Looking to get a progressive press for my pistols, 45 acp, .44 mag and special and .38 spec. and .357 mag. Not looking to do rifle cartridges as I don't mind using a single stage press for that.Was thinking a Dillion square deal.Anybody own one? Pros and cons? Or do you have another brand of press that you think is better?Any input would be appreciated... ;D
I have the 550B and I like it so far. I am only working rifle loads right now but the one I had previously was set up for 44Mag and 40SW. Unfortunately setting up was as far as I got before losing the press. I'm not sure how well it will work for them.
The warranty, last I checked, was if it breaks they fix it. No BS. No nothing. For life. The one downside for dillon is the overall cost. I love the interchangeable tool heads though. I hate having to reset dies every time I change calibers since I'm in testing right now. Try to get all of your conversion kits at once if you can afford it. Shipping will rape you so pretend your santa and check the list twice to be sure you got it all.
PS...Get a calendar with it

I have a buddy that has two square deals and he likes them. My problem with them is that they don't use standard dies. I have a 550b and have loaded 38 special, 45 acp and 223 progressively. I really like my 550b. I started out with a lee progressive press which is ok....but needs constant attention to keep it working right. I had bought a Hornady progressive press and returned it because it really just didn't work at all.
