    Choice of reloader

    I want to start reloading. So many loaders to choose from. I plan to just fork out the money and get a good one that will last. I currently shoot .40s&w, 9mm, 6.8spc, .308 and .338lm.

    What company should I go with? I have been looking at the Dillion Rl 550b. Looked at a few others that I have seen being talked about on here.

    Money is not a big concern. Just want one that i can use and will be easy enough for learning and will take care of all my precision needs when i get to that point. thanks in advance.

    I'm in the same boat as you with just starting out but unlike you I've got more picky tastes as far as money goes. If that's not a concern it sounds like the Co-AX is liked by more than a few people that know their loading stuff. I'm on a bit more of a budget so I'm trying to see what I can get away with buying as far as stuff that still does what I need it to do, is reliable and doesn't cost a lot. So, I would say if your budget is a little more flexible do some research on the Co-AX options.
    I'm not fat, I'm tactically padded.

    Here's a list of everyone I've had good transactions with as either the buyer or seller: GTG List

    Personally for a single stage press I prefer either an RCBS RockChucker or a Redding Big Boss. I also have a Dillon XL650 for bulk stuff. But I do the match ammo on the single stage.

    My first press in 1972 was a RockChucker. Others have come and gone. But it's still bolted to the bench.
