I own Lee pots and the new Pro Melt.
You will pay a little more for the Pro Melt but you will not be dissatisfied even if you pour just a few pounds of lead a month or a year for that matter.
You can continue to put up with the drip or not.
If you can, drive the higher end, do so. Use the Lee to clean/flux your lead.
You will never go back and your headaches and frustration will go away.
