a good benchmark, in my opinion, on a single stage operation is 50 rds an hour....

( and its one of the reasons I went to a Dillon 650 with a case feeder a long time ago !! ).

Its pretty easy to get 50 rds ( with everything set up - powder drops checked for accuracy, cases are prepped and in the case feeder,primer feed is full... ) ...off a progressive press with a case feeder in under 3 min .../ all you're doing on a progressive press at that point is putting a bullet on the case in station 4 ...and cycling the handle...

but as others said, its not about speed, its about consistency and accuracy - and I know my press acomplishes that very well.
