Lee Loader

Many years ago, I was give one of these in .300 Savage. My neighbor had a Savage 99 and was given the Lee as a Christmas present. I think he didn't trust reloads (or himself!), so I ended up with the Lee. The .300 I had is a Remington 722 and I like to neck size so I use that feature of the set. I've never completely loaded a cartridge with the Lee and am tempted to try it. It would certainly put the"hand" back in handloading! The load data included seems ultra conservative. Since the 99 is a rear locking action, I wonder how often a case could be loaded with the Lee before full length sizing would be needed.

Anybody here start with a Lee Loader?

    Yes I did back when I was in high school in the 70s. I still have them too. 30-06, 45-70, and 45 Colt. Loaded and shot many hundreds of rounds loaded with those loaders. As long as you are continually shooting those cases in the same rifle, you should never have to full length resize.

    I also have several that I purchased back in the 70's. Never had a problem with them. I still use the .410 on a regular basis. Lee makes a good product at a fair price.
