Greetings from overseas

Postby snaginn » 10 Jun 2018 17

Hello, all!
I live in Iceland. I have several Classic Lee Loaders in various calibers besides owning an MRC Improved Loader by Mequon (a Lee derivative I believe) and a Lee Target Model Zero Error. I have never had any use for threaded dies and presses, but then I do not load a lot, just enough for my hunting needs. I started handloading in 1970 using a set of Sako straight dies in .243W. Later on I used Wilson Hand Dies and then graduated to Lee Loaders.

Welcome to THE Lee friendly site. I'd be no help when it come to Lee loaders. Got a couple but really only played with them to see how they worked. I literally grew up using a single stage thus never wanted to use them just because I'm an 72 year old ornery cuss set in old routines. But if there is a site that knows and loves these Loaders you smack dab in the middle of it!

Thank you, Daboone!
Like you I am 72 and set in my ways.
I just posted a query here and I am pretty sure someone here will be able to help!

Welcome to the forum. I have a bunch of Lee Loaders, started with them, but never own the Zero Error Target kits.

Thanks, guys!

As I understand it those are fairly sought after, particularly the .308W. I really do like the inside neck reaming feature. Bullet seating pressure is so uniform.
This is the type of kit I started with, in .243W:
