I recommend the RCBS is it's manual index operation. After purchasing the auto index version, I fiddled for over a month to try and get the indexing operating smoothly. While it was doable for 45ACP, the indexing still seemed too syncopated and fast for smaller calibers. I decided to remove the index cam, and install the manual indexing star for my shell plates. I was able to operate the press much smoother, recover from mistakes much easier, and ultimately turn out more ammo. I don't think the manual indexing really slows me down any at all. If it is a bit slower you gain your time back by having less mistakes as with the auto index. Big Pro's for this press include: the quick change die plate, stationary powder measure, cast iron frame, and low profile/small footprint. Cons: auto index can be touchy. (I have ordered the calibration pins from RCBS to see if I can improve it any further). APS strips can easily wear (however RCBS will replace these free of charge), case ejection is touchy, ...

Pros:  loads lots of cartridges in a short ammount of time
Cons:  took some time and patience to tweak
Would recommend:  yes

This press took a while to tweak. I understand this is the nature of progessive presses. They are machines with lots of precision moving parts. Be patient and get help from rcbs if needed. Once you have it set up you can really crank out the cartidges. This is really nice for handgun or defensive rifle cartriges where a precision powder drop is not your main objective. It is way faster than using a scales, powder measure, and a single stage press like you might do on a precision or hunting rifle. Good product but there is a lot going on with a progessive press so be patient.
