I'm glad to see Lee represented, especially the Classic Turret Press. I've just been singing it's praises to LL, and I think it is the best press for most people to start off with. Lee may not be the highest quality, but it's not the Lee of the 1980's either. Much of their stuff is well designed and available inexpensively.
I'm a gear snob, no doubt, but my Lee stuff makes .5 moa 308 loads for me just as well as my Redding Competition Micrometer dies and T-7. The redding stuff is really nice, high quality stuff, and slightly easier to dial in and return to, but once its set up right, the Lee stuff will definitely get 'er done. I use Lee a lot, as well as Redding, RCBS and Dillon. All have their pros and cons.
Has anyone tried the new Lee Pro drum measure? I just ordered one, and intend to try 300WM on the Turret Press with it.
