Default What is your favorite piece of reloading equipment?

For me it is my Charge Master makes reloading hand loaded rifle rounds much easier.

I don't have one at the moment. However I do have a brand new Chargemaster Lite waiting to be unboxed. Once I've used it, I might change my mind.

Cannot afford Blue nor Green press I have to settle down with Lee press & dies. Had 3 red presses: Single, Turret and Auto Breech Lock Pro. I like Lee Turret Press most.

There are a lot of pieces I like a lot. Factory crimp dies, charge master, 550’s but that quick change setup makes so many things so much easier.


If I think... “gee, did I get a full charge in that last round?” I can literally have it pulled, measured and put back together in 2 minutes on my rockchucker.

By far my Mitutoyo caliper. I previously used the harbor freight calipers. Considering how much I measure, having a rock solid spot on caliper is worth the money

Which one are you using? I’m using a HF with a RCBS analog for backup. I’ve been thinking of a new caliper for years but don’t know enough to pick one. I’m willing to spend some money but don’t want to over buy or under buy.

The Harbor Freight works fine for my needs except it eats through batteries like a fat chick in a Twinkie factory.

DILLON 550 is the easy answer closely followed by the Lyman DPS 1200 and followed by the Lyman Tumler

.223 Worlds Finest Trimmer.

Much faster than the manual crank Lyman bench trimmer method... or even w/the power adapter.

It's a toss up between my Giraud trimmer and my Ponsness Warren 800 plus with hull feeder and hydraulic drive.

Turret and Breech Lock here. Love them, but the turret is getting really loose and old. I will probably get the same as I have all the ancillary equip and the new turret is built better.

I have single stages, but with extra heads all set up for different calibers and utility stuff, the Turret is way quick and handy.

I picked the Charge Master because when I load on a single stage press I can put the Charge Master on auto and charge a case and seat the bullet while the next charge is being thrown by the Charge Master. I like this method better then charging a full tray at a time.

No reason to hide. I have two Lee Pro 1000's, one for small primer rounds, and one for large primer rounds. Both are terrific. I love 'em.

If I had to pick only one press, though, I'd have to say my Lee Classic Turret Press, because it will do my rifle cartridges as well as my handgun cartridges. Not as fast as the Pro 1000's or other progressive presses, but it makes up for it with its versatility and ease of use/maintenance, while still providing good production speed.

Fortunately, I don't have to pick just one.
