After reading more about the 550 in the Blue Press,I see that I'll be buying a lot of caliber conversion kits.There goes the cash I saved on the press.Spend more to load more.

You will really enjoy it. What to load on it ? Every caliber you own, what else ? I got a nice deal on mine right here on TFL. I don't remember what I paid for it, but I got the press with all the options and 3-4 complete caliber conversions including powder measures and the whole nine yeads. I have been reloading for years, but this was a significant step forward for my pistol ammo. I personally don't load rifle ammo on mine, but that is mainly because I don't shoot all that much rifle ammo and what I do shoot is easily loaded on one of my other presses. I think you got an unbelievable deal, I would have owned two if that deal was presented to me.

Under the trees at the turn of the road,
And only pausing to fire and load.
