I agree!!! I do however have a good friend that has been reloading for many years and he will be my guide I also did not want to by a single stage and six months down the road spend another $400 on the progressive. Thank you for your advice though.Hmmm. You got a good press, but IMHO, a progressive press isn't a good choice for a new reloader. Too many things happen every time you pull the handle. You need to learn to walk before you run...
I will keep that in mind. I can buy a good single stage for a lot less money. I just had the money set aside for the progressive and bought it. it is not often that I have an available $400You will still wind up finding a need for a single stage press. You should never not have at least 1 good single stage press.
hot diggety!I just bought my first reloading press. I got the Dillon 550 b progressive. I would like to hear any thoughts about the press (good or bad) or advice on reloading.
i was sooo happy when i got mine.
i still have my lil lee single stage that i use for target rifle rounds.
but i recently wanted some plinking ammo for my .308
whipped up 300 rounds on the dillon real quick after sizing on the lee.
because a fair amount of the brass was fired in a semi auto and big enough to make it hard to resize them.Why would you size on a Lee first?
