X2! What marn said. I am thinking of selling/trading my dillon550 to get an rcbs setup to do my 204, 308, and 357. 9mm and 223 just aren't worth the time involved either way. It's a tedious process, and unless you are truly trying to create accurate rounds or save money on expensive/rare calibers, it not worth it, IMO.

Thanks for the posts Gents, some good info. Right now my motivation is to learn the skill of reloading, make an accurate 223 load and save some money about equally. I want to get into some longer distance stuff, first with my AR at 400-600 ranges and then a 308 bolt action that I plan on buying sometime next year.

I am all for the buy once theory. I would go straight to a progressive if I thought I would bulk load 9mm but I think 9mm is still cheap enough to not worry about that. Are the Rock Chucker set ups generally a much higher quality unit? I agree with you Marn, there is no room for scrimping on quality when it comes to things that go bang near your face and hands!

My dad and I share a progressive. When the whole ammo craze was really bad we could still load up anything we owned, but we've got all of our supplies pretty bulked up before all the craziness. It made sense before a lot of people were reloading. Now that the demand for components have gone up you don't save the kind of money you used to. I don't really reload much at all anymore because we've gotten to the point where we have a fairly substantial quantity of most the caliber we have. I've also got a shotgun press that I haven't really messed with. We only used to use it for seeing what all you can shoot out.

Is this why you are selling your Kahr; to fund reloading supplies? What do you think of that desantis holster?

The thought crossed my mind but the Kahr is leaving because I want to try something different. It's a great little gun with the 7 round mag but I'm kind of like Marn, gun a.d.d The Desantis is not bad, a solid feel to when drawing from it. It's not as positive reholstering but that's a function of the softer leather. It's comfortable to wear and the adjustable cant is a great feature.

Powrjunkey of course has ruined me talking about the Dillon 550! I made the mistake of watching it work in a their youtube video, that thing is pretty badass with all the addons. Now I want one, lol!

Keep an eye out on CL, BP, and eBay. There are deals to be made on them fairly often, surprisingly. All their stuff is lifetime warranty. I had to send mine in when I first got it, and they replaced everything that was worn, and reset all the adjustments. I just had to pay for shipping.

Thanks Roobicon.

I did notice that the Rock Chucker turret kit comes with a lifetime warranty and is only about $70 more than the Lee turret kit.
