Yes both are lee presses. One is set for .223 and the other will be set for 7.62x.308 as soon as I get some powder and primers.

Really nice setup. Lee's equipment is what I use and so far its perfect, or as close as you can get. I like the second press idea. I want a cast iron single action press so I can reform cases that the neck - shoulder gets a little long and makes closing the bolt hard. This happens about the three load. I've been hunting for IMR 4350 for months on line and no where to be found. Our local gun shops don't handle 8 lb cans. Pounders are expensive enough.

Just found a local store yesterday that has 8lb. cans of 4350 for $200.00. Is that a good price?

That's a little high... but not overly so. 1# cans are going for $25-$30 apiece, but I picked up an 8# keg at Camp Perry for $160.
