Default Lee Load All 2 reloading press. Need imput for possible purchase

I know Lee has a very good reputation for reloading materials/presses. Has anyone had any experience with the Lee Load All 2? It appears to be a great buy and has inexpensive options for loading both 12 and 20 gauge shells. Would seem to fit my purpose of wanting to load 50-100 shells per week. I am not looking for a progressive loader at this time, and I am SUPER broke right now, so a full set up for under $100 is feasible.

Any warnings or words of wisdom before I go ahead and buy one?

Thank you,
-rich

I have one and it works quite nicely. It is pretty slow, but it works fine for the volume I shoot. It helps if you "single stage" your hulls to prepare them before you reload. I size, deprime, and prime all my hulls in one sitting. Then I reload the primed hulls when I need them.

It is cheaper at Grafs or Cabelas, btw.
$52 + $6 shipping

It's a good, inexpensive press for 12ga, 16ga, and 20ga. I wish Lee would make a .410 adaptor, though, given the Taurus Judge's popularity. They told me they keep getting requests for that, but "it's a manufacturing issue" is the excuse for not doing it.

You can save some money by using Promo powder, claybuster wads (winchester equiv.), cheddite primers, and reclaimed shot.

Pick your components using the load data, then buy them. If you do it the other way around, you'll probably end up with a bunch of stuff you can't use. Shotshell components are pretty picky and you're not supposed to play around with the recipes.

Most powder manufacturers have free load data online and they'll even send you a paper copy.
