Default Lee Hand Press

Anyone use one of these, as I've been thinking about getting one as they seem practical should one need to reload in the field. Is it as convenient as reloading at home on the bench... nope, but I'm also thinking of those sub zero days of freezing cold we have here in Montana and my shop is not heated, but also if I should need it out in the field

The Win 94 30-30 is the caliber I would be loading for.

I've never used one J_B, but years ago I used a Lyman Nutcracker hand tool. It was much cruder, but still made decent rifle and pistol ammo. I can't see why it wouldn't work fine.

I know people who use those. I've never had the desire to own one, but I suppose it could come in handy.

JB, I've never used the 30-30, but I have a 30-06, and 30 carbine. They work fine. I have a hard plastic headed hammer I used with mine. It's slow, but I liked to reload with mine. You won't shoot as much ammo using them.

Great little tools i have 2 and use them to make .223 to 30/30 and 8mm.
I bit harder my hand but saves going to the gun room to use the press.

Well I found a great deal on a Lee Loader $25 shipped to my door, for my .44 Magnum so I can load while out in the outdoors. I can carry everything in one large insulated ice chest in the back of the rig, and or work with it just about any place I want to

Just ordered this one, as it's too cold for reloading in the garage.
