"What about the reloader that does not have the mechanical skills to do the "Fix" "
Of course that does eliminate some people. The Lee PPM fix, if it's needed at all, is so simple that anyone with the mechanical skills to reload should easily be able to do it. The PPM isn't 'perfect' but neither are any others. Fact is, it's very good with any powder and just may be the very best with the coarse tubular powders most of us use for rifle loading.
