With ammunition prices and availability the way they are these days, it makes sense to start reloading your own ammunition. The brass cartridge case is the most expensive ammunition component to produce, so with a steady supply of brass, you can begin reloading with a quality press. This review will look at the Lee Precision Load Master in 223 Remington.
Lee Precision is one of the oldest names in ammunition reloading, and the Lee Precision Load Master 223 Remington Reloading Rifle Kit represents a lot of value for the money.
|The kit is convenient because it has all the components you need to get started — the dies, shell plate, case activated powder measure, automatic case feeder, etc. The relatively low cost of the Lee Load Master makes it easy for someone who reloads for different calibers regularly to set up additional presses and have each one dedicated to a single caliber without having to change dies or recalibrate a single press every time they want to change calibers. It’s also an easy setup process, simple to switch from 5.56 to .300 with the five hole turret, and produces bullets in the blink of an eye—the casing loader words for a wide range of case sizes.||Some of the Lee Load Master parts are made from plastic and can be prone to breakage. In this review of the Lee Load Master, I recommend it for people new to reloading because assembly and setup can be challenging, but that is the world of reloading. Everything is a challenge in the beginning, and setting up a press like a Load Master will ensure that the first time hand loader will know what each stage of the press is accomplishing and why each step is important. You may also want to hand tighten the components to ensure they are snug.|
The instructions included with the Lee Load Master are not the best in the world, but watching some of Lee’s instructional videos is recommended to understand better how to set up and use the press. Many have been able to put the press together just fine because it comes with pictures.
