might have to settle for.
Get digital calipers so you can easily switch from standard to metric....you'll need that functionality.
Case lube, a tumbler and some media for it (ground walnut shells or corn cob seem best with a dash of *Comet* scouring powder added for those stubborn to remove stains :) ). Something to separate the cases from the media (colander works fine to start). A set of dies for whatever caliber you'll be doing (suggest starting with straight wall pistol, it's easiest) and a shell holder for the press.
If you was a close friend I'd say fuck this and go RCBS to start, but this will work fine, it's just not built as well.
Be careful, measure twice, then measure again.

Thanks ! That’s what I’ve heard. This will be slow but going slow seems to make sense when starting out. I recently went ahead and got a set of Lee 9mm dies and a riser for the powder drum.

Now, if you could only find primers, cases, powder, and projectiles to load. Hmm. These are stupid, frustrating times we live in.

Shoulda bought primers when they were 20-25$ a brick.
Cases...pick them up at the range or local shooting spot, run em in the tumbler.
Powder I still see all over, a bit high price but I have yet to see 30$ a pound (yea it'll get there soon).
Bullets...go buy a Corbin bullet swaging press and make the damn things....or cast your own lead, soft or hardcast, just don't forget the bullet lube (yea, it's like that).
Tip: the local recycler will buy all the brass cases you deem unworthy after inspecting for about 2-3$ a pound, it'll pay for more supplies.

Little of what you said is helpful for thr first time reloader who would be interested in this kit, especially the part about going back in time and buying cheap primers.

I've been reloading for many years and have a good store of components.

Sure did. Posted a relevant pic of a an AK you insisted I didn't own. When you got punked, you commented on the drapes. It don't get much more pillow-biter than that. You. Literally. Commented. On the. Drapes.

You haven't made a "point" before, or since, that hasn't fully aligned you with the brotherhood of dumb a55.

Trust me; nobody is following you around, sweetheart. Absolutely, nobody.

How does this compare to the RCBS rick chucker kit that is normally $250 or so?

0 votes

I have the RCBS setup you mentioned. My friend has the Lee set and I have used it. I recommend going with Lee as is is about as good at less than half the price. The RCBS has a more substantial feeling press, but the Lee press is plenty sturdy. The RCBS press has pretty poor spent primer handling. It's a mess. Lee is far superior in this. I like the RCBS powder measure and scale a little better, but not a huge difference. I haven't used the Lee primer tool, so can't comment on that. The other components of each kit are relatively minor. Lee is a great value.

Good kit for the price. I currently go with 2 of these presses, one dedicated for depriming. I still use the powder dispenser, and use the scale as a double-check for my electronic scale.

Other than that, I no longer use anything else from this kit. Moved on to an RCBS bench primer, Dillon bench swagger, and bigger hand tools (Lyman and RCBS) for primer pocket cleaning and deburring, and a Lyman case trimmer.

I find the hand tools in this kit to be way too small to be comfortable, and although the priming thing is nice, I wanted one off the press.

Eventually I’ll move on to a progressive, but I’m in no rush.

You'll need caliber-specific dies. A caliper. Recommend a reloading manual (or 2 or 3)

Lots to learn with reloading, and ya gotta start somewhere! Lee really comes through for those who want to get started / reload w/o a making a big investment.

This is exactly what I started with. The press works fine for me, the scale is not as easy to use as a digital, but works fine, the priming tools work fine, and all the other tid bits work fine. My only real gripe was the powder measure not being very consistent with 4064 powder. This is where a digital scale saved me because I can zero on each case and weigh after charges and tap a little out or in. Just my opinion, but this looks like a good price on what I think is a decent way to get started reloading.

Get a powder trickler. Just a few bucks but saves time. You'll find a spoon, case etc that will consistently get you close (or your measure set light a little), and the trickler will bring it up to even weight.
