Lee Turret selection and setup help

8863 Views 88 Replies 22 Participants Last post by  olgutshotwilly
So I have decided to get a lee turret. What do I need to get with it. Which lee turret should I get? I figure a 4 hole turret. Set of dies. But what extra stuff should I get? Case feeder? Which powder measure, which primer system, etc. Just want to know what stuff is worth getting and what is superfluous.

You want the CLASSIC turret IMHO, not the Deluxe. A very complete setup is sold as a kit for about $200. Just add calipers, dies and components. The Pro Auto disk dispenser works great as does the Lee on press priming system.. I added a $30 digital scale to help my tired old eyeballs. A reloading manual or two would complete the list of 'must haves' if you are reloading pistol.

A tumbler and media is nice to clean range brass. A Wislon case Gage for each caiber is also a plus. On My Classic turret I have a separate turret setup with dies for each of the 4 calibers I reload. Lee stuff is very affordable making this an easy process.

Be sure to check out the great Lee self-help videos plus youtube:

Classic offers a more robust casting of steel vs aluminum, heavier duty lever and ram and the spent primer recovery system is superior. The spent primers go down a clear tube rather than just falling into a well in the base casting.
