I have a friend who is going to start loading for 243, 7mmRem Mag & 9.3x63. He wants a cheap press that he can leave his dies fixed in, all set up.
On paper the Lee 4 hole Classic Turret press looks like it may do the job for him, if he gets a couple of turrets for it.
Does anyone have practical experience using one & what are the positives & negatives of the design? - He doesn't want to use it as a progressive press - simply as a turret that can be manually indexed.
I've never had a good look at one of these presses & wonder how rigid & repeatable the indexing turret system really is. The base & toggle system is quite good I think - comments are invited.
I'm more in favour of a single stage press as these are most rigid by design, a possible variant would be one with "Breech Block" inserts. The trouble with this option is the cost of the adapters - my friend would need nine or ten to have one for each die that he will use.
