Progressive Press
 
So I've got a total of about 8000 different cases boxed up in my basement to reload. I have a Lee's single stage press and would like to take a step up. I've not been reloading a super long time but thought I'd hit some of you up that have.

So... What is a solid progressive press that will hold up well? Looking at one of these http://www.midwayusa.com/product/671219/lee-load-master-progressive-press . Any thoughts or differing opinions?

Back in my days of competing, I always went with Dillon and their "no-BS" warranty.

Anything broke, they fixed it or sent me the part for free.

Yep, Dillon is the way to go in a progressive. I like the little Lee Turret for small batch straight wall case runs. The Lee Load Master Progressive was terrible. I had one in .40 S&W which is an easy case. I spent too much time keeping it running.:(

Are you talking one caliber??
The Hornady is a solid press with economical caliber change cost

223, 40, 45, 9mm, 338 Lapua, and 308

You will really like the Hornady LNL feature, Fast and not expensive way to change calibers

Another vote for the Hornady LnL AP. Had a Dillion 550, switched to the Hornady when I wanted a progressive, have not regretted my decision.

You ended up with a 5 station, Auto Indexing press with a much better powder measure!

Lee Progressive
 
I started out with a Lee Progressive and it was nothing but a pain in the AZZ. Finally went with 2 single stage presses, that I bought used at the gun shows, I use one for decapping and re-sizing, the other for bullet seating. Only have to make one die change. :)
