My wife gave me the OK to get the press that I want. I am looking at the RL550b, the Hornady Lock-N-Load AP progressive, and the Lee Classic Turret kit at Kempf's.
I already have a scale, calipers, and manuals and some Lee dies.
I want a press that is easy to run, economical, and very little fuss. I will be loading, 9mm, 38, 357 and maybe 30.06 and 303 brit. I'm leaning toward the Lee because of ease of setup and adjust and the ability to then afford a case tumbler, and maybe a crono. I can also get all the "upgrades" w/o having to spend another $300-400 over the price of the press.
How fussy are the progressives? Right now if I get one, I'm leaning toward the Hornady, seems to be more bang for the buck. What do you all feel? What options are "necessary" over the basic press other than turrets?
