If you're talking about a progressive, consider the Hornady Lock n Load. Hornady has a free bullet offer where, if you buy that press, they'll send you 1000 free bullets. For instance, 1000 .45 XTP 185gr bullets. They retail for $20.99 for 100 at Grafs; 1000 is worth $209.90. You have to pay shipping which reduces the value by about $23, but still it's $186-worth of bullets.
And there are other bullets you can get instead.
You do have to add dies and shellplates, but the net effect is to get, in effect, a $186 or thereabouts discount on the press.
I have one, I love it. Loved the free bullets, too.
