The LEE Breech Lock Challenger is a value-oriented press with a good list of features given its low cost. At $68.00 street price (as of the writing of this article) almost anyone can afford this press! And if you check out my Budget Precision 223 series, you’ll see that this press can be used to crank out good ammunition.
