I have high volume to load, so I started with a progressive press (Hornday LNL). As I did, you can start out as slow as you like, just like a single stage press, and monitor/check every step of the loading operation, no different than a single stage.

No modern bullet is designed to tumble. Do some tumble after they hit flesh? Yes, but not because of design.

Tell him the reason.

The reason no modern bullet is designed to tumble is because there are much more effective solutions for terminal ballistics.
