best press for many many rounds

I ran into a guy at a show in Mass and he was selling reloads. I bought 100 rnds and they were good range rounds. He claimed to be making a nice bit of pocket change doing this. I wanted to investigate the possibility and wanted to hear from people that have found a good press for large amounts of rounds any suggestions

I wouldn't buy reloads from anyone unless they were a full blown re-manufacturing plant-- if a friend helps you it's one thing, but someone you don't know is a bit dangerous.
I'd look at an rcbs rockchucker- possibly the kit because you will need a scale and some other things too; check out threads on getting started reloading using the search function

Re: best press for many many rounds

I have to agree with Lefty, if it's not a factory load or loaded by someone you know, it's not worth fooling wirh. You nevr know whats inside until you touch it off and then it could very well blow up in your face.

I shoot handloads loaded by a friend of mine in my 44 magnum but I know he's loading for his as well and I'm comfortable with his reloads.

If you really want to get into serious output, check out the Dillon Precision Line of presses. Not cheap but quick loading progressive presses.

Re: best press for many many rounds

yeah I guess I'd have to agree with you all. I had thought that building a solid reputation as a quality craftsman would eliminate some concerns you all expressed. I have a good friend that loads for several of us but he is looking to step away He says that he's getting too old at 80 yrs.

Ask him to show you a bit about reloading and/ or at least get the load data from him on what you've been using. Get specifics-- oal, powder charge(brand and weight), brand/weight of bullet(and wheather boat-tail or not), primer. Get it all if you can.

Ask him to show you a copy of his liability insurance policy!!!!

ONE faulty round and that guy can be sued into oblivion!

As far as presses goes...Dillon; RCBS; Redding; Hornady...etc. They all make top quality presses
