I started reloading when I was 12 years old under the guidance of my uncle. That Christmas my parents bought me a Pacific Deluxe reloading set. Being 62 now, I have since replaced a few of the components like the scale and powder thrower but I still use that old Pacific press. It is built like a tank and will likely never wear out.

Sweet!. I started handloading when I was 12 with my dad, by the time I was 15 I was loading my own without help. I am now 42 and the RCBS Rockchucker that I have was my dads, the one I learned on, lots of good ole memories with that old press. The Rockchuckers are built like a tank as well.

Most of my re-loading is done on one of two RCBS, Jr. presses. For full length re-sizing of magnum cases i use an RCBS Rockchucker press.

Rock Chucker here as well.

I have looked at progressives but I just do not shoot/reload enough to justify one. 50 - 100 rounds is pretty typical for a reloading session for me and that yields plenty of ammo for my needs.

Most of my loading is done on my Lyman T-Mag, it's like having a dedicated press for every die. I also use a Lee C-frame press for sizing bullets and expanding case mouths.

I use a Rockchucker for my rifle reloads,
a Dillon 450 for my pistol reloads,
a single stage Honey Bair for my 12 ga hunting loads,
and I have 4 Hornady/Pacific 366 progressive loaders (12 ga, 20, 28, and .410) for shotshell target reloading.
