    I lovingly create my handloads one at a time on my RCBS JR3. Admittedly it is sort of a PITA to load masses of .223 on it, but....quality over quantity for me.

    I don't know about the 2000 but of the progressives I've seen, I think the Hornady Lock-N-Load is the best. I owned one for a while but I wasn't using it and sold it. Now I'm thinking about buying one again. I spent a large part of today loading 100 .45LCs on the RC. I know they are all perfect but could have done hundreds on the progressive.

    I like the LnL because of the retainer spring design that helps hold the cases in place, the powder cop die, the case feeder and how that works and the best feature they have is the Lock-N-Load feature with the sleeves for the dies. Once the die is set in the sleeve and adjusted, it can be left in the sleeve. They drop in the top and you rotate the sleeve to lock the die down in place. It can already be set from the last time you used it. No adjusting. Rotate in reverse to pull it out.

    The only way caliber changes could be any easier is having another press set up. There's a two part youtube video that's really good if you want to check it out.

    Here it is. This guys got it set up real nice. He starts cranking them out in PT II.

    The only issue some people have is the primer feeder sometimes snaps if it gets caught up by debris. If I get another one, I would probably have several of those on hand.
