I like to make a comment about this subject, which comes up time to time:  Guys like the press that they have, that's why they bought it. 
I like my Hornady  Lock N Load.

I realize this is an old thread; but to the chagrin of some, I will answer anyways. To do otherwise leaves similar information scattered through multiple threads.


I also use a Lee Classic Turret with the auto index rod. I have been giving some thought to the new Auto Breech Lock Pro, However, I think I will wait until it has been out for a while. In anther forum I read there were a lot of primer feed issues.

I have three 1050s, a Co-Ax, and a $25 Lee Reloading Press.
I really like the Hornady L-N-L and used it for several years (until my wife found a 1050 for sale for $800). The L-N-L went to my son.
For me, a progressive press must have at least 5 die stations (not a dedicated priming station and four other stations) and have auto-indexing. Manual indexing, to me, is asking for a moment of inattention and either not charging a case or double charging a case. YMMV, but I take MY safety seriously.
Die stations, at a minimum, are:
1) sizing (with priming often on the down-stroke)
2) combining case expansion, case mouth flaring, and powder dispensing using a Lee, Hornady, or Dillon measure with appropriate powder-through expansion insert in the powder die
3) RCBS Lock-Out die to verify correct powder height in case
4) Inspect powder column in case and Seat
5) Crimp
If you must have a case collator, get the Dillon 650. If you want to stop worrying, get the 1050 and be done.

Rockchucker, Redding T-7 Turret, and Hornady Lock-n-Load Progressive.
All three have their uses for various things I do. I wouldn't part with any of them and feel that I truly "need" all three.
