Evil looking things, aren't they. grin

I have one of those Lee loading tools for the .44mag but have never got around to trying it out. Anyone have experience with them here?
I also have three hundred Speer 240gn projectiles, powder and primers.
Just never got around to loading for the .44

My last press was progressive and made here, but I sold it thinking that I never would bother with reloading again.

Yep, that's the one, just the package is an older design on mine. I was told that they are handy for loading in the field.

You obviously need some other tool to work it as a press? Or just a small hammer and a hard surface.

Thanks, that's very informative, I guess my shoeing hammer is not a good option. laugh

I've dug out my Lee Loader and it seems a little different than the ones they sell today.
It includes a primer seater, and seems to incorporate the flaring tool in the body of the other dies?
Should be easy to work out though. Also a primer pocket cleaning tool.





I have 3 cans of H-4227 powder and the loading measure reflects that powder, so should be good to go.
I have about a hundred empty's laying around so that will be a good project for a rainy day like today. grin
