    This is the press I got for free.
    What am I missing?

    The round turret with the three holes goes in it from the top. Do those turrets have a square indent on the other side in the middle, if so you also need the auto index rod and actuator for the ram. You also need the primer tool insert.

    Even without the auto index clamp for the ram and the index rod you can manually index the turret by hand and load. Unless you have a hand priming tool you will need the small/large priming arms from lee. They are cheap get both. Their web site probably has a parts list with part #'s

    I weigh all my loads individually so I hand turn the turret. and use the hand priming tool.
    You still need the extras to get started but thats a good start.

    It's the older version and doesn't have the spot for auto indexer rod. Ill get online and check those out.

    I was thinking of doing them by hand with the lee primer tool.
