Dillon all the way. Been using Dillon for 30 years. No complaints.
When you go home, tell them of us and say:

"For your tomorrow, we gave our today."

I'm another Hornady L&L AP user. No problems to date. Easy to set up & use. Purchased from Dist. that sold Dillon, RCBS, Lee & Hornady. Price, availability & product quality were determining factors in my purchase. I use a variety of other Manuf. products but would buy Hornady again without reservation.

Default Dillon!

Bought a RL550 when it first came out back in the '80s and used it for several years, then got out of reloading during and after a nasty divorce.

Got the stuff out a few months ago(ammo prices too high) and got the system up and running with only a couple of glitches w the primer feeding system. Dillon support is amazing, plus the videos on YouTube help alot.
I have mine set up so far with dies and separate tool heads for .38/.357, 9mm and .45ACP. Once set up, changing calibers is a snap: pop out 2 pins, slide out the tool head w dies and powder feed and slide IN the new tool head w dies and drop them 2 pins in and voila'!!

I did spring for a new Dillon electric digital the heck outta my old RCBS beam scales. Great for checking powder drops and weighing projectiles, etc. Well worth the $$ I say.

Years ago when shooting Trap & Skeet
used a Ponsness-Warren.
When loading for handgun, Dillon.
No problems with either.

Ordered a MEC "Super Sizer" ?

Just got my LnL about two weeks ago. First progressive. Before this, I was (and still am) using a single stage. So far, I have it set up for 38 spl, 357 mag, and 9mm luger. The only problem I have had so far is it was missing the large primer shuttle when I opened the box. Contacted Hornady about this and they sent me one.
