    A (4) Die Turret & Red LEE round storage box is 'around' the same $20 price point. The Round Die storage box is an option. Going from a $12-13 Turret to a $32 set of bushings is a little harsh.

    I have my fingers crossed that LEE considered this and is ramping up production so price comes down. They have been adding it to their Presses for a while so they have to be selling more. So we could see them being sold in larger bundle packs for people to convert over.

    ...or make a conversion top plate/press head that accepts the "old" 4 die Turret or something similar
    but the bolt circle of the dies would need to be the same.

    Thanks. I guess I couldn't see much in the pic...

    Both Titan and Fsreloading have them for $8 something a pair...so a set of 4 bushings would be less than $20.

    That math is wrong. I just checked three places for a 2 pack of the bushings. Midway has them on clearance right now for 6.50 and Amazon has them regular price at 10 bucks for a two pack. Probably buy them locally somewhere (Sportsmans) for about the same 10 buck price. Wonder what the shell plates are going to run.

    Well it looks like the bushings are falling in price !!!! They are real close to a 4 hole turret price on Midway. I wonder why Midway has them on Clearance ? I suspect they made a change for the new press.

    There is a slight change to the newer 4 hole turrets. They are reverse compatible. I saw a video awhile back on them and it sorta suggested LEE had a 4 Hole turret press in the works.

    Curious about priming. That's always the clincher for me.

    They will use the Safety Prime according to an email they sent out.

    I won't judge until I see a video of it in action. Right now it's still all too sketchy.
