    Iím surprised this thread didnít take off more than it did. Great advice regardless but surely thereís someone who figured something else by now! Iím glad I stumbled across this thread because I need to do some PM on my press and now I have an idea of things to pick up

Probably is a good idea to get extras. they stopped supporting the turret model I have. I've loaded 45 colt, 45 ACP, 9mm, 38, .223, 300 blackout, and .308 on mine. It was my first press. Clean and lube the ram, lube the inside of the turret ring/outside of turret head. If it doesn't rotate freely don't force it. I always took the rotation bar out for loading rifle and used it as a single stage. Since then I have a LM dedicated to 9mm, Pro1000 for 45acp, single stage for decapping/bullet pulling and a Lyman 8 hole turret for .338LM, .308 and blackout. I still use the lee turret for the other calibers. It has been a very reliable machine.

    I took the indexing rod out of my Lee turretpress. Nothing wrong with it other than I found that for me it is a little faster to manually index the turret. The only full stroke is the first one since I seat primers on the press. Other than that I only use enough downstroke to clear the case from the die before the next step.

    I've loaded thousands of rounds with a Lee turret press and I eventually preprimed any brass I was going to load with a RCBS auto primer first, after sizing with a single stage and then doing all the brass prep first; sizing, flash hole work and uniforming the primer pocket.

    Since I measure every load for my .223/5.56 loads for accuracy what I would do is have one for powder drop, next bullet set, another for powder drop and another for bullet set. I had two small funnels sitting in the powder drops. It took a little time to get each bullet set exactly the same but when done I would have something going on every pull and not have any empty stages since I do not crimp that round.

    You can see it on the right side of the picture.

    Used mine for the first time last night, punched out 20 rounds of 308, it's a little stiff but worked good
