Seeking suggestions on progressive press
So I have been thinking about buying a reloading setup for a while and wanted to ask you all since I have lurked here for a while.
I have about 750$ to spend (maybe more if it makes a huge difference)
I want to reload 308 for my dpms 308 (will have to crimp since semi) and then 9mm/40/.45 for my handguns.
I have a few AR-15 if I wanted to reload down the road I might also.
I am looking at a progressive one because of the quantity of ammo I want to load.
With 5 kids under 9, while I have a wooden bench and area all setup and ready in my garage, leaving unfinished ammo isn't a safe option. I prefer having an hour or two at night once they are all in bed to load what I want for that night.
So my question is what kit or non kit should I look at. I will need a tumbler also as having the ability to turn it on and walk away while doing daddy stuff is needed to help take lube off the brass.
Right now I think I'll pass on a RCBS Charge Master for my 308 loading but down the road I may pick one up.
Any recommendations on which kit to get or not to get as well as necessary tools (primer cleaners/etc). I have no preference to blue or red systems :) just looking for a good investment that will last for many years as my boys continue shooting with me.
I have some experience from my uncle and his 3 single stage lee presses. He is meticulous in his loading (books/notebooks/measurements/etc). Has loaded amazing 243 for me that has killed many deer with ease.
While I don't mind a single stage, I don't have the space to layout everything in stages or the time to sacrifice.
If you have any other questions ask away and I'll answer if I can :) will be starting from scratch.
