    I am tired of beating the Lee Loader with a rawhide mallet. I know there are arbor presses such as K & M, Sinclair and etc. but I am wondering if there is a cheap alternative.

    I have three 7/8 - 14 bench top presses. The Lee Loaders are used mainly at the range for testing varmint caliber loads and also take them to the western states to reload for prairie dogs. Therefore, looking for a portable press.

    I have looked at the arbor presses at Harbor Freight, Enco, Northern Tool and etc... to get the press height requirements I need you get into presses that weigh 35 pounds and up. Portable but heavy.

    I will be attending 3 or 4 gun shows between now and April. Will see if I can pickup a used Sinclair, K & M or B-Square press.

    I have used Lee's hand press with great results. It uses standard dies and you can use it anywhere.

    Go with a Lee press-which ever one you like. I will work much better then the Lee Loader and a arbor press. I know, I tried the same thing
