    Ive recently started reloading for my AR-15, making up some 75 grain Hornady V-max 5.56 loads. They have performed great so far but its a little slow with the Lee Challenger press Ive been using.

    I was wondering if anyone had any experience with the Lee pogressive kit for this round.

    If so, please tell me your likes and dis-likes, as Ive thought about sinking some money into this and would like to get the most bang for my buck.

    Thanks.

    "...the Lee pogressive kit"

    Well, they make at least two. You interested in both or just one?

    The kit Ive been looking at is the Lee Pro 1000 Progressive Press kit for .223 Its about $170.00 bucks and I was wondering if its worth the money.

    Well, I don't have one but it's been on the market a long time so some folks must think so.
