    I guess I have one and half. The Lee classic press and the Lee hand press. Guess I would count the Lee hand Press as a half. More often then not I use the Lee hand Press mostly now.

    I own a Lee 'Classic cast' press, a Lee 'Load master' progressive I don't use', two Lyman 'Spartan' presses.

    My favorite is the Lee classic cast press I bought just so I could use the big diameter dies(1 1/4" dies). I inherited two Lyman Spartans and the Lee progressive. I have lots of die sets/plates and bits and pieces for the Lee loadmaster progressive but have not set it up for my use yet.

    The old Lyman presses I do use on occasion and need to get some more shell holders in my commonly loaded calibers so I could set-up and run all three manual presses at once....sort of a 'poor-boy' progressive set-up.

    1 Redding T7 Used on the bench - Rnd count 50,000-100,000
    2 Mec shotshell loaders Stored under the bench Rnd count 0 in the last twenty years
    1 Dillon 650 Used on the Bench - Rnd Count 25,0000 +
    1 RCBS Pro 2000 Used on the Bench Rnd Count 10,000 +/-
    1 RCBS RC Mobile Set up for R&D at the range Rnd Count 5000 +/-

    If I could only have 1 it would be the Redding T7, I would sure miss the Rnd count on the Dillon, but the Redding is built like a tank nothing ever breaks on it. I would have to have my Dillon powder dropper mounted on the Redding though.

    I've added 2 more to my bench and given one away. If anyone has a priming assembly for the Smart Mark XIV i'd be interested.

    Oops apparently I voted before I got my LnL, make that 3.

    Thanks Yall!

    Just upped my count to 3 with the addition of a 1975 RCBS JR3. Needs to be beat blasted and painted but in good shape other than that.

    2 Stars and 2 loadmasters but I want a Dillon 1050. Actually I really want a fully automated set up. No wait I want to buy Federal (the whole company) so I can give up loading my own and take my stock dividends in match ammo. Well that sounds unlikely, so yeah just a new 1050 for now, but with a bullet feeder and a case feeder and a cool table and and and

    Dillon 550-my main squeeze! I'm simply in love with the volume and modularity.
    Spar-T-Have it set up for 2 calibers out at the farm for if I get bored
    Rock chucker 2- Man....I like using this to push through size
    Lee C press- size smaller stuff, 9mm and whatnot
    Lee hand press-----EVERYONE should have at least 1 of these, especially now that they take the quick change die collets!!!

    Not nearly enough (according to me) ... way too many (according to my wife) ...

    I may have passed my "Best Before" date, but I haven't reached my "Expiry" date!

    Just added 1 more to the collection. I found a RCBS Jr press at the local auction and couldn't pass it up along with a set of 9mm dies for $40
