Does anyone have any experience with using a Lee turet press? Midwest Shooting Supply has them on sale for ~$118. I'm interested in something where I can load large qtys. of 454/45 LC and 44 mag/44 spl. Thoughts/alternatives?

I think he's actually talking about their standard turret press, not the Pro 1000.

From what I've heard, those who have their progressive presses (Pro 1000, and Master), they have been unhappy... however their single-stage and turret press are a great buy.

I'm planning on getting into reloading soon, and will be starting out on the Lee 4-Turret press. Plan on reloading mainly 7mm-.08 and .300 Win Mag, but will probably eventually stray into my other calibers as I get the hang of it

In general, turret presses are great for hangun and small case reloading. I would never use one for larger calibers, however. They never align the case to the die as well as an O press. They can't be built so they don't flex, somewhat, and will loosen up after time...even the very best ones. IMHO
