Beginner reloader of .380, 9mm, 45, and .223. I bought a RCBS Rock Chucker new wholesale from a dealer friend who needed to unload it as he is getting out of the business and I wanted something to get started. I was also able to get some of the other stuff I needed including a 45 die, powder, powder gauge, and tumbler from him. I wanted a RCBS 2000 but he said there would be a long wait. He said he could maybe get me a slightly used Dillon 650 in a few months. My friend tried to discourage me from buying a progressive press as he said that there were too many things to go wrong with them. I'm not interested at this point in the ultimate load for the best match round which I think the single stage is good for. I'm just trying to insure volume production for my handguns as I probably shoot at least 10,000 rounds a year. Did I do the right thing given the current availability situation?
