I've been loading everything, both rifle and pistol, for two decades on a single stage press. My current press is a Lee Classic Cast press, and by any standards it is a magnificent single stage press. It's heavy, large, and overly strong for any single-stage work, to include sizing brass, or re-working brass. If I can' t get it done on the Lee Classic, it's time for a machine shop.
However, I've been jonesing for something just a little faster for repetitive tasks like pistol ammunition. I don't need match-grade pistol ammo and making match-grade pistol ammo is simply too time consuming. So, I decided to step up to the 1970s and buy a turret press. The boys at Lee Precision sell a nice one, so I pulled the pin last week and ordered one of their turret presses. The brown truck of happiness brought it today.
There's a lot of stuff in there that I don't need, because I've already got all that stuff, but I'm happy to share wit my sons, who are beginning to reload. I'll be setting this up over the next several days, and go from batch processing of pistol ammo to linear processing of same ammo. I'm sure that it will speed up production considerably.
