Ditto. They are fine for starting out and for loading your hunting loads. I also have three and I use them for hunting loads and new load development.If you just shoot the odd local league and are only shooting 50 or 75 rounds per week they are all you need. They are just fine and are no faster or slower than any other single stage press. Also very good for teaching young people to reload.Positives: They are inexpensive, come with all the necessary bushings and load acceptable shells.
Negatives: The loading process on the Lee Loader is a little slow, mostly plastic parts and resale may be difficult but they should sell on Ebay.
Had them in 12, 16 and 20 at one time. Loaded +or- 200 week on the 12 with no problem and the 16/20 ga loaders were great for making up a few hunting loads as needed.
I have done that as the tray primer feeder is really not designed well..primers stick near the bottom and I have to take a pencil to advance them every 3-4 loads. This has been very frustrating.Get a lightly used MEC off eBay. They are a dime a dozen. You will be much happier.....
Ditch the primer feed. Put them in by hand.OP here...thank you for all of your input.
Biggest problem I am having so far is with the primer feed tray. Darn primers stick near the bottom and won't progress. I end of having to shake the feeder tray and that is a pain every few loads. These were not expensive so it is not a big deal.
