Good to hear from you. For pistol shooting, you want a progressive press. The annniversary kit is single stage, and would be a good starter, but you'll soon tire of it and upgrade to a progressive.
The Lee Loadmaster is probably the best "budget" progressive for the money.
Beyond that you get in the $400-$500 range, and then the Dillon SDB or Dillon 550 are probably the best for the money. These are great presses, and if you can save up for a few months and get one, you won't regret it.
I have a handfull of loads in .40 and 9mm that I like. What are you shooting these days?
Hey Steve. I don't know if you remember me, but I have met you a few times (bought a couple of glock mags and helped you out at the UDPL match you ran two last month or so).
I'm going to get a reloader for Christmas and birthday. I have looked at the Lee Anniversary because it's so much cheaper. Should I stay away from it? I have also seen the Lyman, RCBS and Hornady single stage presses. You have any suggestions? I just bought the Lyman reloading handbook and I thought I would try loading some of the suggestions in there. I know you shoot a Glock 35 at least sometimes. What loads work for you that are on the lighter side? Also, where/how do you buy your components here locally to get the best deal?
Sorry to bug you, I just know you are a great local source for this info.
