    Hey, you've even got the media tumbler.
    Knowing now what I didn't know then, I would have bought two plastic colanders and a plastic dish washing tub for 5 bucks, lol.
    But they do work nice.

    Knowing what you know now, I might have done it your way. But since I didn't know then what I know now, I bought one....

    I use my original press for all reloading, a 1975 Herter's single stage. I don't reload in in the quantities that would justify the expense of a progressive in any color. I also have a Lee hand press I use for all my handgun case sizing, etc. I do most of that while in my recliner.

    Same. Except my friends are Priest, Sabbath, Halestorm, Slash, and Motorhead.

    As for presses, I like the red Kool Aid. I have a Hornady Classic single stage for precision reloading and a Lock N Load AP for bulk.

    I started out with a Herter press. It was built like a tank.

    Dillon 650 for .45 Auto and 9x19, RCBS Rock Chucker for .30-06, 7.62x51, 7.62x39, 7.7x58, 6.5x50, and 5.56x45. Right now I'm concentrating on the 6.5x50 loads in order to understand the ladder sight graduations on my Arisaka Type 38's. The Japanese had a reputation for poor marksmanship and I'm finding evidence of why this moght have been.
