I bought a Rockchucker as my first press and agree it is an excellent single stage press. BUT, I got tired of all the tedium in single stage reloading and bought myself a Dillon 550B 6 months later. When I reload, I reload a bunch (like 1,000 rounds) because I don't like the change-over for large/small primer feed and small/large capacity powder dies.

If you are shooting 100-150 rounds a week, that equates to 2,500 or more rounds every six months. 2,500 would be a nice production run for, say, 9mm or .45 ACP.

I reload just about everything in pistol including 9mm, .45 ACP, .38/357, and .45 Long Colt. For rifles, I reload a bunch of 5.56, and moderate amounts of 30-06 and .308.

Bottom line, if I were starting over, I would just buy the Dillon up front. It is easy to use, works almost flawlessly, and is backed up by a NO BS warrenty and a service staff ready to help you.

Hope this helps, Mikey
