I will agree that a rockchucker is a top of the line single stage press. But for that price you can have a dillon 550 a cheap caliper and a beam scale.

If all you load is rifle it will be fine. I would rather piece together my own though.

There is only 60 dollar difference between a square deal and a 550. With the square deal you are limited to some handgun rounds only.

In a bare minimum setup I came up with $114. Please correct me if I am wrong.

You don't need to use Dillon dies with the 550. Granted I did not add in dies in the 60.00.

Sure, I was just trying to keep all things equal by staying with manufacturer brand parts as I imagine that is what most people would do.

I use RCBS, and Lee dies mostly. I have one set I can't red the stamped names but it's .38 and really were just given to me 22 years ago. I've used them to load 500 rds other than that they sit...

My latest .45 dies are Lee Carbide with the FCD. I don't always use the FCD other than to knock the flare back just a tad.

Going forward I plan to replace my non carbide dies with carbide to remove my case lube process.

bottom line IMO it don't matter other than price:acceptableperformance

Carbide dies for pistol reloading are always the better way to do the job. However, a little light spray with Hornady One Shot case lube makes the process go much smoother, even with carbide dies.

I used carbide dies dry for many years but since I started using One Shot, I'll never go back to doing it that way again.

There is no need to wipe the lube off the loaded round. Just shoot 'em.

Carbide dies for rifle are pretty expensive and would probably still require lube. For precision rifle, all I do is resize the neck and I use a little Dillon Case Lube just to make it go a little smoother.

For .223 bulk ammo, I am using the Dillon dies and Dillon Case Lube.

How many calibers are you planing on reloading?
What calibers?
How many rounds do you want to load a week?

Well its a little more than that. Plus, the square deal is already set up ready to go out of the box. It is a great choice for someone who only wants to reload one pistol caliber. I chose the 550 so I can reload more than just .45, but the square deal is a great deal.
