In surfing through, I decided that I would toss my list into this mix as well:

I use a Dillon 550b for my mass reloading jobs such as .45 ACP, 9mm, and .223.

For hunting I have 2 Lee presses, 1 old turret style that I have had for years and 1 single stage press. They work great for my hunting loads where I am measuring and remeasuring. For priming my hunting rounds I use a hand primer so I can feel how well I seat it, check to see if I need to swage the pocket, etc.

My powder measures are either Lee or RCBS. My Lee is set for my .300 Wby and I don’t mess with it. I have 1 RCBS with the pistol cylinder thing and 1 for rifle. The pistol is set for .44 mag, but the other one for rifle changes between 30-06, 8 mm, and 30-30. I went with multiple measures to make things easier for me while reloading. The less I have to change around for each caliber the better.

My dies are most RCBS, but I do have a Hornady die for my 9mm. They are just what I ended up with and have used for years. No real thought into buying them.
