Reloading is a popular pastime here in the UK, allowing shooters to produce their own bespoke rifle, pistol and shotgun ammunition, whenever they need it. Lee Precision have been designing and manufacturing affordable equipment since 1958. These include die sets, shell holders, priming tools, case prep tools, casting equipment and even books. Combined with the correct die/tool, their Breech Lock Classic Cast Press can be used to de-prime, resize, trim, re-prime and seat a new bullet into an old case. It can be mounted onto a work bench using just three bolts and is manufactured from cast iron. It includes a durable, powder-coated finish and an all-steel linkage. The handle includes a wooden ball end for comfort, and can be easily attached either side of the press. Once in position it operates the 1 1/8” diameter, hollow ram, which also incorporates the Lee Lever Prime System, with both small and large arms. A plastic tube (supplied) can be attached to the base, helping to dispose of spent primers. The frame can accept standard 7/8x14 TPI dies from all the major manufacturers, and to make things faster it is compatible with Lee quickchange Breech Lock Bushings.
These can easily be removed by hand, with 1/6 turn. Overall, a strong, versatile and affordable machine, which will give years of valuable service.
