    I like my Lee Classic Turret so much I bought another one.

    Is this normal??:)

    Well, you do have two hands to operate dual Turrets but synchronization might be a problem.

    Boom, well now I have two turrets and Lee Classic single stage, a Hornady LNL and a C/H, I may have to use my feet also:)
    I maybe going crazy.

    I have only been reloading for 3 years, but it has been exclusively on a classic turret. I love it. I typically load 500-1000 rounds a week and I cannot imagine a better machine for it. It is a good balance of speed and control.

    I don't load volumes that would require a progressive. The pace of the turret is just right.

    floydster, floydster, floydster, :banghead: read the instructions again. You're supposed to buy multiple turrets for one press, not multiple presses for one turret! :evil:

    LEE is a Great American company making the best deals on reloading equipment in America. It's a shame more guys won't try them based on their low prices and the bad mouthing they get from guys who probably have never even used them (except for maybe on old little C-style press). And..... Lee doesn;t charge for an insurance policy on their equipment.

    Good for you. Maybe you'll have three by this time next year(?) ((:)D)))

    I'm no doctor, but you may be suffering from O.C.T. Obsessive compulsive turret syndrome. :) I love mine too.

    They are nice. Get 2 more and use your feet. Good work out.

    Hahaha! :D

    I'd just get more turrets myself, like higgite said.

    Of course if I had separate summer/winter residences, I'd definitely buy another. I love my LCT over my XL 650 any day.

    On the other hand, it sure wouldn't hurt to have a replacement in case they get discontinued some day(Unlikely, it has to be a top seller for Lee). But the things don't wear out very easily, maybe if I was a young man. :p

    I may buy just another press to keep at the farm. That way all I have to take with me are dies, scale and components to work up loads.

    Yep, thats fact. I started reloading on one of the cheapo Lee, C style presses(25 dollar press). I loaded many thousands of rounds on it before stepping up to a Lee Turret press. I love my Lee Equipment. With the exception of a single Die, all my die sets are Lee. I have the auto primer, setup, and I use the Lee scale that everyone whines about day and night. It works perfectly.

    shhhh... you're gonna wake up the bashers.

    Probably not normal. I got rid of all my Lee presses except my hand press

    I could have written that too. My only other than Lee die is a Redding neck sizer for 300 Savage. And the little Lee scale cannot be beat (at least, not for accuracy). Some guys will say they hate them, but it's really just a matter of learning how to use that scale properly. It's a little fussier than others, but the payoff is in the accuracy. ((:)D)))

    I hear you, Splattergun, but I personally can't help it. Somebody has to wake them up! ((:)D)))

    Yes lee stuff seems really nice for the money. Hopefully I can pick up a few more lee stuff like their simple c style press. Hopefully components come back in stock and I have extra spending cash at the time lol.

    I'm not a big Lee fan but their products do have their uses. When someone asks me what press they should start with, my answer is always the same, Lee Classic Turret. It's affordable, it will allow you to learn slowly as a single stage, and when you have the process figured out it lets you produce good ammo at a fairly quick pace. There's always the possibility of "upgrading" in the future but they seem to be a good value from the start.

    Lee is good stuff----especially for what it costs.:) You will find in short order that no matter what color the press or accessories are that they will seem to multiply all around you as time goes by.:D I have 8 presses at present time of various colors and vintages and will NOT part with any of them.:cool: FWIW a backup is always a good plan.

    When speaking of upgrading if you own a Classic series (turret or single-stage) is to buy another Lee Classic, as Floydster did. Or....maybe buy a Forster Co-Ax. Other than that, you'll get less press for more money. Insurance costs money, so I don't blame the other makers for passing that on to their customers. When it comes to Lee Classic presses, a buyer has to get past the adage: "you get what you pay for".

    Or you'll get the same/better quality and more speed if you upgrade to a progressive. Another turret isn't a step forward, it's a side step.
