    Just trying to get an idea of the popularity of the various brands.

    If you dont see your brand, name it and if I can I will edit and put it in there.

    I use three regularly, but your poll only allowed one choice. Mine are RCBS, Hornady and Hollywood, plus a special purpose Magma Case Master jr.

    "What brand is your main loading press."

    Perhaps the better question would be, "What press would you prefer?"

    I've used a Rock Chucker for some 20 years but that was a shot in the dark. If I had it to do over, tomorrow, I'd get a Lee Classic Cast or Forster Co-Ax. For sure not another RC. It's okay but no better than others of its type and I'm tired spent primers all over the floor!

    I didn't vote, it would be misleading data.

    I used a RC for a long time (not as long as you), went ahead and got a Co-Ax even though the RC still works. Glad I made the change. Don't wait till the RC wears out to treat yourself to a new press, you might be waiting a long, long time.

    I use the Lee Turret the most, (an old three hole unit), and have had it since the early 90's. It's done many tens of thousands of rounds for me. Have two other Lee presses, too.
    But, I'm not prejudiced. I have an RC too, and some other blue press in storage, (not a Dillon). I can't remember what kind the blue one is. Haven't used it in quite some time.

    Have had a Lee Load Master close to 20 years, Dillon 550 about 5. I prefer the auto indexing.

    Lyman T-Mag 2 for pistol.

    Rockchucker for rifle.

    Not necessarily what I would purchase now, but these will certainly not wear out in the foreseeable future. They certainly do the job.
