    @Sako851 this kit doesnt use a press, it is a complete package that you would need to reload a .308win.
    The dies and decapper etc are operated manually with light taps of a hammer. Look up "using a Lee loader" on youtube for more info

    Keep me updated,gonna grab some nek week if need be.by the way I started with the same lee set and still take it to the range with me to tweak loads if need be,easy as once you get the hang of it,usually prep my cases at home tho.

    my 1st edition Nosler manual shows reloads done like this...the accuracy was better than the factory loads of the time...Ive shot goats with a mate with his .243 ran out of ammo.went home and banged a few out and carried on....absolute childsplay to use...all but idiot proof.

    They actually make very accurate loads once set up right. They only neck size the brass and bump the shoulders as much as you chose too so as good as a neck die and press set. The scales are a bonus as consistancy is key.
