Dillon for me too. Easy to use great support and the machines are fast. I use my xl650 for almost everything. I load about 10 different calibers. Ill load between 500-1000 pistol rounds at a wack im usually done between 30 minutes to an hour. But ive got a automatic primer tube filler. Filling primer tubes is usually what slows progressives down.

Dillon is by far the P51 Mustang of progressive reloading equipment, fast reliable and loads accurate ammo. The best by far but pricey. For me, I own a Lee classic cast turret press for pistol rounds only. It will load rifle ammo as well. Not as fast as the Dillon, not as expensive either. It's more like the venerable P40 Warhawk, rugged, reliable maybe not as fast but it gets the job done. The warbird analogy is my favorite because the history is already written.
