I just posted this blog with a picture of the Dillon XL-650, Lee Loadmaster, Hornady Lock-N-Load AP, and RCBS Pro 2000 all lined up side-by-side.

Hope you find this useful!

That Loadmaster looks anemic next to all the others.

You're my hero. Really.
Why is your wedding ring so big? I keep expecting it to fall off in one of your videos. Were you husky in a former life.

BTW, my son's name is Gavin

UltimateReloader, nice setup.

Which press do you end up using the most (work horse)?

Which press is easiest for you to change caliber?

Which press is your favorite?

And knowing what you know now, would you have started with a Dillon 1050?

I am asking because I MAY have an opportunity to add a 1050 to my bench in the near future (I will still keep my two Pro 1000) :D

Also, is there another press you would recommend over the 1050 in the similar price range.

TIA.

The only thing in the price range of the 1050 is a couple of lesser machines. Once you go up from a 1050 the next level is around $25,000 for an ammoload or camdex.

bds- I'm hoping to do videos and reviews of the 1050, but I don't have access to one yet. Stay tuned! I'm hoping to cover the entire Dillon progressive lineup.

That little Lee looks sorta pathetic next to the Dillon & Hornady :(


And I'm not bashing Lee, I have and use, two of their presses.

Just tell me which one to buy, and why it's the one. For loading <1000 rounds at a time, and changing calibers before the next loading session. Powder check desired. Standard dies required.

As much as I would like to hear what Gavin truly thinks about each machine, I'm betting he'll keep all negative opinions to himself. It is worth mentioning however, that he has custom pieces for sale that fit ONLY the Hornady LNL. Does that suggest that the LNL NEEDS custom parts or that it's the closest thing to perfection and therefore DESERVES a little perfecting? Man I love my LNL.

Red, Blue, Green and Lee what ever machine does the job you WANT it to do then that's the machine for you!

I was bit by Blue 25 years ago.

500 series

I was told it's not the size, but how you use it that matters ... :rolleyes: :D:D:D

I will admit though, I was impressed by the Dillon 1050 that my retired bullet caster used. It was simply awesome.
