Hay bama. This is the way it is for me: I don't shoot as much as I used to in any cals. My first press was a RCBS RockChucker. I also have had a Dillon RL550 for 15 years or so. I have a good selection of mostly RCBS dies in rifle/pistol, and have been adding on Dillon Dies for my common pistol cals. Dillon Dies cost more, but to me-are well worth it. I have had a good stock of components since before the Obama election, so I am still well equipped on primers,powder,bullets,brass. I treasure the independence that I have knowing that I can load most any round that I shoot, and DO NOT have to depend on WallyWorld,or any gun shop for the ammo that I want to shoot. The only factory loads that I buy are for PD. DO NOT carry handloaded ammo for Personal Defense!! Handloads for PD only give attorneys something to point the finger at you, if you have to shoot their clients. The two cals. that you are considering handloading have a large selection of bullet weights, and loads. You can tailor make the loads that YOU want to shoot-NOT some load that WallyWorld/gun shops, want to sell you.This makes it all worth it, to me. Yes cost per round is less==downside==You WILL shoot more!!
