I finally purchased a Dillion 550B with bells and whistles. Now the two month wait begins.

You will be very happy. The press has a few idosyncracies but is very reliable and Dillon can't be beat for service.

I had 3 cheaper presses & sold 2 of em. (still have a red single stage.)
I absolutely love my 550.

I hope you feel the same after you've had a chance to play with it.

In have another thread on my decision making and debate. But in the end the 550B just made the most since "for me". I could have gotten any press in that class for the money I spent, but manual progressive is what I wanted.

I was thinking Pro2000, LNL AP, Lee Classic Turret, Redding T7, and a 650 as well.

The RL550B had more pros than cons for the way I reload and want to accomplish than cons. Any of them would have served well though.

I don't think you'll be sorry, there are a boatload of 550's out there in use for a reason.

Good luck with it. :)
