The Lee hand Press

Post by Pitchy » Sat Feb 02, 2013 2:57 pm

Bought one the other day and built a box for it and other stuff. Makes for a load anywhere set-up that is pretty handy.
I really like it and have been loading 45-70`s with it with no effort.
The pictures show a beam scale in the box but today i ordered a Hornady digital scale which will lay flat and fit in the box better.
I also built a powder box and hung that huge padlock i made on it.

Have used one of these to decap cases when shooting black powder silhouette (BPCRS) before dropping cases in cleaning solution to make cleaning easier and prevent corosion. Finished cleaning after shoot was over upon returning home. Handy tool although never used one for reloading.
Mighty nice looking and handy box you have constructed there Pitchy.

Thanks, i`m impressed how well it works and am real happy with it. I have a turret press also but this is handy and i`m liking the hand primmer also.
I read some reviews on the Hornady 1500 digital scale after i ordered it and are a little concerned.
Most the negitive replies were people that were loading very light loads.
Anyone have opinions about that scale ?

Pitchy,
I really like the new MTM digital scale, fits in a shirt pocket. And it will handle 750 grains.
A lot less expensive than the RCBS -- Lyman stuff. 8-)
