I don't like Lee presses, but I LOVE Lee dies. I expect a set for .357 sig should run around $30. Unless you have the Dillon press that requires the use of the Dillon dies (the AT?), you can use any standard size dies in a Dillon press. You might have to fit the locking rings on the bottom of the tool head instead of the top, but they'll work.ichy_trigger said:You wont want to reload with a single stage press for very long if your planning on shooting alot of ammo. I bought a Dillon to reload .45 and .357 but found that .357 Dillon dies cost $108.00!!! Now im going to buy a .40 gun to target shoot and save my .357 for defense.
I dont know if you will find a progressive reloader setup for $250.00 complete.
You will need a good powder scale, loading manuals, calipers, press, dies, etc...
Check out Lee reloading products, they are relatively inexpensive.
Rather than waiting for one of those "splendid" Lee progressives to arrive, just wake every morning for a week and poke yourself in the eye with a sharp stick.Buy a Lee Pro 1000 Progressive for the .40cal or a Loadmaster, and swap out the dies with .357sig. Setup cost=less than 250.
Not unless you are extremely patient & mechanically inclined, the Lee progressives are crap IMO. The Lee Classic Turret is a better machine, a bit more than $250 for the press, dies, scale & powder measure w/ some small access, but well worth it. Don't go cheap IMO, good equip last forever. I have been reloading for 35yrs now, still have my first single stage press.Buy a Lee Pro 1000 Progressive for the .40cal or a Loadmaster, and swap out the dies with .357sig. Setup cost=less than 250.
