Have any quick opinions on these. I'm just starting out and this is what Dad used back in the 60's. What's the most beginner friendly that I can grow with? I know this has been asked 1000+ times.

I have a Lyman Caliper that is a hunk of junk, but everything else I've had from them has been GTG.

Everything that I have used from Lyman has done it's job pretty good. If I had to give an opinion on them it would be "Middleclass". Not too expensive and decent quality ..... they would be considered in the same class as Lee for me.

Me too. I'm not impressed by the Lyman stuff I've seen, but they do work. For a little more money, I always recommend RCBS for single stage presses. For a lot more money I prefer Dillon. As with nearly everything in life, "you get what you pay for."


Another +1 for me. Lyman leaves me wanting more, but it does get the job done. For the price, they're not that bad really. I got started with reloading not too long ago with a Lyman kit. It's what I use now until I can afford a Dillon.

Good deal, thanks for the replies. Found a RCBS kit locally that I'll go check out.

I have a T-Mag that I purchased in 1989. Been boxed since 1995, just broke it out and mounted it on a bench I biult last week. Punching out .223 rounds.
