    Mine was a Lyman Turret that I got in a kit in the late 70's. Soon thereafter upgraded to a Rock Chucker.

    LYMAN Comet, bought at gun show 1967-8. $8 BUCKS I think. Replaced it with a LYMAN Spartan and then a RCBS RockChucker. Gave the Comet to a friend to get him started.
    Happiness is a Warm GUN & more ammo to shoot in it.

    I started with a Lee Challenger press in the early 90's. Sold it a couple years later when I upgraded to a Hornady Projector. Still have the Hornady in storage.

    Within a couple of years of each other I learned shotshell loading on a MEC 600 Jr (20 ga) at the home of a friend and metallic on a TruLine Jr (38 Spl) given to my dad and me by his brother in law. I still have the TL Jr and inherited the MEC on the passing of my friend. I still load 20 ga on the MEC, and the TL Jr still gets used for a variety of calibers for which I have those special little dies. I own about a dozen plus other presses, but neither of those is likely to be going anywhere else any time soon.

    The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it's still on my list.

    Hornady 5 Station Progressive and I still use Hornady.
    I agree with Reddirt62, better off starting at the top. Saves money & time.

    Redding #7 c frame bought new in the 60's for under $15 new. Still my favorite press. One stroke of the handle either up or down completes the stroke of the ram.
