    Well, I have all of mine on the benches;
    3 MECs (410, 28 and 20) on the shot shell bench
    2 RCBS Rock Chuckers
    1 PW Metalic II
    1 550-B

    I feel like I am forgetting something.

    I'll preference this comment by saying I've had a long day and probably to much to drink before going to bed. But what difference does it make how many presses anyone has? I've had 6 different presses since 1967 and now have 2. Shouldn't the question be more of a matter of how much you reload and or why you and what your reloads are supposed to accomplish? Or is this about bragging rights or adding to the number of post counts? I'm not trying to be mean hearted but rather I just never found this kind of thread meaningful to improving or understanding how to make better handloads. I've been more of a lurker than poster because I've never stopped learning. Reading through this thread taught me zero. If this comment gets me in trouble so be it, I'll just continue lurking and hopefully learning. I've learned a lot from this site and just felt the need to vent this opinion that how many presses ( rather than why a specific press or presses) doesn't teach me much. Of course some answers do that but just a few. Ill go to bed now and stop ranting.

    DaBoone, I'm not sure what the original OP intended with this thread, and you are right some of it is bragging rights probably, but one thing I have found interesting and somewhat valuable to threads such as these is learning what combinations of presses people have and also about presses I've never heard of before. I grew up in a Dillon only household and that was my only experience till adulthood when I started learning about RCBS, Lyman and Star. This forum and threads like this have exposed me to additional makes and models I had never heard about and to me that's knowledge I enjoy. If I see an odd pairing or unfamiliar model I have the ability to question the poster via post or PM which adds additional value.

    Not valuable to all but valuable to some. Kinda the point of a niche forum such as ours wouldn't you say? Just my 2 cents on the thread.

    Daboone, if it took you 465 posts to realize that this thread was going to teach you nothing, then you had too much to drink. Lay off the sauce brother LOL!!!

    Not all threads have to be serious and full of helpful information. Some are just for fun. This is one of those.
    Looking for an RCBS A2 with the removable bushing. I need it to complete my A series collection. Please let me know if you have one you want to get rid of. Thanks!

    Here's what I found interesting. Those of us with multiple presses are obviously tool junkies who are constantly looking for something new and different. That's the only justification for having so many different presses. I like tools and so, I have a lot of them

    Yep, and as previously stated, it's interesting how ones choice of presses progressed from their first to their latest.

    How many presses? I really don't know as I lost count a few years ago. Working on a full inventory now, but it is going to take a while.
    Heck, I added 4 presses Thursday, 2 Pacific Supers and two unknown shotgun. They might be Acme, maybe.

    I received 3 more yesterday, a Pacific Super Deluxe, a Redding Boss, and a RCBS Partner. That makes two Partners now and two Pacific Supers. My first Redding Boss, I like it! Might be buying more Reddings

    I think that I am in double figures with 3 RCBS Rock Chuckers, 2 Dillon 550B, 2 Lee reloader presses, PW 800, PW 375B and a Buchanan Precision.

    Actually surprised that I use almost all of them. Just need to figure out where to set up the last Rock Chucker and all will be in use. Having enough bench space helps.
