the dillon xl1050 is the fastest but it doesnt have many caliber conversions and it takes a long time to convert from one to another.

the best versatile fastest reloader is the dillon xl650.

Are you planning on going commercial with your reloading?

I like Dillon's products for speed and accuracy. (and their no BS guarantee)

No BS guarantee on the SDB, 550 and 650---1050 not so much. They
consider it a commercial machine, and get a little iffy about replacing
worn out parts.

I don't reload but I've talked to some who do. I would worry more about accuracy than speed. The guy I know won't use a progressive loader. He likes to check each load more than once.

I couldn't afford one so I don't know if they are fast for sure or not, but I've heard good things about Dillon Super 1050. You don't hear about them very much but then this the first time I recall anybody ever asking about reloading for speed.

The fastest would be the 1050 Dillon, but it`s for handgun only I believe. The 650 Dillon will do rifle or handgun and is nearly as fast. I own a 550 Dillon that will pump out ammo nearly as fast as the 650 and I would never want any other loader. I load for a large number of different rounds, something over 30, and the cost for me to get set up on any other press would be outragious. As for the friend of Winds of Change saying that you can`t get accurate ammo for a progresive press, unless he is a competive benchrest shooter, I would shoot for money with the ammo I load on my Dillon.

The Super 1050 is the way to go.
However, even more than the other Dillon presses, calibe conversions are expensive.
For maximum speed, you will want a bullet feeder and someone to keep filling primer tubes.
I have never used a bullet feed system, but I would look for one that feeds the bullet to the bullet seating die. The Hornady/RCBS bullet feeds take one station just to place the bullet on the case. This eliminates the used of a powder check die. I believe the GSI bullet feed and, maybe, the Mr Bullet feeder, places the bullet in position at the seating die (thus, requiring a caliber-specific seating die.
For most, a 650 with the case feeder is more than adequate. I never needed a case feeder and found the Hornady L-N-L to be more than adequate.
Then, there are the real ammunition production machines for high volume commercial loading.
