A long time ago I had a Lee Loader for 357 Mag. with which I loaded rounds for my 357. It was the only tools I had to load that round.
After acquiring more conventional tools, sold it, BUT I bought another one at a Gunshow, a pretty recently, and tried it out and it worked fine.
Then later, at another Gunshow, I purchased a Lee loader for 30-06, and I don't even own a 30-06.
Tonight, I ordered a Lee Loader for 7mm Rem. Mag. It is one of the few cartridges they still make Lee loaders for.
IME, the Lee Loaders are the simplest tools there are for handloading. All you need are the tools, a plastic hammer, and a hard surface. Granted, you would also need some gauges, chamfering tools, a PP cleaner, but it should make for a very small package.
IME, the 7mm RM is a perfect match for Lee Loader. BECAUSE the 7 mag has such a short neck. I load it now using a Neck Only sizing die and I don't even hafta lube the necks. I do however, brush out the inside necks, to remove the carbon.
My plan is to use the 7 Mag. Lee Loader for load development at the range.
Do you think it will work OK, or is it too primitive for that?
