I would stick with either Dillon or RCBS. They are both high quality presses that will last a lifetime.

I typically use the rock crusher but a co-worker of mine had to move and could'nt take his press with him so he left it with me. I'ts the lee loadmaster 1000 or whatever and to be honest with you i'ts not a bad press. I've loaded thousands of rounds of 45 acp with it. The only real problem I have with it is you need to take your time and slow down a little when the plate is rotating to the next station or it will throw powder out of the cases and it finds i'ts way into the priming sytem and start to jam it up. At that point you need to stop and clean it up (trust me on this) or you will have primers upside down, sideways, or empty primer pockets. That is my only complaint about this press. Otherwise i'ts not a bad press.
I do admit that I would like to get me a nice Dillon some day.

Default Progressive

DILLON, Period. They are the best with great customer service. I would NEVER use anything else.

You would have to buy a Dillon 650 at half again the price to get the reliability and speed of a Lock 'n' Load progressive. And Hornady's customer service is second to none.

Here is a paper written by a guy who has done all the work on researching the three most popular progressives:

Thanks for the link. It has made me rethink my decision.

DILLION, after you use one you will be sold, I have 5 or so, can't have have too many presses, LOL. Have never used anything else since using my first Dillion 450. But I did buy a monster RCBS for loading .50 BMG before Dillion came out with one.
