Hey guys. I've been looking thru this forum, as well as others, to try and make a semi-educated purchase of a reloading press. I think I have absorbed too much info since I haven't made any progress at all. I would reload 3 calibers only- 9mm, .45, & .223/5.56 It is entirely possible that I won't reload 9mm or .45 very frequently, if at all. This purchase would be for reloading .223 mostly. My requirements would be 1000 rds/month max. It is more likely that I would only reload around 500 rds/month. I think a progressive press is extremely overkill for my needs and would be too expensive up front (except the Pro 1000) by the time I have everything I need. Also, if I find I just don't have the time or desire to reload, I don't want a bunch of coin tied up in it. I have read about the Lee, Dillon, RCBS, Hornady, etc., and have no clue what would be the best option for me at the most reasonable price. I have researched enough to know that Lee is my least expensive option, but will more than likely require me to purchase additional items due to quality issues (such as a better scale). I am not opposed to piecing something together, but would prefer to buy some type of kit since I am just starting out. I realize that dies aren't included, along with some other necessities, but if the kit comes with a scale, I don't expect to have to replace it unless it is still cost-effective. I would really appreciate any suggestions or personal experiences on what you guys are using, and what you feel would work for my needs. Thank you.
