    Specifically their AmmoMaster progressive press. Well, supposed to be progressive. Wont load more than three in a row without something going to hell.

    Lee's 'Perfect' Powder Measure is anything but... up to 0.5gr difference from throw to throw.

    The priming system on the AmmoMaster is the absolute cheesiest piece of crap ever devised.

    Oh well, back to the blue!

    Hmmmm............sounds like you ran into some junk, Doc.

    The Perfect powder measure I have is very consistent with its throws. Only problem I noticed is that fine grain (read, pistol ) powder leaks around the shaft. Rifle powder does quite well.

    Never buy any Lee presses, except maybe the 4 station Turret press that looks like it might give a limited progressive service.

    I'll buy Lee dies, auto primer (hand disk thingy) but that's about it.

    Their powder measure system is some abstract numerical system that totally sucks...and seldom throws consistent measure droppings. The one I once had kept coming loose and screwing up the loading process...dumped all that Lee crap except the primer system and their dies. Sorry, Lee...but you need to get with the standards of other reloading mfg. with its powder grain system. And build your damn powder measures out of some pot metal like melted down old Spanish pistols. This ain't a plastic world is it?

    I love my Dillons...with Hornady coming in behind it. And 3rd my C&H 4 die station H-press which I've greatly up graded with some invention accessories I've come up with.

    A friend bought a lee progressive press and had so many problems that they,lee, bought it back from him and he bought a blue machine..No problems and great customer service,so everybody says..
    I like my Lyman T-Mag..No problems and not too slow..

    Lyman is every bit as good as RCBS stuff. I've owned some Lyman accessories over the years and I like their dies very much.

    Sam, It's about time! Your reloading bench sure looked bare with no press on it.

    Ya know, from all the pics that I have seen of reloading equipment and rooms, my loading space seems to match all the others(small). I say we all turn the nice big kitchens into reloading rooms! Are you guys behind me?
