So.... thought i would post for those of you who were like me using a single stage press. I have been in the market for a progressive press for around two months now although I wasn't quite sure which one. I wanted the Dillon 650 with case feeder, but when I added up all of the options (it's like buying a car leather seats versus cloth aluminum handle versus plastic) I needed (wanted) it came out to over a thousand dollars. So I decided to hold off and move on it during the winter months. A week after I formulated my game plan, a member on this board was selling a smaller Dillon setup for 45 acp. After some thought..I bought it. Coming from the single stage press perspective - this machine is truly incredible - I love it. Pros - I can load (accurately) around 100 rounds of 45 ACP every 20 minutes. This is a comfortable pace and doing periodic checks of powder and things. Ergo wise - this device is perfect. I have tried to perfect case placement and bullet placement on my last setup and never really had it nailed - this device has perfected that. It's a Dillon Low primer indicator is nice although not necessary, but cool and a positive. Cons It's complex and if you're not paying attention you can make mistakes. I always check powder levels at least twice for each case when I load, and since I did not check each case on my first two hundred rounds (lots of other moving pieces) I cannot with udder certainty know that the first two hundred rounds I loaded are perfect - hence they will be busted apart and redone. It would be cool if Dillon made a light that would attach to the press so that you can easily check status at any given time. I find myself now shining a flashing light periodically to check things. This is a hassle. It's a Dillon -Overall I am simply ecstatic that I can churn out hundreds of rounds in a hour. The result is what I wanted - however its very clear that if you make a mistake with your setup and dont catch it, you can have hundreds of rounds that are garbage, questionable or need to be broken apart. I would NOT recommend this to someone new to reloading.
