    Any of you every use the lee loader classics if so what did you think of them and would you recommend them? Besides powder, bullets, and primers what else do i need to load with one. I assume you still need a case trimmer.

    starting out, its not a bad way yo go. helps you l;earn the fundamentals.

    lee loader in desired caliber
    scale
    desired projectiles, powder, primers, brass
    caliper
    small rubber/wooden mallet

    case trimmer isn't exactly mandatory, but VERY helpful.

    I started off with a couple, one in 38/357 and one in 45ACP. You learn the basics plus they actually do load decent ammo.

    I got to where I needed higher volume that one round per minute. :biggrin:

    I have one in 270 that I inherited. If anyone needs it maybe we can work something out. I have never used it but had one years ago that I used to load black powder shotgun shells with. Worked pretty slick.
