The way you look at amortizing the cost of the press is: The first round out is the entire cost of the press, the 2nd round out is half the cost, the 10th round out is 1/10 the cost, and so on, and so, the 100,000th round is 1/100,000 the cost........

The cost goes to near zero after hundreds of thousand of rounds. And Dillon presses are forever, so it's only consumables that count. And no one saves money by reloading, they spend the same amount as they would on new ammo but get more rounds out of it.

I've had my old 550 since 1986 and see no reason to replace it. I'm only running about 18,000 rounds a year now anyway. Got a Square Deal as match product in 2001 and run that as a backup (for pistol). Many of my younger shooting friends run 1050's with Mr. Bullet feeders and drive high end high performance cars. I guess my 08' Scion Xb matches my 550.....
