Re: 45 ACP

Any of the Dillon presses will serve you well. Their customer service is unmatched and in the event you wish to sell it later to upgrade you will get your money back. With some of the Dillon presses you would also be able to load rifle cartridges. My Dillon 650 has well over 100k rounds thru it and I wouldn't trade it for any other brand

Dillon Square Deal B. You can buy it set up for one caliber and a second caliber conversion was about $85. They were about $400 new.

You can find them one E-Bay but they are usually selling for the cost of a new one.

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

Re: 45 ACP

I've been using a single stage press for everything, rifle and handgun since I started reloading almost 24 years ago.

If you have the money, getting a Dillon progressive press is the one you want to go with. However, if I have $500-$1000 dollars to spend, I'm going to spend it on another gun or buy reloading components (bullets, powder, primers, etc).

Re: 45 ACP

Another vote for the Square Deal..

Have loaded thousands of .45 ACPs with nary a hiccup...have another SD set up for small primers...

Nothing better for the $ in a progressive handgun press, IMO...

After reading your post I got to thinking. I have had my 45 ACP Square Deal B for over 15 years. I don't think I made one adjustment to the press in all that time. I occasionally check the powder drop but it has not moved. They are a great press!
