    If you are going to be shooting a lot of it get yourself a Dillon 650. You will load 600-700 an hour. Single stage is very slow even with a powder thrower.

    Workshopinnovation has the best prices I have seen. Rusa reloading has the best prices for projectiles.

    Yeah it really depends how you value your time and what you plan on shooting. It costs me 19c to load a 9mm and i get some bloody cheap components. Buy 1000 for $370 and sell brass for 10c it costs you 27c saving 8 cents. Takes about 15k rounds just to pay back your press and that's not accounting for time.

    The only reason is see to roll your own is for tuning loads, like running light recoiling loads for production, or hot minor like i do for Open.

    I got my lee 9mm dies on eBay for about $30 shipped, but workshop innovations are awesome. If you're looking at a progressive press down the track id maybe advise not to get lee because the bodies are a bit short and with no taper into the die don't feed on a progressive as reliably
