I started with a progressive, but it is easier if you start with a single stage to get familiar with the basics of reloading. I say this because I had to play catch-up when I started with a progressive and had all kinds of questions and problems because I was a beginner, if you know somebody that can help you it would be easier, however if you don't it will probably be trail and error for you when you get started. but you will survive most likely, just read your load books and read them again, use safety and wear safety glasses, you are already choosing a good company in my opinion. the 550 is good and the carbine dies are the best IMO, but go with the XL650, it will load a lot of rounds, that's what I use and its great.

ill defiantly have to check out that website larry thanks. wag i will have to take it slow but i got a week to load 600 rounds so i can do like 150 a day at a slow pace until i get the hang of the machine. bob/mo i figured id make lots of errors but ill learn. is the xl650 really worth the extra money?

for the amount you want to load, yes the 650 is worth it because it auto indexes and the 550 you have to manually index it, they are both pricey, the darn accessories are what cost. Wag has a go point watch the you tube video's, just don't watch the one with the guy drinking bourbon while he explains the machine. if you get the 650, pm me and I will give you some good tips....have fun
