It's interesting reading about these different methods. I find myself loading almost everything on my Lee LCT. Over the years I've considered a progressive, but not only can I not justify the cost, I really don't have the space. I typically shoot under 1000 rifle rounds per year, and something like 3000 or 4000 various handgun rounds. With rifle rounds, I neck size and prime on a single stage. Then I'll put primed cases in the LCT. I charge, expand (I'm shooting home cast lead), seat, and crimp in the 4 stations. It works very well for me.
