I started with a Lee to get my feet wet, for the volume of rounds I was shooting I need to move up to a progressive. I have 6 presses but only 4 mounted because of lack of space.
I will eventually get a 650.

I agree with COZ, all manufactures seem to have something they do well. And to get a truly good setup, you have to have a mix of colors. Kind of like a good color pallet for painting if you would.

Dang, I thought I had a mess with my Dillon 550b, Lee Challenger and Mec 600 JR. I am a lightweight compared to you guys. I too shoot way more than I ever did before I started reloading. I just started with pistol calibers and have gotten into rifle. The rifle bug has really bitten me as I have discovered that my guns that I previously thought wouldn't shoot, shoot extremely well with hand loads.

I use the Lee Challenger for sizing rifle brass and use the Dillon for loading rifle and pistol cartridges. I have a Lyman trimmer and RCBS swager.

So, I have Blue, Red, Orange, and Green.

Yea I found things like. For 45acp I dont like doing them on the Pro-jector but they fly out of my RCBS Piggy Back. 223's are a pain for me on the Piggy but are sweet on the Projector.
I can do them all on ether one just seems that each has a sweet spot.
This like the Lyman True line jr's. Those were cheap and are for fun.

I feel inadequate.
I feel that I just walked into the NBA shower room.
And all I have after 30 years is a Rock chucker and a Dillon 550.
I’m so embarrassed I won’t even post photos.

I have one single-stage press for cartridge reloading, and one shotshell press.

I cast most of what I shoot.

It's enough for me, but I have other hobbies too.

The fastest one I have will load 100 rounds in 2.5 minutes. The computer controled one is a bit slower at 3.5 minutes per 100 but you can do other stuff while it loading.
