Man my equipment is on the UPS truck and I am sitting here waiting on them like a little child about to open Christmas presents.

Well got her setup and running. The Safety Primer System takes a good getting use to. I'm averaging around 110rnds/hr right now as the priming system will drop the primers if not fully inserted into prime ram. So I rate her 4.5 out of 5 stars. .5 because after I prime the case I have to manually turn the turret back to align everything back up(not hard or a pain) and then the learning curve for the priming system.

I do love it though.

For the Lee Classic Turret, Pro Auto Disk Charger, Powder Riser, Safety Primer system, Classic Turret Safety Primer BRACKET the cost was exactly $198.90 with shipping.

My goal is to have a COMPLETE setup for EACH caliber(minus sizing/decapping die as I trim all my rifle cases). For a caliber setup to allow quick and zero adjustments or swap overs comes to $63.00 which is great compared to other presses. My brass cleaning station has my single stage press that will house my rifle decapping/sizing dies.

Excuse the mess currently working on setting up my brass cleaning station(the entire other desk)

You shouldn't have to line it back up after priming.

It sounds like your auto-indexing rod is slightly out of alignment. You just need a couple of wrenches to turn it ever so slightly.

I read that in the instructions as I knew something wasn't right from ALL the videos I watched. 4.5 is still a strong rating for this press. Probably will end up giving it a 5 star review on MidwayUSA as with any new piece of equipment you always have that slight learning curve.

It was pull out of box ready to start reloading after I mounted it. I'm getting the hang of the priming system now. I dropped ONE this time because I didn't push down to make sure it was seated.
