HA! I don't know how I missed that... So on Lee's site, that is about $40, and the cheapest Lee single stage press is about $60. Can you still get a die set for about $30? But if he already has the Lee Loader, then that's not a factor. If that's the case, components are high but ammo is also high. You can probably save a little money, the question is whether it's enough to be worth the effort.
