    Lee Delux 4 hole turrent

    Salute All
    Ok I finally got my reloading bench built and im putting the lee Turrent together i got last November instructions are grey at best but im figuring it out , my question is the only piece I cant figure what its for is a small dime size square piece of black plastic that came wrapped with the Primer Arm assemblies, its not in parts picture doesnt mention in instructions was going to call Lee Company Monday but thought id ask one of you guys who may use the same kit

    That is the most important part if you want the turret to progress. On top of the ram is a piece of black plastic with a screw (auto index clamp) in it.

    Undo the screw and pop the "little black piece" aka "square ratchet"
    http://www.leeprecision.com/graphics/parts/3567.jpg

    Now if you are loading pistol or 223 slide the Square Index rod in the the top of the auto index clamp, then place the turret into the top of the press and wiggle it till it all fits. To adjust the indexing follow the instructions with the press or visit Lee's website.

    If you are loading larger rifle rds, don't use the square ratchet rod as it will index to soon and jam the case on the die.

    Hi Colin
    Thanks and the piece im talking about is the square ratchet could it be a spare since the Indexing clamp was already installed and it seems to rotate the plate fine?

    The part list has 2 of them per kit, so it is a spare, they do wear out after a while and i replace mine about every 6-8 months, they cost 50cents. Enjoy it they are a great press and I load 7.62, 303, 45acp, 455, 223 and 357Sig on mine. Pistol rds you can make about 150 an hour, rifle is about 50 an hour.

    Had the same question about the small square plastic piece that came with my Classic Turret.

    Yeah the instructions leave much to be desired.
    I found THIS SITE to be very helpful when I set up my Lee Turret press.

    Plastic Square

    Yup, me too. They should tell you on the box that its extra! Not that we couldn't figure it out, but our minds certainly were on higher thoughts such as powder amounts and bullet weights. Right?
    I have been using my Lee 4 Hole for about two years and it is just great. One bit of advice. The best way to reload properly is with NO DISTRACTIONS!!!! I hope you enjoy reloading very much.

    Mar 9:23 Jesus said to him, "If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes."

    With that scripture I go forward steady by jerks.

    Also pray for our President; Psalm 109:8

    I would get some more of those pieces, as they will wear out at the just when you need them most. I usually keep 4-5 around (on a nail - so I can find them)

    That is a great press, I have been using one for a long time. I use the auto index for .223, .44 and .45 the rifle calibers need the index rod taken out. Very versatile. It may even be too versatile... new caliber setups can be had for around 40 bucks each (30 for die set and 10 for extra turret ring) makes reloading multiple calibers more affordable.
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
