This was my first Dillion press and the precision in the build of the press is perfect. I took my time and read the instruction manual on how to set it up and if you take your time you won’t have any trouble. When you install the shell plate and tighten the brass set screw it is a fine line between just a bit to loose and being set perfect. It took about 5 minutes to get it right but that was my first time on a Dillion press. One you get it set perfect you’ll know exactly what it should be when you do a conversion kit swap. Graf and Sons had it shipped out quick and it arrived quick. Thank you again for a super great experience at Graf and Sons.

If you want to have a little progressive press capability and still maintain the feel of doing one shell at a time, this is the press.
