    So...for a shooter that's averaging four or five thousand rounds of 5.56 per year and getting ready to start shooting a hell of a lot more 9mm(since I suck beyond belief with a handgun,) do you recommend I buy the 550 from you or the 650?

    Keep in mind I've never loaded a single round on any press in my entire life.

    I would think it best to discuss this verbally. Makes it easier to ask questions and provide answers in a short amount of time.

    However, either the 550 or 650 would work. The 550 is a little easier to set up. The 650 is more geared towards volume.

    The 650 and stuff is more expensive.

    The important thing is to start slow and work through the learning curve -- don't try and start pumping out 500 an hour or so. That will come once you feel comfortable with what you are doing.

    There are various sequences of case prep and stuff that people do for 223 and I am working on my own for 9mm as well. But getting started with the basics is a matter of time and learning.

    If you want to discuss your needs I'd be happy to chat with you. 888 534 9585 x4. I am normally around days (mountain time) starting late mornings. Today we have a family thing so will be out most of the day until after 3pm my time. But normally I am around and can chat about this if you would like.

    One thing I didn't see in the list is a swager. I know it's not a necessity, however I found when I started reloading my spent brass this weekend that I needed one.
