best progressive press?

Probably the New York Times.

Sorry.... I couldn't resist.

For when you get serious about ammo :

I have been using a Dillon (RL 450) since 1984. I have probably put a half million rounds through it. I load .380 up to .30-06 on it. I also have an RCBS JR press for the smaller scale stuff that I cannot justify buying the Dillon conversion for (.32 ACP - .45-70). I cannot imagine life w/o a Dillon.

I have several friends who got Lee progressives (1000?) against my advice. They all ended up with Dillons eventually.

To save money, I have discovered you can load .380 using the .223 shell plate and the 9mm powder funnel. .40, 10mm, .357 Sig, ,38 Spl, .357 Mag and 7.62 X 39 can be loaded on a single shell plate. Of course .45 ACP, .243, .308, .30-06, 7 X 57 and 8 X 57 (and a few others) all use the same shell plate.


In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
