The absolute best one to load lots of pistol ammo on is the 1050. If you use mil surp 45 you need to remove the primer crimp and the 1050 will do it as you load, same for 223. I've had one for more than a decade and it's still running just as well as when I started with it. I also have the 650 and had the 550.
The newer version of the 1050 will also do rifle cartridges up to 30-06 size, I understand.
It all depends on how much money you want to spend.

    I will have to look in to that. I never thought about surplus brass. What do they consider "comercialy fired" brass? I found some on Hi-tech ammo pretty cheap. Thanks again!

    I second the square deal B I have been using one for 8-9 years and never had a problem. I can load about 300 an hour taking my time.

    Fowler Bullet Dropper and Coolator a must..

    I have a Dillon 1050 fitted with a Fowler Bullet Dropper and a MA Systems Coolator. I can load about 3000 rounds per hour easily. I have a ten tube turrent primer feed on my press. This allows for loading 1100 rounds before stoping to replenish bullets, powder and primers. These systems are quiet expensive but make your press able to keep up with a Camdex or Ammoload machine for a 1/5 of the cost.
