I have never done shot shells, so I can’t help you there. But I have used a Lee loader. If you are dead flat broke and have lots and lots and lots of spare time, they will produce acceptable ammo. But you will be better off buying a single stage press. Either the Lee budget model or look for a second hand one, if money is an issue. They don’t wear out; I am still using the Pacific (now Hornady) press that I bought in 1972. Do some research before you start spending money; get the loading manuals from at least two different companies. Speer and Hornady are my favorites, but others are good also. Check your local library, they may have them available. Avoid cheap Chinese digital calipers, I have found them to be inconsistent.
