poppy5 ,

If you'd explain how the 900 fails to suit your needs , maybe someone can recommend a press that might better suit your needs --- operating a press at a lower rate is usually the answer to most dilemas --- other than watching the primer which is still PROBABLY the number 1 pitfall in reloading .

If speed is of no concern you probably do not shoot enough to justify reloading. Buy Top Guns, Estates etc and be happy.

IF you enjoy making ammo and don't care about production rate, then get a MEC 650 or Sizemaster. They are slow but get the job done.

If you want a true progressive, the PW 800+ is a very good machine.

About as good as it gets fore the money involved. But then again I am a little bit prejudiced on P W machines. For the money a used machione will last longer than you do.
And Whiz is selling one of them on the page that is in top shape.

As I said in an earlier post, I like my Dillon, great company to deal with. I own a 550, a 650, and a sl 900, wouldn`t trade any of them.

I have a 650 MEC and it does everything I need at this point in time. Have loaded about 7000 rounds on it since I started back in November of last year. It was used when I got it and still has a lot of life left in it.

Picked up a used 600 Jr. for 20 gauge along with 5 bags of AA wads and 2 bags of Fed wads all for $15! I loaded 100 shells on it today and after a little adjusting it loads great. Since I don't shoot that much 20 gauge it will probably work just fine for everything I ever need it to do. It is considerably slower than my 650 though!

Look around there are bargains to be found in pawn shops all the time.

Though in the minority, I'm a fan of Hornady - Like their Apexs and 366.
