Even those who do, often supplement their progressives with a single stage or turret press. Such presses are handier for loading small batches of ammo for handgun hunting or for experimenting with different components. Some competitors who load all their practice ammo on a progressive prefer a turret press for match ammo, so they can closely monitor every step of the reloading process. This ensures every round has a primer properly seated and every case contains powder. n dave anderson 66 WWW.AMERICANHANDGUNNER.COM • MARCH/APRIL2011
