    I have 3 permanently set for loading the caliber I shoot the most, two single stage are on removable mounts to use as needed, with a couple of presses bought because of the fantastic price being asked.

    Dillon: Square Deal B, 550, 650
    RCBS: Rock Chucker II, Jr 3

    The 650 seldom loads anything but .40, for my USPSA gun but contemplating getting a .223 conversion for it.
    The 550 has conversions for almost any caliber I shoot but I find it more time efficient to load my rifle hunting loads and large caliber, small volume pistol rounds like .44 MAg and .45 Colt on the RC II. No towrth the time to set up a progressive for less than 100 rounds or so.

    The 550 was purchased new in 1991. The 650 is about 12 years old and I'm the second owner. The rest are well seasoned and all run perfectly.

    Two Dillon 550 that I converted from 450s - one each stay set up for large and small primers so I don't have to fool with changing the primer feeds. I have left them both manual powder and primer to help prevent train-wreck jams. One SDB in .45 ACP that is knee deep in cobwebs. My old, old, old RCBS JR and a Pacific compound leverage, for single station chores like bullet pulling, push sizing, primer pocket swaging etc. Two Lee shotshell mashers (12 & 20) and a MEC progressive in 12 ga. And a bottle capper I found in my late uncle's junk that I intend to repurpose from sealing home brew to doing 'whatever' with ammo. Now, what presses I [I]want[I] would be a way different thread...

    Well at this time I have about 60(metallic) or so. Always in flux. I buy a lot of stuff from estates etc . I currently use 47 of the presses including the shotshell presses. But a couple are dedicated to both metallic and shotshell... mainly the Deitmeyers. I also have about 40 or so shotshell presses. Some of them I have to get gone. Never use 'em. I mainly use the Spolars for most of my shotshell loading.

    1- Rockchucker
    2- Dillon 550b (which began life as a 450 and I've done all the upgrades to make it a 550)
    3- Mec 650 Junior in 12 gauge

    These take care of all my needs. I use the Rockchucker for all rifle rounds and some pistol rounds which I don't load much of. I use the Dillon to mass produce pistol ammo.

    Only have three.
    An RCBS RockChucker that gets used a lot. Thousands and thousands of rounds each year.
    A single-stage Lee press that hasn't seen the light of day in decades.
    A Lee 1000 that simply doesn't work well. It has resided in a box since the day I bought my RockChucker many years ago now.

    I really need to get a shot shell reloader and a Dillon or Hornady progressive for handgun reloading. Reloading in 500-1000 round batches is just too time consuming on a single-stage keeps getting in the way of reloading, time-wise.

    too close to Chicago
    2 Dillon 550Bs, one for large and one for small primers.
    1 Redding T-7 turret with an extra turret
    1 RCBS Reloader Special single stage

    The Dillons are on strong mounts, and the other two share a RockDock as needed. Usually the turret press sits in the RockDock, the RS moves around between two benches depending on what I need it to do.

    If I came across a used RockChucker, I'd add that to my collection. I just like that press, and foolishly sold one years ago in a weak moment.

    I have 14, however 2 are loaned out, I just got a walnut hill so I guess it counts but its only going to do swaging. My excuse is that my kids will need there own to learn on 😉.
