I guess I'll just stick with my LEE single stage. It does everything I need it to do. If I got done any quicker, I wouldn't have anything to do.

Guess I’m going to upset someone and I’ll apologize now but I recently read this comment on one of the forums that I visit that stated that ‘Lee was the Harbor Freight of reloading’ or words to that effect. I’ve never owned one of their presses but have had other Lee products and believe it to be a fairly accurate statement.
Another quick story. When my father inlaw passed an uncle gave my wife this suggestion. When you are looking for a casket at the funeral home ask to see the most expensive one and then the least expensive one. Then go up one from the least and buy that one. That’s what my wife did. Everyone was fine with her choice except the funeral home.

"Lee was the Harbor Freight of reloading’ or words to that effect "


I suppose there are points to that statement ...LEE did have a cast Aluminum based entry model for about $80

But the LEE Classic Turret is cast iron base with steel parts and solid.

For that volume of reloading, I'd go Dillon 550.  I think you don't need an auto-indexing press with 5 stations for this kind of work.

Have 2 dillon 550s [given to me] and 2 T- magIIs. One Dillon is 45acp/AR only, the other is currently for 300Hamr , the 2 Lymans vary, one has been reloading my 45 Schofield-.455 and .45special from last weeks match. The second has .38 dies on it. I have multiple Dillon measures and quick connect gizmos on them so I can easily change dies and change measures and start cranking out loads. I prime on these press. Another thing is that I don’t switch primer arms, I leave the large primer one on all the time. They work fine with small primers.

I'm all blue press when it comes to loading volume.
