I'm looking into reloading as I am going to start shooting more since applying for my CHL. I have a SIG 229 and am looking at also purchasing a Glock 23 for my EDC. So i'd be reloading .40 S&W.
Reading a lot of reloading posts everyone seems to suggest starting out with a single stage press, rather than progressive. I have a hard time justifying buying a press that I'll just end up selling down the road, I know I will want a progressive press for the speed, and the 550B seems to me that you can manually index it and just do a single round at a time anyways.
I also am looking to buy an AR-15, and would probably reload it, whether it be .223 or .308, so the Square Deal press is out for me at least once I buy an AR15. I'm very particular about things so I know I'd have the patience to check rounds and do things properly on a progressive.
i've really only been considering a dillon 550B, because I'd like to eventually add the case feeder to maximize my rounds per hour output. I did see a hornady in a magazine that looked nice, and autoindexed but everyone everywhere seems to recommend dillon.
I'm 23, so I've got plenty of time left in my life to reload so I'd like to get something that will last me a long time.
