You observation is correct, I would say 90%+ of shooters just don;t need a progressive of any kind. The Lee CT is not a bad piece of gear. The priming system is still suspect & I would try to adapt another powder measure or at least get the adjustable Lee. Fixed powder measures are very safe & reliable but give you very little flexability in your loads. Something you really need w/ fast powders where yo ucan go from mild to wild in as little as 0.4gr.
