Default Reloading

I'd like advice on what brand of reloading equipment y'all recommend. Or really any advice possible

RCBS, Hornaday, Lyman all make very good products. Single stage or Turret type presses from any of these will give good service.

Lee is (perhaps) a step down. Some of their products are equals to the above, some are just cheap.

If you are interested in a progressive there is only one I would recommend DILLON!. The finest progressive presses under $2000

It is all going to boil down to budget and need. Do you need to load 400+ rounds an hour? If not, a single stage or turret press will probably do what you need.

No lol 400 an hour is little extreme. I'm just a precision shooter that's wanting to perfect his own round ya know. Is there a particular set up you use?

There is a sticky in this section about selecting the right press. I would start there first and see if that will answer some of your questions.

I personally just got a RCBS single stage press set up. It does hurt the wallet a little more than some do, but it is of great quality. I have no complaints.

Lee makes good stuff that wont break the bank like Dillon and RCBS.
