+1. And a +100 on getting at least 2-3 different reloading manuals, and read them before starting. The ABC;s of reloading is a great one to have too.

Me too I think. And for the reason you just stated, becuase it can be used as a single stage press while learning and then pick up the pace later on. I almost suggested the same thing.

I think I will always continue to load my rifle ammo single stage though. Simply because when I load pistol ammo it is for shooting paper and I need some quantity, but my rifle ammo is for precision shooting and hunting.

I started on a LEE single stage press, but I recently began loading using a LEE hand press. No wife to complain about where I load so I do it in front of the TV. Sometimes I will just prep shell cases. Other times I will load and seat. Never more than 50 rounds at a time. It beats the hell out of a therapist I do put everything away when I'm finished so its not like my living room is a gun shop. I reload 38, 9mm, 40, 45 and soon 50 AE but I do everything by hand now.

When I first started looking, I thought I had to have a Dillon but it was going to be a lot more money than I thought I would have to spend to get started. Talked to several people and did some looking around. I ended up with a Lee Classic Turret. It really does do a great job. I sometimes still think about the Dillon, maybe some day.
