    "Lee Classic Loader" on you tube

    This looks simple and looks like I could do it
    Any one already using this, at 25ish it looks attractive.
    What else would I need
    Seems to be plenty of cheap digital scales on ebay (10 to 15)
    digital vernier again plenty on ebay
    What else would i require rather than a nice to have

    There are lots of Digital calipers (as they don't have a vernier scale on them they cannto really be Verniers can they ) however from some comments read soem of them are not very good with very short battery life. A friend in Alaska brought soem from Harbour Frieght and the battery lasts hours if left on yet I have a set of Mitoyo calipers that I brought in 1986 or so and they had one battery change so far but they do require a new one now the "B" symbol is showing.

    If you search the web for companies like Cromwell Tools you can get a decent set of Digital calipers for little money really but these are meant for workshop use and are not the mickey mouse ones often found on e-bay

    I have one set that is only used for reloading, one set for general/workshop use and anew set for finer work. The Digital ones don't last very long when in constant use unlike the olf traditional hardened stell verniers by the likes of Chesterman, Ramone, Moore & Wright and Starrett. I have seen thse digital ones worn out in a workshop in under two years with just normal use with heavy use like on a double shift system operating they can be useless in six months.

    I have no experience with digital scales and use beam ones myself.

    I use Lee Classic Loaders. I have them for every caliber I shoot, pretty much. In addition to the kit you'd need a Lee Trimmer stud and cutter and a deburring tool. I taught a fellow to load 30-06 on one of these two weeks ago. His groups at 50M (too much snow to set a target at 100M) were one hole. They are good stuff. Once you get into the flow of it you can produce quite a few cartidges in an hour. ~Muir

    Here is a link to using the Lee.

    It does look well easy, i've not put mine to the test yet other than removing the old primers.
