LEE CLASSIC TURRET PRESS STEEL LINKAGE/IRON BASE
This press has all the features of the award-winning Turret Press with quality touches that make this the finest, most convenient press to own. The Classic Turret features the solid steel linkage of the Lee Classic Cast. Your first stroke of the hardwood gripped lever will convince you this is one, solid silky smooth press! The sturdy iron base shows its Classic Cast roots.
The long stroke allows rifle cases over three inches long to be loaded using the automatic index. Deactivate the Auto-Index and cases as long as the monster 50 BMG can be loaded. The rigid cast iron frame supports the ram with over 12 square inches of area. The industry's largest ram is drilled completely through to dispense primers in an attached clear PVC tube. Every primer is caught--guaranteed.
Instant change turrets are the same as the famous Lee Turret Press. The Classic Turret uses the new Lee Lever Primer System (LPS) and the Lee Safety Prime tool makes priming on the press a delight.

As others have said here. I shied away from it for a long time. This cast iron frame model with all steel linkage is built like a tank. The versatility is there for virtually any loading method. I polished the index rod with a scotch-bright pad and keep the turret ring lubed with a very light coat of Pro-Shot Gold gun grease applied with an artists brush. Cycles like glass. Currently using it to load 9mm with an Auto-Disk measure. The quick change turrets and non-indexing option just adds to the versatility of this wonderful, reasonably priced press. Thank you Lee!
Why did I wait so long?

I finally upgraded from my single-stage press to this baby, and what a difference. Once you have your dies setup you're good to go. Even if you manually dump your powder, it's waaay faster to produce a finished round. Add Lee's Auto Drum powder measure and Safety Prime system and you are gold.
The right choice

I`ve been tossing around upgrading from a single stage press for some time and after quite a bit of research settled on the Classic Turret. For the price and features I made the right choice. I bought extra turrets and changing calibers takes seconds. I can`t believe how presicion,solid and smooth this press is compared to more expensive models and the turret auto indexes perfectly and locks solid with no effort. I really like how easy it is to still use it as a single stage when working up a load but not have to change dies, just simply rotate the turret by hand. I`m very very happy with my new press.

I have had the pleasure of owning this awesome reloading press I just can't stress enough that the Lee Classic Turret is the best turret press on the market I just got mine in yesterday. i have been waiting for almost five months, believe me its worth the waiting. The Lee Classic Turret has so many features that come standard. it makes no sense to even spend a penny more for any other press made on the market. this press has a massive cast iron base and once you mount it down, the fun can begin. Look no further the Lee Classic is the best way to go
Sped things up significantly

After starting to shoot action pistol sports I decided to upgrade from a single stage press to the Lee Classic Turret Press. Outstanding decision. Coupled with the Safety Prime, but still using a bench-mounted Lee Perfect Powder Measure and a scale to weigh each load I can do 50 each 9mm rounds in just under 20 minutes. I had a little problem setting up the Safety Prime, but Lee's Technical Help was friendly and got me in the right direction. Highly recommended.

I've used a single stage for years and bought a Classic Turret last year.This is one great press.Solid as a rock. I originally bought it for reloading pistol ammo but like it so well I use it for almost everything. The spent primer system doesn't miss either.
