I only put up 20rds of .45 Colt 260gr lswc yesterday, 5rds with each charge weight of 17.5gr, 17.0gr, 16.5gr, 16.0gr of 2400 powder. Just doing a little load development, 5rds is enough to determine point of impact vs point of aim with a fixed sight Vaquero.

I found that each case had to be handled four times. Once for decapping and repriming, once for charging, once for seating and once for crimping. On top of that, I had to wait for the scale to meter a charge and I also had to change out the dies four times. That means loading a hundred rounds meant handling them 400 times! A laborious process.

I didn't need the production of a progressive press, so I purchased a turret press. The difference is amazing. Now each case is handled only once. The charge is metered by a pro auto-disk powder measure that sits on top of the charging die. I can turn out a round in about six or seven seconds depending on whether or not I take a sip of coffee.

Anybody who is loading pistol ammo on a single stage press should seriously consider upgrading to a turret press.

I just last week finished loading 1059 rounds of .357 Mag; 800 one day and 200 the next. I used a Lee Pro 1000 and loaded all the 140 and 158 grain bullets I had as well as a quantity of 125 gr JHP and JSP. I only have 125 grain JHP/JSP left on hand.

I just fired some ammo I loaded in 2002 with no failures.

Welcome, I like doing my reloading in batches. I have a universal de-capping die(Lee) & do that 1st & then clean all the cases. I then re-size everything & then flare & prime in 1 step. Then the cases are ready to charge & seat the bullet. Having the cases flared & primed lets me do the final process when I am ready & this method works great for me. Everybody is different & that's OK
