Already part of the wonderful world of reloading. It's just that I touch off about 500 rounds per month in my 1911 during the winter; more closer to 800 a month in the summer. The Rock Chucker and the Lee Turret press work well enough, but at that pace I need higher throughput. I was too afraid of the negative reviews on the LoadMaster and Pro 1000 to get a Lee progressive. So the Hornady it is. In a few months I'll save up and get the case feeder

That's a minor pain/price compared to the joy of churning out quality rounds on that LnL.

I use an RCBS Pro 2000, but I tried a friends LnL, and I really liked it as well.

Churn out some good ammo!

As a Dillon 650 owner, I say good on ya. I think you'll enjoy your press. So much for the good news, now the bad. You WILL end up spending more money on a casefeeder for your LNL. Then it will cost the same as a 650 with casefeeder. How do I know? The advantage of a casefeeder is tremendous. Once you try one you'll never be satisfied until you own one.

I intend to get both a case and bullet feeder for it. If I had never intended to use those, I'd have gone with the Dillon 550, as auto index doesn't help you much without case and bullet feed. I just won't start out with them immediately because funds are a bit on the tight side at the moment. Probably sometime in June I'll be in a position to get a case or bullet feeder. I'll probably get the case feeder first.

Glad to see another LNL user. Hornady red koolaid is, imo, better than blue koolaid. I think you will find the versatility of this press an advantage.

Don't think you can go wrong with that LNL or the other popular progressive reloaders.

Think of it this way, that's barely a 1/4 of the price of a decent 1911 ;)

I just discovered that the place you linked to is very similar to Mountain Ridge Armament. In fact my login works for both and I have never been to big planetgear.com. My backorder # does not work on bgp but the price is lower for my backorder and they both have the same est. arrival date. May just have to cancel one and order off the other. Thanks for that link it may have just paid my shipping.

Got mine from Manventure Outpost, also for $360. After shellplate and shipping it came out at $407. Expensive, but for that press plus shellplate shipped, that's a pretty good price.
