Each manu of presses makes presses that excel in specific areas. Not one press will do every step of reloading perfectly. Because of this, you will always have trade offs. I've heard of complaints...

For me it's always been a case of what the brass look like before hand. If it's pretty clean to begin with, I'll decap. If it's something I wouldn't want near my dies, I tumble then decap.

many reputable smiths won't touch a Taurus and will give every excuse under the sun not to perform any work on them. Many aftermarket parts will work on them but do require fitting.

I never understood the need to push as close or beyond Saami specs for a given round. Yes you can push 38 super to velocities and energy of 9x23Win, but why? If the shortage comes from nobody's...

I use 147 gr Hornady XTP's for both 9mm and 38 super SD rounds. The bullet weight is a bit on the high side for a 9mm but out a short barrel it's about the best use. The 38 super really brings those...
