Re: Which progressive reloading kit?

My main goal for reloading myself is to cut down the cost, so I can enjoy more shooting, either on the range or on the field. Should I start up with single stage press then eventually upgrade to progressive press? Or maybe just bite the bullet to invest in a progressive kit to get over with it? Thanks.

Hi, 7mmSendaro, do you find reloading big bore bullet on a single stage press more efficient than a progressive one? If precise control is what you want, what about time spend on reloading them? Does it takes much longer time to reload on a single stage press?

LOL That's what I was thinking.

I don't consider giving a person an idea of where his deficiencies lay to be criticism. Telling him to get a progressive reloading press will not improve his situation and could get him hurt.

Wizard, you need to learn a lot more before you make decisions regarding reloading equipment, which was my purpose in recommending the book. You should also get a reloading manual, Lyman's is good, as well as Speer's and Hornady's, and it will give you a much better of idea of what constitutes reloading before you attempt it. Start out with a single-stage press, as too much is going on simultaneously with a progressive. Until your reloading volume is adequate to require a progressive (which would be considerable), stay with the simpler process.

BTW, Hornady is making a pretty decent progressive press these days. You should be able to make your own decisions when the time comes.

Thanks for the honest advice Winchester 69. I will go and get a couple of relaoding manual first to get a thorough understanding of reloading before I jump in to anything.

I'm glad you understand the intent of my postings. I apologize for being undiplomatic, but your needs weren't being met, and I wanted for you to realize that.

You will have questions as you learn, and there are a number of forums on which to post them.
