I Do not have one, but I have a couple friends who do and they really like it. I have a Challenger and a Reloader, and really love them.

One press that I USED to like is the Lee Pro 10000 Progressive. One day it just stopped working reliably, and I was spending more time chasing down problems than loading. That's when I bought the Reloader. Things go a little slower, but I find the activity fun and relaxing, so I don't mind.

It's on it's way along with some dies and a reloading manual!

I've had both the 3 and 4 hole turret presses and both worked fine. The three hole set-up uses aluminum ratchet parts and the four hole uses some plastic. I think the concept is that if something breaks it is a 10 cent plastic piece that is easy enough to replace. I think I'm on my second or third square ratchet piece (not sure of the technical name) in about eight years. Only problems I ever have is occasionally the turret wont turn far enough to index the next station and the Lee Auto Disk powder measure it came with leaks a bit too much for my taste. The Pro Auto Disk is much better for Accurate #5 and #7 at least.

Good know. School started this week and there just no time to play around with it yet but I hope yo do some loading soon.
