"The lack of adjustability, the small powder and shot hoppers, the light construction utilizing a lot of zinc and plastic just doesn't add up to a quality product - if it did, MEC would not be in business ...."
Why should one care about the use of zinc and plastic if the zinc and plastic last?
I did some rough figuring last night, and I'm pretty sure that my Father and I loaded around 22,000 rounds of 12 gauge ammo through ours.
Zero zinc failures, zero plastic failures, zero crimp issues (tut tut, your crimp needs to be 0.000000000752 inches deeper, my good man!) and, I'm not 100% sure, but I THINK all that was done with the original wad guide...
I'm thinking seriously about starting to reload for 20 gauge. If I do, it's going to be another Lee Load All.
