Anybody here use a Lee reloader?
Got a 4 piece Lee deluxe die set for the .45ACP/ .45 auto rim
and a Lee 4-hole quick change turret I'll sell cheap.
Hardly used, because it was 2nd/spare set.

My brother and I were into reloading some years back, but he and a friend reloading some 9mm really screwed up and ruined 2 guns with under loads and way overloaded shells. My brother's friend was lucky he didn't loose any fingers!

I took that as a message from the gods, and I stopped reloading.
Sold my 1/2 interest to my brother and this is what I got left.
Thought I had a box of .45 FMJ bullets, but I can't find them.
I'm mean, how do you lose a 500 count box of bullets down in the basement!!!

Anyway if anybody is interested, PM me, we'll work out something.

I've got a Rockchucker single stage, so I can't use it.

I originally started out using a Lee Classic Reloader for my .303 British. That thing is actually a really good tool especially for the .303, due to the fact many milsurp Enfields have excessive head space. The Lee Classic only neck sizes which decreases case stress and makes for a better chamber fit too.

I like the Lee system. The single stage I started with decades ago was very consistent in quality. Just took a while. That's how my brother convinced me to go in with him on this outfit.....

Added all the bells and whistles too, and a few other things like electronic scale, and all the die sets for our calibers and extra turrets. that was 8 sets of dies and turrets. Spent almost a grand on the whole setup.

Thing is, at this amount spent it would take us 1000's of rounds of each caliber to recoup the investment.

Speer 185g TMJ FN, Hornady 185g HAP, Speer 185g Gold Dot, Hornady 200g LSWC, Hornady 230g HAP, Speer 230g TMJ RN
