I have been reloading on my Lee 35th anniv reloading kit for ~4months now. I have only loaded straight walled cases (.45 ACP and 9mm Luger), but it has been VERY reliable. I only paid $67 through midway shipped. Since I have started reloading, I have began to shoot ALOT more, and have moved one step up to a Lee Turret Press for more throughput. I will keep my Challenger press for experimenting with loads and if I ever start loading for rifle calibers. I think you will be pleasantly surprised with how well it works (considering the ridiculously low price). Good luck.
