Progressive press comparisons

Post by robert84010 on Sun Dec 13, 2015 5:00 pm

First topic message reminder :

I don't know if i'm just getting older and lazier, I've never really had a problem loading with my 550 but lately i've been looking at auto indexing with shell feeding presses. Can anybody give a comparison of presses with these features. some even have bullet feeding capabilities, can anybody comment on KISS or MA system units? I'm really looking for info on reliability and if the premium price of a STAR is worth it?
 I used a friends 650 once and it had constant shell feeding problems, it could have been his setup though? It was slower than my 550 overall because I was constantly fixing the little hangups.

I would probably buy a complete Dillon RL1000 in .45acp based on what i've read but I can't find one. If anybody is looking get rid of theirs I would be interested.
Thanks.

Just to throw something else into the mix, RCBS has both a 5 and 7 station progressive press that might be worth looking at.

Just to update. I ended up getting a Dillon 650, since I already had a blue press. Also the first thing I reloaded on it was 308 Winchester for my M1a, that eliminated getting a Star. Now I have a 550 with case feeder for small primer rounds and the 650 with case feeder for large primer rounds. I need to shoot a lot of pistol this summer to justify the added capacity. thanks for all the advice.

Anyone interested in volume production, short of commercial equipment, go to YouTube and search something like automated progressive presses. Last I looked there were a couple of motor driven 1050's vidieod. One of them with the ability to stop instantly for whatever. Quite impressive.
