Re: Rounds per Powder Case
A turret press is inbetween a single stage and a progressive press as far as speed goes. The turrets have 3 or 4 stations to hold your sizing die, your seating die and a neck sizing die if you have one and if it's a 4 station you can mount your powder dispencer there. The advantage of a turret over a single stage is once you get all your dies set in their locations on the turret plates you dont have to move them again only rotate the turret to the die you need for that operation. The disadvantage is you have to buy extra turrets for different calibers. I personally feel that once a turret design starts to wear your ammo quality will begin to suffer due to the design of the system. I dont know if it's for sure and possibly I'm wrong for thinking that but it won't be the first time.
The main advantage of a progressive is speed and # of rounds you can turn out in less time but it's more complex to operate and for a beginner it may overwhelm you to the point you give up on it. A good single stage press is about the best way to start out in my opinion.
