Hi there Upjeeper,
My personal experience has mainly been with only one brand of progressive press: Hornady, and more specifically the Projector progressive - I purchased it when I was about sixteen and only just now upgraded to the newer model: Hornady Lock-n-Load progressive press. Man, what an upgrade it was - new model is far superior to the older one. I can re-load at twice the rate I did before!
I had the previous model for many, many years on which I re-loaded:
- 9mm Luger
- 40 S&W
- 44 Rem Mag
- .308 Winchester
and now I do all those on the new press much faster. In the near future I will upgrade and add the empty shell feeder attachment for even speeder loading.
So, bias and all - for me the Hornady Lock-n-Load is perfect! Go and buy a new one you will not look back.
