I currently have an old CH Pistol Champ 3 stage press that I use to load 45 ACP and 38 Special and 357 Magnum. It does a great job with these loads but as anyone knows who uses the CH powder measure you are somewhat restricted with the powders you can use because of having to match up a particular bushing for a certain type of powder and there is not always a match for a particular caliber. I have been thinking of getting a different press for loading of my 9 mm's. Anyone have any recommendations on a good set including powder measure and accurate scale?? I have carbide dies for my CH and would want to get carbide dies for this new press. I have seen RCBS, Lee, etc and just don't know which ones hold up the best. Any help anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated. I know that CH is still in business with another company in Ohio who bought out CH's invetory. One of the guys in my club ordered the dies for 9 mm for his CH and had a load of problems with the belling die which also handles the powder charge. Had to have it machined to make it work as it was crushing the tops of his cases. I want to avoid this problem. Thanks. again. :-D

You talkin' about the guy that hangs out down at the Long Branch and hits on that Kitty girl? Or maybe that guy that sings those hippie songs?.....I think he spells his name dif'rent.

If you're just going to load handgun ammo, I would recomend the Dillon Square Deal. But, if you mix in rifle ammo and want to use all your dies, the RL 550 is the best one. I used to think that RCBS was the best choice also.....that is until I bought a Dillon. I lost some parts to my Sq. Deal when moving into the new house and they replaced them for free. It saved me around 50 bucks and I actually attempted to buy the stuff. A friend bought a used Dillon 450 and it was missing many parts. He placed an order with Dillon and they sent it for free. RCBS won't do that. Visit their web site and read up on them, you'll like them. :D
