Hand reloading presses
« on: April 12, 2024, 03:28:20 PM »
I'm thinking about getting into reloading and I've seen some hand reloading presses, such has the Lee Breech Lock Hand Press. How to these compare to bench mounted presses as far as functionality goes? I don't picture myself doing a lot of reloading, just 20 or so at a time and a few low power loads, mostly for my 30-06. Thanks

Your press will be fine, it would be nice to hook up with someone local that is all set up and running to help you out.
The.      Highroad Forum      is a great reloading g forum.
Lots of knowledgeable people who can answer any questions you will have.
If you need any reloading supplies I probably have everything you will need.

A great starter press is the lee breechlock challenger. I use one to load very accurate ammo in numerous rifles. I even have a rockchucker and have never even mounted it as the lee  press has done everything I need. I would not go with the base model breechlock as I have that press and it seems a little flimsy .

I think I'll spurge a little and get the Lee Breechlock Challenger Kit.
