if you are not sure you want to get into reloading and money is tight the lee kit is usable. i started with one. YOU WILL UPGRADE SHORTLY AFTER BUYING IT!

The scale is marginal at best. the powder measure is nasty to work with and the press is cheap.

It will get you started but you will soon get tired of the fuss and buy a real kit.


between those go with the rcbs if you have the extra money. OR go ahead and buy the dillon an be done with it.

Either will do the job in a basic way.

I do mainly precision rifle. For large quantities of handgun blasting ammo, a progressive press would be better.

If you enjoy reloading, you will upgrade with an electronic scale, better primer seater, better powder measure and add a case trimmer & case prep tools.

One potential deciding factor is the Lee hand priming tool. It is primer brand sensitive and has been known to kaboom with the wrong primers.

Go with the RCBS its a good starter kit. Then when your ready you can upgrade. RCBS's warranty is awesome! I have several dealings with them. And every time they either sent a new part, or replaced the press with the next one up.
