Anyone use a lee loader? I've tried most of them at one point or another and they all work. Just curious what others think about them

Don't know a thing about them, but certainly knew enough guys who had them back when I was doing nothing but reloading for my shooting needs.
I started loading on one back in the '70s. like everything else from the '70s I still have it.
that is except for the "ex". she stayed back in the '70s.
but the facts on the Lee Loader is that the target model can produce target quality ammo better than a quality single station press.
high quality ammo cheap is a thing to be proud of.

I have a single stage, only use it for handgun because I don't think it would last very long beating it up with rifle rounds. It's not built that tough.

Lee is inexpensive and somewhat accurate. It is not know for consistancy. the presses are adequate and the other items , scales, powder drops dies are all ok as well. Lee is not known for nor are they "accurate to a tweak" nor are Lees consistant over time IMHO. Lee's idosycracies can be learned and tolerated and are by many reloaders. I have friends who own and exclusively load with their lee equipment and they are very haappy with the bullets they make. That is the end game to be happy with the bullets you make.
I like equipment that is more precise, because thats how I am. I have nothing against Lee equipment I don't own any, however when I became interested I used plenty of it to fimilirize myself with the process. At that time instead of saying this is good enough I will go get me some Lee stuff. I said there has to be a way to be a little more prcisee and consistantly accurate. I went with green equipment instead and am now looking at Hornaday lock and load progressive. Lee is good and many many guys I know shoot thousands of bullets produced on their Lees. Some of those guys are way better shooters then I am. For a small amount of money one can get into loading and making alot of bullets with Lee equipment.
