As far as the PW Metallic II is concerned...

I think it is the best press ever made to load big rifle ammo on.

It is just sweet to load on, but it is $$$!!!
Yes, the Met 2 is a pleasure to use.
Mine is older, bought used. Had to fabricate the primer feed parts but its flawless. Great feel seating primers.
Sorry about the rotated pic and messy bench. Its way I roll....

Can someone explain to my why they chose a turret press over a progressive,???...and don't say cost.....cause that dog don't hunt.
I've only reloaded on the Lee turret press. I like the fact that once the dies have been adjusted to your liking you can yank out the complete turret assembly and put it away until the next time, however many months or years that may be.

I also bought my Lee as a kit, complete with the hard Maple storage box that doubles as a platform for the press. When I'm not loading (which is most of the time now) my press is on the shelf in a box not larger than a craftsman tool box. That set up has worked for me for 40 years.
