    Has any one tried the newer cast iron Lee press, and what is you opinion.

    If you mean the Lee Classic Cast and Classic Turret presses they aren't exactly "new" anymore, they've been around several years now.

    I don't own one but used a friend's Classic Cast just to try it sometime back; if I ever need to replace my old Rock Chucker 2 that's what I'll get. Probably would have been what I got if the CC had been available at the time. I think the Lee is the better press; it sure handles spent primers much better and I really like the adjustable lever system too.

    I have a lee classic cast that I use for all my decapping/sizing.... Had it for some time now and have never had a problem with it.... Very strongly built......
