Ok I really want to get into the reloading process. What would you guys recomend. I am lean to the turret for now and if I really get into maybe up grade to the progressive.
I would recommend a single stage though I started full bore with 2 Lee Pro 1000 a progressive due to available at a great price. I am going very slow and have 4 great books I'm in the process of reading from cover to cover plus some great videos to also go by. If I had a choice without the progressive to start I was leaning toward the turret myself. Oh and I still plan on getting a single stage press soon as there are a few things it does really well and worth the money for.
There is some really informative reloading videos on Youtube, I bought the Lee Classic Turret Press Kit.
Randy, you are correct with the choice of the Classic and if I were doing it again I would have selected that design. I am not concerned with the durability of the cast aluminum(?) base over the cast iron of the classic or the long term usage of the ram or linkage. The primer recovery where the Deluxe catches them inside of the base is a PITA and I still have yet to drill out my bench to let them escape below.I own, use and gladly recommend the Lee CLASSIC (not Deluxe) model 4-hole turret.
I agree with your thought process!
Yep...I've yet to do that as I am sometimes very lazy, but my main excuse for that bit of procrastination is that I am looking for a small plastic tub with metal brackets which will secure it to the bottom of the bench and allow the bin to slide out to empty the primers. I think that if it's right under the press that there's a better chance they will all be caught in the bin. For now I just use my wet/dry vac with the hepa filter to pull them out of the base when it gets filled.To correct the problem with the spent primers dropping below the press base, i simply drilled 2 large holes under the press, placed a clear plastic rubbermade bin under the press and can likely pop out about a million primers before it needs to be emptied, although due to weight i empty it every say couple thousand or so primers in it.
