The main difference with a progressive is you get a round out with each cycle of the handle instead of 3 or 4 cycles as the turret press requires. So, even if the effort were the same, you get only 1/4 your current exposure.

The regular Dillons require you to push the handle to seat the primer, and that might still aggravate your wrist. The only one that does not is the 1050 professional unit. It's got more leverage and works very well, but it's a big investment. On the other hand, I think they now have roller handles for the other presses which might help the wrist. I recommend you find somebody with a Dillon who will let you try operating it to see how it feels.
