I plan on loading 9 millimeter . Can you load a shell multiple times ? Does everybody clean their cases ? in what instance would you not use a case do to condition ?
Pretty much me as well.I don't like loading 9mm. The case is tapered and I find that it takes more effort than loading any of the other calibers I load for.
2) Yes - you can load a case many many times
3) Yes - clean to keep dies in tip top shape and because I like shiny and clean brass.
4) Don't load anything that doesn't look right or seem right. No sense trusting a several hundred dollar gun to a few cent piece of questionable brass. All my bad brass goes to the recycler.
The Lee Turrets (the Deluxe and the Classic) are excellent presses for your purposes unless you need more than 100-150 rounds per hour. The Classic Turret is superior to the Deluxe Turret, but they operate in exactly the same way and for the 9mm you will be well served by either.Thanks for answering all my questions. I've neen researching the most cost affective way to start loading and (of course) ended up with a Lee product. I have ordered a deluxe 4 hole turret press (kit) that comes with most of what you need to get things started . In addition, I also ordered the auto disc riser. The deluxe pistol 9mm 4 die set and a Tp safety prime up (kit) . Other than the powder ,primers and bullets I think I have everything to get started. Those of you familiar with Lee presses ,any suggestions would be appreciated. I'm a. Handy person and I'm not scared to tinker or tweak things. After all, i have no trouble breaking down and reassembling my Mark lll pistols. LOL

Really ?? I know the case is tapered , but takes more effort?
I have loaded thousands of 9MM don't think it's takes more effort then the 40cal or 45acp just the bullets are smaller for the 9mm.
Just asking ...
