    Progressive Press

    I'm after a progressive press for .223 and 9mm in the future. Preferably a hornady but will look at Lee loadmaster or possibly a Dillon if it's not too expensive.

    Not interested in Lee pro 1000.

    Cheers

    Buy another cartridge activated thrower when you get a chance.
    Saves a bit of mucking around when changing from pistol to rifle.
    I always check the thrown charge on the first cartridge I load. It has not varied in .40 or .223 more than .1 of a grn over heaps of loading sessions.
    You could just lock it in and your away. I still can't help checking even tho I know it will be perfect.
    They are bloody accurate for what they are.

    Remove pistol cal shellplate, lock in your .233 dies and thrower and your loading .223 in seconds.
    I have a few extra bits I ordered off workshop innovation by accident for a new thrower.😆

    Is the thrower still accurate with extruded powders or am I better off changing to a ball powder for the .223?

    I have only used AP50-70, VIT N320 in pistol cals and BMII for my .223

    BMII goes well. No dramas but have not tried anything more course than those. 2206/08 and the like should go sweet. Big slow burning powders may have issues, I don't really know.
