I use an old Lyman turret. A turret is basically a single stage with movable dies.
I believe that batch loading, at the end, is just as fast as with a progressive press. And safer, and more fun, and you can take a break and come back. No pressure.
+1. I would add that my Lee Hand Loader gets the most use, either in front of the TV, or working a slow night job. Maybe not as fast as a progressive, once you get one working, but it allows inspection and interruption at ANY time in ANY step. I find this level of control very useful for rifle cartridges.
