    WTB: Lee Press

    As per title, WTB Lee press.

    Just started hand loading and am currently using the Lee Classic whack-a-mole style system which as primitive as it is, is working for me at the moment. However i have a bit of brass now that will not chamber and would like to resize so needing a press. I have the ability to borrow some dies so just needing a press to get me going further. Obviously looking to spend as little as possible so if anyone has a spare one lying around that they wouldn't mind a little bit of cash from then i'm your man! ;-)

    Cheers, .e.

    Dunno. Don't have any lee dies. Assume they're the standard thread? I have a few Lyman bits n pieces, best gear I own.

    all standard rifle calibre dies fit all the commercially produced presses. Stay away from the lightweight aluminium Lee "C" presses - they break if you try anything beyond very basic , small calibre loading . That one pictured on trade me will be great for you .

    Just hit buy now on that lee kit and sell the dies and components to fund the dies you need. Bloody bargain. I could be interested in the dies.
