All I can say is I should have bought one a long time ago! Man you can crank out some ammo with this thing. I been loading for a while on single stages and turret presses but this progressive has spoiled me. Right now im just loading 9mm for plinking but you can easily run 300-400 an hour while taking your time.

Its a lee loadmaster, I know lot of people dont like lee stuff but this thing works. I also bought a lee classic 4hole with auto index to do my rifle rounds and it cuts the time way down also.

I cant read this...Ive got no reason for buying a progressive press, yet I am still wanting one...I load less than 500 rounds a year on my lee turret press...

Would like to find out what kinks you run into after 10k rounds. Hopefully none.

I might just have to upgrade. I have been loading on a Lee single stage for a while now. I use to really enjoy it but lately it seems like I am getting bored. 200 pulls of the arm on the single stage to load 50 rounds UGH!

Congrats on the progressive press.

I bought a Lee progressive press back in 1986 to load 44 mags.. also load 38's and .223's.. I couldnt tell you how many I have loaded on that little jewel but it still works as good today as the day I got it..

Thats whats great about this one. When you start empty it takes four pulls to fill the shell plate then every handle pull it spitsout a round. I have the cae feeder so its my only limit right now. It holds around 110-115 cases. I just load till its empty then reload it and start again.
