    Why not Redding? Why not Lyman? Why not RCBS? Why not Hornady? Why not Sinclair? :ugh: No it's not progressive.

    Lee is inexpensive and has good reviews. Plus that press will reload most calibers pistol and rifle.

    I was just trying to work out why you bought what you did. I;m in the same market and the Dillion looks good but I have no experience with any besides looking at the online videos

    Dillon makes good stuff but they only produce progressive presses and most people don't shoot enough to need one nor do they want to drop the change on one.

    That reminds me, I put some cases in the tumbler like 4 hours ago :o If you're using Hornadys bullets you should also consider picking up their manual, the newest edition just came out I think. That also reminds me that I have some 120gr 7mm V-Maxs and I dont think I have any loading data for them :hsugh:

    I am using lead for now but I like the hot loads. I heard you should not put lead past 950 fps what do you think?

    I'm not disagreeing with it. Everyone and their mom knows that Dillon is better than Lee. But its apples to oranges. Lee excels at starter kits and getting people involved in reloading, Dillon is for those who like to crank out a lot of rounds with efficiency and accuracy.

    depends on your firearm

    i push lead out of my 44 mag rifle at 1450ft/sec with no leading most of what I have heard is you want to keep it at 1200 or so though
