What press to use for mass quantity .223 rounds ?????

What press would I need to purchase to load as many .223 bullets as fast as possible ? Do you load for your .223?
Thanks for any advice .
I use a single stage press but I think I would need a rotating type press.

The easy answer is a Dillon. They make the best progressive seni automatic press going and the most expensive. You get what you pay for.

Planning on stockpiling 223's???

I do all my loading on a dillon 550 b. When im loading for longrange, I use it as a single stage press, but when im loading 223, 40 45 etc, I run it progressivly. Call and,get a free catalog- 1-800-223-4570. The 550 b as it comes set up for one caliber is 439.95. Then u can buy a toolhead and conversion kit for each caliber. load rate is advertised at 500-650 hour and have found that to be accurate for pistols. if u are using crimped brass you will want the dillon super swager. The 550 is more versatile but if your only loading 223's they make some models that remove the crimp for u. Their customer service is unreal, break a a part and they will replace it no questions asked
