Dillon is the progressive bench mark everyone else tries to get to. Back that up with a lifetime no BS warranty, tough to beat. I've been loading on a 550 for 25yrs+ & a 650 for about 2yrs. If you must have a case feeder, the 650 is the tool. If you just want a good, simple progressive that does everything from 380 to 45-70, then the 550 is tough to beat.
"Given adequate penetration, a larger diameter bullet will have an edge in wounding effectiveness. It will damage a blood vessel the smaller projectile barely misses. The larger permanent cavity may lead to faster blood loss. Although such an edge clearly exists, its significance cannot be quantified".
