Sounds like you have thought this through. T-7 is a great press. Convenience of the turret is die setup. Not much faster then the SS. You could do a bushing system on the Hornady or add it to the RCBS. No more die setup like that either. But no open front like you want.
You may want to consider a Dillon 550 BL or RL. Both are left hand friendly.
T7 is the nicest Turret. LCT is not as nice but a lot faster. I don't find my left hand hits the rod on my LCT.
