I've been reloading almost all of my own ammo for the past 5 or 6 years. I can't imagine having to pay retail price, for as much as I shoot.

Does anyone else here reload? Is anyone interested in it, but has questions?

Yup, started out by loading probably the most involved and difficult rounds I can think of. Forming the case and all. Here's one next to a .22LR. Heck, I could almost use the .22 as the primer. ;)

Honestly I have 2 progressive and 1 single stage press. For 9mm progressive is the only way I have found to make it truly cost effective with the price of 9mm the last few years. I use a hornady lnl ap press setup for 9mm, a lee progressive setup for 45 auto and a single stage for almost all rifle rounds. Keeps me efficient with my time.

I wish I understood what you just said
Haha. Well first of all I fixed the typos which should help. Secondly I would say start with a good single stage press. It's a great way to learn the steps and will always be useful for precision rounds later on if you upgrade to a progressive for handgun rounds

I recently upgraded my 1050 with a Mark 7 Autodrive. No more pulling the handle for me.

I processed about 10K pieces of 9mm last weekend.
