    I've been loving my lee classic cast that I purchased after selling the summit. I feel like it has greater inherent precision, leverage, and strength over the summit. Not to mention best primer handling ever. Only thing I don't like is the shell holder can pop out the right side so if I'm pushing in a stubborn case, it will remove the shell holder. I wish it was reversed so that it came out the left, but that would change the primer arms setup. I may mod it anyway, because I don't think I'll use the priming system much anyway

    Paddy, if you don't plan on priming on the press just turn the top part of the ram, that way you can insert the shell holder from either side.

    The only split pin I have in my Lee CC is the one in the top of the ram for the primer arm. The tube doesnt come off unless you pull on it due to the bottom of the ram shaft being a bit bigger than the tube opening. Having the ability to change from left to right handed and adjusting the lever control is what sold me on it. Its a very good press for the money.

    I second this. Or get an RCBS and put the Hornady bushings in it. I have a LnL SS, its a decent press as well.

    I am looking at buying an Iron Press, primarily for primer handling reasons because I load 308 on my SS.

    That's what my addendum to the Summit Instructions says...
