Attn reloaders

I think I want to start doing some reloading. I like the idea of the least moving parts in a press, so I'm looking into a single station press. What is your choioce to get this job done, whether you like prograssives, or singles?

Thanks

I was looking at the first and second one, but the progressive would be cool, but my Dad's Dillon press has had a few issues with advancing the loads through the press

I use an old rcbs "junior" press I bought at a yard sale for 20$. It's not the fastest, but I don't get in a hurry when I'm loading anyway.

Yeah, I think that's the way to go, especially for beginners.

Now I think I have decided on a setup, great reviews, all steel construction and no lightweight aluminum

I got that Lee Deluxe turret but I've heard some great things about the Hornady L&L. Don't get in a big rush for the machine, until you get the components. I've been waiting for primers for a while.

I started with a Dillion 550b... I mainly shoot pistol but I can't imagine using a single stage. I have a friend who has that hornady LL and he really likes it.

the single stage is better to learn on and better to make precision loads with. the progresive is better for sitting down in an after noon and chucking out say 1000 rounds of pistol ammo or 223.

also the single stage equipment is much cheaper to get started than the progressive equipment.
