    Talk about taking things too literally.
    Had a guy ask about a progressive press: "I heard that every time you pull the handle you get a loaded round. How does the press hold the powder and bullet in position so the press can do everything in one step?"

    Now that is someone who does not "progress".

    When you have to explain that "progression" requires steps to be taken.

    But it is better than "congression". :)

    In this video you see a dillon 650 Dillons lowest cost true progressive. The powder is held in a powder measure just like it would in a normal reloading set up. The 650 and the lower manual progressive the 550b can have case feeders. The case feeder allows the press to place the case on the press without you doing it. There are bullet feeders out there as well.
