    Very common and available here is Dillon brand. Models depend on how many it can reload per hour on average.

    -550B is a non prograssive model. basic manual operations, can reload appx 550 ammo per hour.
    - 650B is a prograssive model, auto brass shell feed, can reload appx 650 per hour average.
    - 1050B is also a progressive model, auto brass shell feed and faster, can reload 1,050 per hour average.
    Prices appx. 550B around PHP 38K , 650 B around PHP 70K & 1050 around PHP 120K, all comes with 45 cal die.
    It's available in True Weight and Stronghand.
    - There some people who's selling their sets, you migth be interested.
    My prices are way back last quarter of last year.
    There are still other items you need to reload, power scale, bullet fuller and primer plate.
    Just a reminder, it requires licensing from FED.

    Dillon is great as they give a lifetime warranty even for certain small parts. My experience is that they will replace it and will actually send the part thru courier straight to you as long as you reported it. The difficulty of course is the red tape in the country if the part you are requesting is a bit large or is distinguishable as a reloading part

    Dillon would be the best choice. Stronghand also have Hornady LNL Progressive Press if you want to be different. :supergrin:

    any dillon press would be good...i started of with a 1050 right away because the guy who taught me how to reload blew up his primer tube on the upstroke on a 650..a 1050 does everything(sizing ,priming,seating,crimping etc) on a downstroke at maganda ding sampayan ng damit pag masikip ang space ng apartment mo:thumbsup:

    The Dillon Square Deal B is a progressive reloader as well. There is no need to turn the shellpate by hand (auto indexing) unlike the 550 which is manual indexing. Kaya lang hindi kasya yung ibang brands na loading dies, you have to use Dillon dies specific to square deal B. Only pistol rounds available.

    ganda ng set up mo Ogie. I am still using a 550. My Benny Hill Fat free has been ultra reliable Ogiebb. Out of 2,000 rds the last 2 months ,only 1 malf and it was ammo related.
