Miserable Lee die boxes, I need a screwdriver to open them

    This is my opinion of Lee dies and die boxes.

    That's by far the easiest way. Luckily, screwdrivers are plentiful around these parts.

    That's something I only have to do once, though. Break the box open, remove valuable contents, mount dies in turret plate, toss box and plastic scoop in trashcan.

    I am, however, still looking for the ideal storage solution for the die/plate assemblies and the associated shellholders. Something to hold them in such a way that the decapping pin won't get bent.

    Not in my experience, they have gone over and beyond the warranty requirements they specify and without me even asking for it, and with me even stating the failure was my fault.

    As far as the boxes go, golly guys take a small file and remove the tabs if you wish. After all we are reloaders and somewhat mechanically inclined.

    The bottom line is "Different strokes for different folks".

    Lee is known for having interesting solutions to reloading and they fill an economy priced segment of the market.

    Some folks like the features, some do not.
