Didn’t Take Long to Make a Decision…
I’ve decided on the reloading press I want! Yay! The decision I made is based on advice from a relative who does a lot, and I mean a LOT, of reloading for various calibers of pistol and rifle.
Tada! Here we go with the Dillon Precision’s RL550B Progressive Reloading Press.
Of course there are a “few” accessories I will be wanting to buy, but that is pretty irrelevant.
WHY DID I DECIDE ON THIS?
One simple word: VOLUME! I estimate that I will be reloading a minimum of 400 rounds per month, and a potential maximum of at least twice that many.
What will I be reloading?
First and foremost, I will want to work up a load in 9mm for a custom Glock 35 straight from the Glock Custom Shop next Spring. Secondly, there is the .40 S&W rounds I will be loading in “typical” and +P. Third, there is my sweet .308 Win rifle. That is actually my absolute favorite gun to shoot, but I do not intend to do rifle competition, whereas with the 9mm pistol, I do.
Therefore I will need 3 die sets to begin. They are not that expensive, and should last forever, as should this press.
TBD – Need to determine how to make space in the garage for a bench to do this, and for safe storage of components. Naturally I would prefer to set up in the family room right in front of the TV, but we all know how impractical that is, at least for a married man lol.
Okay. This is the latest in my reloading decision process. I realize that it is probably of little interest to many, many people, but I wanted to talk about it anyway, so there we go!
