I've started a couple of new reloaders with the lee classic turret. It can be used as a single stage to start out with, then as practice and knowledge is gained, go to a semi-progressive mode. With the excellent disc powder measure, and safety prime, you can load 2-300 rounds of handgun ammo per hour. Spare turrets are about 10 bucks apiece, then you can mount your dies, adjust them once and leave them. Caliber changes take all of 5 minutes, swap turrets, shell holder and maybe primer punches,--done!.

The lee classic turret is entirely different than any other turret, it auto advances every time the ram is lowered, but that feature can easily be disabled. That allows you to do single stage loading.


Another feature of the classic turret is the spent primers are disposed of straight down the middle of the hollow ram into a plastic tube with a cap on it. Primer residue is loaded with lead styphonate, an easily absorbed lead salt. Other presses like the rock chucker have primers flying everywhere, sometimes into the tray at the bottom of the press. The primer residue is also abrasive, it doesn't belong on the ram where it can wear the hole it rides in.

i agree with the rockchucker kit. i got one about 4 yrs. ago. only thing i would add is a digital scale. If your worried about time consumption, if you have spare time on your hands or just watching tv, bring in your brass and primers and sit there and prime brass. i always have about 50 brass ready for powder and bullet at all times.
