Re: u guys load 223 on classic turret?

I have loaded thousands of rounds of 223 on my classic turret. I didn't need any mods.

Re: Lee Classic Turret Press

I have had mine for 12 years now. It still works as good as the day I got it. Very easy to use. Very smooth. The only con I can think of is it has a small quirk with the priming system. Once you get it figured out it works flawless.

30-06 on classic turret

I don't load 30-06 I am trying to help somebody else. The rifle charging die specs say it will load up to 308. Is there a different charging die for 30-06 that I can't find or do you just short stroke the handle?

No, that isn't accurate. The FCD produces SAAMI-spec OD's on the cases. The die ID isn't any larger than the sizing die. Then I need to call Lee because all of mine are defective. After a case is size it won't fit easily back into the sizing die because of the spring back but they will fit through ...

Re: Do I need to get a 4 hole turrent press??

I think what he is planning on, is to remove the "guts" of the FCD, and push the cases straight through with the aid of a cast bullet sizing punch. I don't think that will work. The FCD is larger than the sizing die. If the sizing die doesn't fix glocked brass then I think he will need a ...

Works like a dream.


For the 3 hole and maybe the 4 hole turret's but for the 5 hole turret's they wont work.


The Lee turret presses don't have a five hole turret.

Re: Do I need to get a 4 hole turrent press??

Factory crimp die to get rid of bulged brass? If the brass is that badly bulged the crimp die won't do the trick, you need a die that you push the entire case through. don I think what he is planning on, is to remove the "guts" of the FCD, and push the cases straight through with the aid ...

I made these. It's not the cheapest way to go but it keeps them off the bench and works very good.

I couldn't agree more. I have been loading on a classic turret for around three years and love it. I'm glad you are having a good experience with your's.

You will be much happier with the classic cast turret. The advantages it has over the Deluxe are, taller and will load larger caliber rifle ammo, spent primer disposal through the ram into a tube and stays very clean, steel linkage instead of cast so it's much stronger, more leverage so it takes les...

There is no adjustment for the primer seating depth on the classic turret. You don't need it to be adjustable. On the up stroke of the handle when the ram reaches bottom just give the handle a firm push to fully seat the primer. I think the priming system on the CT is excellent. As far as tips I thi...

Turret holders

I wanted to get my turrets off the bench so I could free up some space. I took a turret to the hardware store and this is what I came up with. I wanted to share hoping it will help someone else.

I don't lube the index rod. I actually wipe it down to keep it clean and dry. I haven't lubed my classic turret in three years and it seems to get smoother every time I use it.
