Welcome from another Michigander.

I can't help you with 204 loads, but post a question in the handloading forum and someone will likely jump in and give you a starting point.

Which Lee press did you get? Don't feel like you have to upgrade it, as some of the Lee presses are great.

AJ

Both, drop me a PM with your email and I'll buy you a cup of coffee next time I'm down near Jackson. Or you can buy me one if you get up near Lapeer.

ps: The challenger will work good for seating bullets, as you can setup your seater and just leave it. It will work for everything until you decide you 'need' something else. In my opinion, just about any press can be used as a seating station if you use really good dies (competition seater style with the sliding bushing). Use your best (strongest/straightest) press for resizing.
