Lee Load-Master Pistol
The Lee Precision Load Master Progressive Press in pistol calibers (shown in the image at right with optional Case Collator which is sold separately) is a great choice if you are an experienced reloader and shooting more than 500 rounds of a single hand-gun caliber per week. However, change over from from one cartridge to another can be involved. Since the press is performing several operations with each pull of the lever, operating it requires more attention to detail than does a turret press or single-stage press. If you are loading limited quantities of many different cartridges a Turret Press is probably a better choice.
If you have never reloaded before, a single-stage press kit like the Lee Precision 50th Anniversary Kit is a great way to get a basic reloading set up in one package.
The Load Master is available packaged with dies, shell plate and bullet feeder for the following pistol calibers:
|Caliber||Die Set||Shell Plate||Case Feeder||Primer Size|
|.32 S&W Long |
.32 H&R Magnum
|90624||4A||90659 with large slider||S|
|.38 Special |
|.40 S&W||90799||19S||90658 with small slider||S|
|.44 Special |
|.45 Colt |
The Lee Precision 3-Hole Turret and Lee Precision 4-Hole Turret will not fit the Load Master. Order Lee Precision #90079 5-Hole Turret (shown in the image at right) if you wish to have additional turrets pre-set up with dies for caliber quick change on your Lee Precision Load Master press.
