    I am sure this has been asked a million times but I am doing a survey. Seems that on another forum there is a real bias towards one brand. As this forum is much larger I decided to poll here to get a better idea.

    This is not a which one is best, but what you actually use. For handguns and rifles no shotguns



    Yaa. took me three tries to get this work:eek:

    Some of mine aren't listed:

    Dillon 550
    RCBS Rock-Chucker (from 1975 when I started)
    Redding Ultra Mag (For when I discovered .45-100 (2.6”) was a PITA with the Rock-Chucker)
    Ponsness Warren 375C (20, 12, and 10GA)
    Ponsness Warren 900 Elite (12GA)

    I currently use a pair of Lee's (a Challenger and one of their small C-frame presses).

    I have full intentions of migrating to a Hornady LnL progressive (and probably another steel framed single stage for rifle) but I'm really tight on space right now and am saving for a down-payment on a house anyways. Once I make that move I'll have more room and even though I'll have less money overall, I'll be in a position where I can at least be spending some of my extra income rather than saving :).

    I use 3 presses all Lee. The Classic Turret, Classic Cast and Hand Loader. Do most of my pistol and rifle on the Turret, the Cast does bullet sizing and 12 ga brass shot shells with the hand press used at the range for mostly decapping.

    40 year old RCBS here. But I don't load massive quantities, just enough to have a few hundred on hand at all times.

    I use a Rock Chucker and a Reloader Special for metalic. And for shotshell I have Mec's. Nothing fancy or expensive, but they are all I need for my shooting needs.
