First- What's your budget? And what are you loading (calibers)?

For pistol I would say Dillon for rifle I could go Hornady or Dillon. Both have strong points and weaknesses

I have been reloading for 30 years cost is not an issues.

I want to buy quality equipment that wont break down or have design flaws.

I need to shoot more and reload less time.

I all ready have a small pistol progressive press that fills my needs.

Well, I think all products have design flaws that are corrected by aftermarket parts. I looked around carefully and chose Dillon as someone who will load a ton of pistol and rifle.

It would help if you mentioned what rifle rounds and how many different one's you will be loading for. If you have multiple rounds to load for, I'd go Hornady Lock N Load (LNL). It is a very good progressive press with very simple caliber conversions and converted very quickly. The Dillon 1050 is awesome, but takes a lot of time for caliber conversions. If you have 1 rifle round to load for, Dillon 1050.

Why Dillon? I have 10 or more cartridge's I can not buy a 650 for each one.

There's about 30 different routes you can go. You can get 30 different answers until we know what you have, how many rounds you want to load, and how precise you want them to be. Until then, no one can help you figure out what press or direction you can go.

I have 15 rifle cases between me and my sons. I have a Garand, sa93, and gew 98's I would like to 1k for each.
My hunting rifles .5k or more. I have a large supply of consumables to reload, I have been buying for 30+ years.
I expect my ammo to be accurate but I don't need every thing in bench rest accuracy. I have 3 single stage press.
I hope this help you Chad pm if you need more information

550 or 650 with caliber conversions and be done with it.

I have loaded (lots of) 9, 45, 38 Spl, 357 Mag, 44 mag, 223, 308, 30-06, 300 WM... and probably others... on my 550 and have zero complaints.

For my precision and hunting rounds I even weigh every powder charge and still use the 550 (w/ powder hopper removed).

If money is no issue, and you want to be able to convert to do all rounds, then get a dillon super 1050 with a forcht autodrive (not PW).
I've attached a link of one of our 1050's running full tilt. Titan Super 1050 2500 RPH .223
