Best Progressive Reloader

I have been doing alot of research on the different progressive reloaders out there and I was wondering what you guys thought was your favorite? I did a search on here but didn't turn up much in results on this particular subject. I am leaning towards a Dillon because I have read alot of good things about them. I have also heard good things about the Hornady too though. What have you guys found to be the pros and cons of each? Thanks in advance for your help. I am going to do a poll for those that may want to vote and because they are fun sometimes.

I own a Dillon and have seen a Hornady in person. In my opinion there is no comparison....Dillon is the best, hands down!

Re: Best Progressive Reloader

Thats what I seem to be hearing about the Dillon. But one question that I should have asked is how accurate are the progressive reloaders. Can you get them to be as accurate as the single presses?

Re: Best Progressive Reloader

Have only used the Dillon for 204,223,22-250 and 243 but it does a better job of seating and run out than my old Lyman turret press.
As with most powder measurer's it works better with ball or short cut powders and a full case(easy to make sure the powder is visually right when you set the bullet on top)
The Dillon sure has speeded up reloading the prairie dog rounds!!

Re: Best Progressive Reloader

Another vote for Dillon! I'm very happy with mine and have loaded very accurate loads on it.
