CD, if it was me and I was starting out anew, I would get a progressive press that handles rifle and pistol cartridges. I spent years slaving away with a single stage press. In the eighties I bught a Dillon Square Deal and never looked back for handgun cartridges. If I shot rifles cartridges in mass I would buy a progressive to handle that job.
I've never been able to load 200 rounds per hour on a turret press. I'm pretty sure I could load rounds faster on a single stage.
I have one of each and if you decide to go with something other than a progressive, be sure you mount it next to a wall so you have something handy to bang your head against.
