I usually prep my cases apart from the day that I reload them, so I don't really have a hard number for throughput from scratch. Getting a powder measure is CRITICAL if you want to get the numbers reasonable, though! I'd say that you can get about 5 ops per minute out of the hand press once it is set up, so resizing (or seating or crimping) usually goes at about a 250-300 per hour kind of rate ... you can use that to figure out how many steps you like to use in your process ... some seat and crimp at one pass ... I choose to do those steps apart ...
