advice on 45-110 bp reloading

I have a Shiloh 45-110. Love the rifle but want to start reloading myself. Thinking about the Lee single stage any advice, thoughts or recommendations on what works best for the size of the case

Not a lot of help but...

I am loading 45-70 with both a Pacific single stage as well as the Lee Classic which started out as a three position press and I upgraded to four holes. I am using Lee dies and for the price, I love them. Worthwhile buying a turret for each caibler you loads so as not to have to go through the process of resetting the dies.

It is my personal opinion that a progressive press works best for smokeless rounds. I like loading BPCR with a multi-position (but not progressive) press.

I have an ECHO press on the evil bay for sale for 55.00 and I am not budging on the price.It is worth that just to just keep it.

I did an awful lot of work to the press and it is better than new.

I think the Lee classic cast would do ok.
I don't get in a hurry with BPCR and do not need or want a turret or semi-progressive.

In addition to sizing and seating dies, you also need a separate expander die and a powder compression die.
The Buffalo Arms catalog is the BPCR shooter's wishbook.

You can get a lot of help on the Shiloh board at
