Lee Precision Breech Lock Hand Press Kit Review

For those who have not tried the procedure yet, reloading can be an intimidating pursuit. However, many have invested time and effort into learning how the whole system works just to acquire its benefits and have never looked back.

It is also an enjoyable pastime for lots of gun owners. However, like any other product, you have to make sure that you will get the right, high-quality model that will best fit your needs.

To begin your hunt for a good reloader press, read this review about the Lee Precision Breech Lock Hand Press Kit.

Features

  • Portable reloading press kit model
  • Breech lock hand press
  • Ram prime and powder funnel
  • Includes case lube with Lee Precision press kit
  • Breech lock quick-change bushing
  • Can an accommodate overall length of 3.65 inches

Advantages

The Breech Lock Hand Press Kit from Lee Precision is an affordable way to reload your ammo. This is the hand-press type which means you have to work with your hands a lot for the procedure.

Users are given the opportunity to reload their brass with similar bullets that are primed for use, like what you see from the likes of progressive reloading kits. However since everything has to be done manually, you have to take some time to accomplish this. If you do not mind the time it entails, then this product might be for you.

This hand-press model also gives users the ability to reload anywhere they go. This is a portable press kit so you can travel with it. Progressive type presses need their items to be installed on workbenches but this Breech Lock Hand Press model can be taken anywhere you go, anytime.

Whenever you need to reload your ammunition, the very first steps you have to undertake is to get rid of the used primers then resize it so it will return to its original form. Next, you have to replace them with new primers.

You have to be sure that you will acquire the appropriate side on while it is being laid flat beneath the shell of the bullet. The belling procedure meanwhile makes it a lot simpler for the ammo to be seated, which is the third stage in reloading. After the seating cycle, you then tackle powdering.

Filling the bullets with powder is a painstaking procedure so you have to be very careful when measuring them. Keep track of the recommended quantity so as to steer clear of any accidents that will get in the way of the procedure. As soon as you accomplish the whole deal of filling the bullets with powder, you can then seat the ammo and crimp the brass.

The whole setup is portable so it will work for gun owners who do not have so much space at home to work on progressive reloading presses. It has an ample amount of space for reloading up to 3.65 inches of long brass and it is strong but not heavy at 2.5 lbs. The product is also wholly manufactured in the United States.

The company dies can be mounted and replaced quickly and you do not even need additional tools for the job. The company supplies the product with comprehensive instructions and does a great job when it comes to explaining correct usage of the dies.

During the procedure, the unit performs well as soon as you get familiarized with its workings. Its design makes for excellent leverage too and you do not have to apply lots of force on it.

Then again, what makes the whole setup great is that it does not need mounting on a bench. You can load your bullets anywhere you please. It is affordable as well and comes with a handy design that’s great for travel.

Disadvantages

One negative of the Breech Lock Hand Press is that you have to purchase the dies individually. Manual reloading is the norm in each cycle and it does not even have a powder measure. As said earlier, everything has to be done the manual way.

Verdict

The Lee Precision Breech Lock Hand Press is suggested for entry-level reloaders and gun owners who want to carry one in the range in case they have to do some reloading.

It has great build quality, comes with an affordable price and is extremely functional. If you do not mind all that manual work, this is something you need to invest in especially if you travel and target shoot in different locations.

How To Use a Reloading Press

There are lots of reasons why you might want to learn how to reload old casings to make your own ammunition. For one thing, it simply saves you money.

For small-caliber rounds, like the .22, the savings probably won’t be enough to make it worth your while, but for larger handgun and rifle ammo you can save 20, 30, or even 50 percent of the cost of buying your cartridges new. After a while, that adds up to enough to cover the cost of the tools and the time.

In the meantime, you get to learn a useful skill and get well acquainted with your ammunition. In fact, you can even get better accuracy by loading your own cartridges, because you can adjust the load and the type of powder to best suit your firearm. That will be beyond the scope of this short tutorial, but I encourage you to look it up!

However, there is a more pressing reason to learn how to make your own cartridges: gun control regulations continue to make it more difficult to purchase ammunition. Reloading and reusing your own ammo saves you the legal hassle and the trouble of buying new and ensures you always have a ready stock when it’s time to head out to the range.

Kinds of Presses

The primary tool you’ll need to load your own ammunition is a reloading press. These tools use metal dies to swage, press, and form cartridge casings back into the shape you want, and also prime them, fill them with powder and bullets, and crimp them shut, ready to use.

There are three major types of reloading presses: the single-stage press, the turret press, and the progressive press. A simple hand-held or bench-mounted single-stage presswill do just fine if you only need a few rounds, but is tediously slow. You’ve got to put a new die or tool in to the press for each stage of the process.

Turret presses, like the Lee PrecisionClassic 4 Hole Turret Press, will hold all the dies you need to make a cartridge of a particular caliber on a rotating turret, allowing you to cycle through each step in turn. This will let you increase your output from 50-100 rounds per hour to over 200.

But if you want to go really fast, you’ll want a progressive press, which rotates several casings through the dies, performing multiple tasks simultaneously to produce one round with every pump of the handle. Since you’re reading this guide, you probably don’t need a progressive press, so we’ll focus on the other two.

Tools and Supplies

The most important thing you need for reloading specific cartridges is a reloading manual. These make sure that you know how much powder and what size dies to use for each caliber of ammunition you want to make.

Each ammunition manufacturer produces their own reloading manual, so it’s important to know you’ve got the right information. Too much or too little powder, in particular, can be quite dangerous.

Also, it’s important to make sure you have:

  • Powder, primers, and bullets of the right size
  • A powder scale to measure powder
  • A powder measure or powder trickler
  • Calipers to measure casing and cartridge sizes
  • A chamfer and deburring tool (for removing burrs)
  • A pair of safety goggles (in case of accidental primer detonation)
  • Case trimmer (for when casings are too long)
  • Case cleaner, like a tumbler or ultrasonic cleaner (used casings are dirty!)
  • Case lube (depending on the dies you use: check with the manufacturer)

Of course, the simplest way to get all the things you need is with a complete reloading beginner’s kit. Lee Precision sells complete kits to match most of their presses, as do their higher-end competitors, such as Redding, RCBS, and Hornady.

What to Do?

Once you’ve cleaned out your used cartridge casings, you’ll want to inspect them—cracks and other flaws are easier to see on clean casings—and then remove the primers and resize them.

There is a die for each of these tasks; if you have a single stage press, like the Hornady “Lock-N-Load” Iron Press, you’ll put the die in and perform each task on all the casings before changing the die and moving on to the next one.

If you have a turret press, like the Lee Classic 4-Hole, you’ll leave each casing in the press as you press one die after another down onto it. You’ll always need to use lube for these steps when reloading bottleneck casings, and sometimes also for straight ones (depending on what kind of die you use).

Next, trim the casings to the proper length using your case trimmer. This is necessary because casings tend to stretch over multiple uses.

If you trim, you will also need to chamfer and deburr, using the Chamfer and Deburring Tool to remove burrs from both the inside and outside of the case. Finally, if you have straight-wall cases, you’ll need to return to the press to expand them with the expander die.

The next stage is the actual loading process. This is the trickier bit: make sure to consult your press’s instructions and your reloading manual for detailed instructions on each step. First, you’ll need to seat a primer into each case. You can do this by hand with a hand primer or (depending on your press) in the press itself.

Once the case is primed, you can pour in the powder. On a turret press, you’ll probably have a powder measure attachment, but for the single-stage press you may have to weigh and pour the powder yourself.

Either way, you’ll want to check your manual to make sure you have the right amount! Next comes the bullet; you should have a die to seat it in and a die to crimp it shut (or a combination die that does both.)

That’s it! Your cartridge is ready to shoot. Load up, head out, and have some fun!

How Does a Progressive Reloading Press Work?

Most practiced shooters and reloaders will recommend that the beginner’s first reloading investment be a single-stage press.

That’s in part because a progressive press is downright complicated. Until you have a good grasp on how reloading works, you may find it difficult to figure out how to set it up and use it.

However, if you’re a first-time progressive press buyer, or if you’re a new reloader and you want to better understand what the difference between your options is and how they work, this article is a good place to start. Let’s demystify the machine, helping you understand how it works.

In a single-stage press, only one die is used for each stage of the process. As a result, you’ll have to work through all your casings at each step before changing the die to go on to the next.

A turret press rotates several dies around the turret, applying each in turn to the casing, but you can still only do one casing at a time. A progressive press, however, holds multiple stationary dies (and multiple rounds) in a circle, using a shellplate to move the rounds from one die to the next.

Each time you cycle the handle, the circle of rounds advances by one, each die does its particular task, and one completed round is ejected at from the press at the front of the line.

Depending on how fast you pump the handle and how smoothly your press is operating, you can make well over 1000 rounds per hour with the fastest presses (like Dillon’s Super 1050 B).

Because of this design, there will be a lot of different things happening simultaneously every time you cycle the press.

Some presses have more functionality than others, but there’s a good chance that every step loads up a new empty casing, removes an old primer from a casing, resizes a casing, puts a new primer in a casing, drops a precisely measured quantity of powder into a casing, bells a casing and seats a bullet into it, crimps a casing shut around a bullet, and ejects a completed round—all at different spots around the circular shellplate.

At any of these points, of course, something can go wrong, and if it does, you have to be careful to check each of the other rounds in the queue to see if they have been affected.

Stations

The more stations for dies that your press has, the more tasks it can do at once, and the quicker you’ll be able to go.

Some, like the 8-station presses, can even do extra things like trimming the length of the case or swaging (shaping) the primer pocket before seating the primer. The larger shellplates also give you more room to work with for reaching in and adjusting things.

However, if you decide to go with a smaller, lower-budget 3-station press, you can get a die that seats the bullet in the casing and crimps the casing around it in the same step, letting the press take care of all the basic parts of reloading the cartridge.

A four- or five-station press offers a good middle ground, letting you add a powder checking die to prevent under- or over-charged loads, or one of the other optional dies.

Attachments

Depending on how many automated attachments you have, the progressive press can run with more or less a minimum of work on manually positioning things. There are, of course, powder measures, but also automatic case feeders, and even priming systems.

Most presses, however, do require you at least to manually seat a primer and insert a bullet into a case at each crank of the handle. This makes a casefeeder a necessary attachment if you want to get the most speed out of your unit, because even the automatically-turning shellplate doesn’t get you far ahead if you also have to stop to insert a new casing at every step.

Of course, there is one caveat to all of this: the more moving parts you have, the more potential problems and repairs. Also, automated priming systems run the risk of accidental detonation: watch out!

Pros and Cons

The beauty of a progressive reloading press is that it lets you produce an enormous number of ammunition of the same kind in a very short time. An experienced reloader with a single-stage press can make about 100 rounds an hour. With a turret press, they might output about 200 or 300 an hour, while progressive presses can produce from 500 up. However, progressive presses require a lot of care in setup and attentive operation.

If one of the dies is not adjusted properly, the problem can have a magnified effect, affecting a number of rounds before you can catch and fix it. It can take a while (and a few wasted rounds) before you have the press running just right.

Also, it can be difficult to change the caliber, as you’ll likely have to take out and replace each die. Some companies, like Lee, avoid this problem by selling presses that are set up already in the factory for a particular load. Even with “rapid switch” designs, however, like Hornady’s “Lock-N-Load” die system, it can take a little while to get everything working smoothly again.

Conclusion

If you plan to use several different kinds of ammo or you won’t be doing a lot of volume, the progressive press is probably not for you. It can also be hard to get quite the same level of accuracy with so many tasks taking place at once.

While they are not necessarily the best for beginning or infrequent users, however, if you are a competition shooter or you want to be able to produce a whole garageful of ammo in a hurry, the progressive press is probably the best option for you. Especially if you are using large, expensive cartridges, you might find the savings significant enough to make one worth your while.

A Beginner’s Guide to Brands of Reloading Presses

If you’re in the market for tools for reloading your ammunition, you’ve probably realized that there are a lot of different companies out there!This page will introduce you to the different strengths of four of the top brands.

RCBS

For the beginner, one of the best-known basic single-stage presses is the RCBS Rock Chucker. It’s produced by one of the earliest manufacturers of reloading equipment. The initials stand for Rock Chuck Bullet Swage dies, which–designed for making varmint bullets for rock chucks—were the company’s first product.

Now, RCBS sells a full range of presses and kits for ammunition reloading under the Rock Chucker brand name, in addition to their Ammomaster, Partner, and Summit presses. These all are available for purchase as part of full reloading kits, which tend to be designed with the novice reloader in mind. They also include the Nosler reloading manual.

If you are a more experienced reloader or if you want to make more ammo, faster, you can check out their turret press, which can up your speed from 50 to around 200 rounds per hour. It offers the option of running in single-stage mode if you want more precision or are just getting started. But you can also run it in progressive mode, which enables faster output by minimizing steps.

If you want to go full auto, there’s also another option: the Pro Chucker, which is RCBS’s progressive press, will let you reload up to 600 rounds per hour. As with most progressive presses, however, setting it up and changing the caliber will require patience and attention to detail.

Lee

Lee’s signature bright red presses are easily recognizable. You’ll find that they are often the best value, especially for a beginner reloader.

For a budget buy, they can’t be beat. Lee sells a hand press as well as the full range of bench-mounted ones, including four single-stage and two turret presses as well as the Pro and Load-Master progressive presses.

The hand press is a good starting item for learning how the reloading process works, but it is very slow. If you’ll be doing a fair number of rounds, it’s worth going straight to the bench-mount single-stage or turret presses, which have an excellent reputation.

The award-winning Lee turret press, in particular, can produce up to 200 rounds per hour. The progressive presses, however, can be difficult to change caliber in; they also can be finicky and require some fine-tuning.Lee’s solution to this problem is to sell them factory-preset for a specific caliber.

While they predict that you should be able to change the caliber in as little as three minutes, they recommend that you use a turret press if you are going to be reloading a number of different caliber bullets. Either way, once you get them working the way you want them to, Lee’s progressive presses will keep churning out rounds at high speed for years.

Hornady

Hornady’s presses are marketed on superior quality, billing themselves as the ideal choice for making match-quality ammunition. They are certainly some of the most solidly constructed on the market, ensuring that they will not deform under pressure and that they will last a lifetime.

Hornady’s designs also tend to be very simple to use. Their Lock-N-Load adapters have been popular features for decades, enabling you to switch dies with just a quick quarter turn instead of having to screw them in and out every time.

Hornady’s Iron Press is one of their more notable products; it is a unique-looking reinvention of the basic O-style single-stage press with an unmistakable conical shape that makes for easier access to the “window” where the reloading action takes place.The automatic primer assembly has also received an upgrade, with better reliability and better protection against accidental primer detonation.

The highlight of Hornady’s lineup, though, is the five-station Lock-N-Load AP, one of the best progressive presses in the industry. It comes with a lot of options and special features, like individually adjustable, quick-change dies and an auto indexer. This press can easily put out over 500 rounds per hour.

Dillon

Dillon is a high-end press maker. They were the first company to offer a progressive press for home use, and they have kept their market share by producing some of the fastest presses out there.

Unlike some down-market options, for example, which only have 3 stations and thus can often force users to run cartridges back through if they want a final tapering crimp, Dillon’s basic progressive press comes with four; its top-of-the-line press, the Dillon Super 1050 B, has eight. This latter press is probably the fastest on the market, capable of producing well over a thousand rounds per hour. It’s certainly not a beginner’s press!

However, if you don’t plan to change calibers often and you want a whole barn full of bullets, the Dillon Super 1050 is absolutely the way to go. Dillon’s presses aim for both high volume and accuracy, making them ideal for the competition shooter.

However, single-stage presses are not Dillon’s strong suit. Their surprisingly small Square Deal B is billed as “compact,” and will only load handgun and carbine bullets, not rifle bullets. The company has banked on their versatile basic progressive press, the 550, for smaller-volume reloading. While it is a quality product, it doesn’t quite stand above its competitors like the full progressive presses.

Conclusion

Between these brands of presses, there is something for every shooter. For the beginner and the budget shopper as well as the occasional reloader, Lee’s presses are ideal.

If you want a slightly higher-end, more durable product, you should go for an RCBS or Hornady press (though the Lee turret press certainly gives these others a run for their money!) And if you are a high-volumeshooter with a lot of experience reloading, you probably want to go for Hornady or Dillon’s higher-end progressive models.

Whatever you buy, stay safe, shoot straight, and happy reloading!

The Lee Precision Load-Master 9MM LugerReloading Pistol Kit Review – The Kit for You

Many people in the world like shooting and guns, this involves hunting and competitive shooting too. Also, many gun-lovers enjoy when they reload their bullets by themselves because it benefits their budget and the quality of their bullets. It is much more affordable to reload your bullets and this also allows more shooting for the same price.
