DS, the only issue I've ever had with my Hornady was that occasionally a round didn't want to eject smoothly. However newer versions have corrected this, I just haven't upgraded mine yet.

Thanks for the help guys. I think I'm gonna order the Lee classic turret press in the morning. Found one at Natchez for $91. Cant beat that price with a stick. May wind up getting the hornady eventually, but I think the Lee will beat the snot out of my older than dirt lyman right now. www.natchezss.com/prod...D=LEE90064

Good...That's the cast iron base and is better then the aluminum base.

That's what I paid for mine around 2 years ago. Had the three hole Lee turret with the aluminum base and it was starting to show wear in the ram to base.

When Lee finds a way to keep the turret from tipping and moving when you size a round then I may buy one. My brother bought one and it bent the .223 cases. I checked the travel of the turret under compression and the front of the turret moved close to .04". That's 4 hundreths of an inch - not .004.
My old Lyman has less than .001" movement in the turret when sizing a case. You can't just twist and remove the turret but you can remove the center cap and change the turrets. Then adjust the travel limit set screw and you are ready to make precision ammo.

The Lee is inexpensive and it has functioned well with pistol cases but he got a single stage press for his rifle ammo.
