    looking at the Lee Classic turret and the Lee Deluxe turret in the anniversity package.

    what if any is the diffrence in the 2 presses. as there are no stores within 60 miles of me will have to order online. i seem to see a diffrence in the pictures but not sure. If i was going on price the Classic would seem to be a better press, but have no idea..the Classic set runs about $90 more than the Deluxe set.

    The classic is more stout, much heavier casting. The deluxe is hollow cavity cast. They both will turn out good ammo though. The deluxe seems to have more play in it and more tweaking to be done.

    The Classic also has a much better spent primer recovery system. Well worth any cost difference.

    The classic turret has a better spent primer disposal, larger diameter ram, taller so you can load larger calibers and stronger/better linkage than the deluxe turret.
