I've had a Lee turret press for about 25 or so years. It gets a fair amount of use and has held up pretty well. If I were starting all over agin though, I would go with a Dillon. Lee's presses are OK for the light stuff like the .38, which mine does well with. When I resize .44Mag cases, I can see the entire press flex and strain to an uncomfortable point. Next year I am going to buy a Dillon and regulate the Lee to just loading either .38 or 9mm. I do have 4 of the original Lee Loaders, the pound em in and out ones, and agree, they are a good way to get into reloading.
