i went from rcbs single stage to a xl650. i still use my single stage for some loading. i like it for 458 winmag/lott 30-06 and 45-70. single stages are great for low production number cartridges and no loading bench is complete without one.
for progressives i cant recomend enough the xl650. the ease of use and setup is crazy. when you get ready saving for the xl650 in my opinion is a no-brainer.
the reason there is a col difference is bullet profile. lighter bullets tend to stick out less so you get a shorter col. all the bullets in a typical load are seated to the same depth in the case so the same amount of bullet is being gripped by the case.
this makes the oal different for different bullet profiles but the depth seated the same. hope that makes sense.
