Mind if I ask why you are replacing your non-Lee Dies with Lee? From my experience it's just the other way around. Don't get me wrong, Lee Dies are just fine for anyone's use.

The only auto index update I have seen @ midway & lee's site were to totally update your press to a 4 hole & auto index. While I wholeheartedly agree that both the 4 hole turrets & the progressive are on another level of flexibility, speed & convenience, any "upgrade" will ...
