To be perfectly honest, I think the 0.380 is one of the easiest rounds to reload. I've loaded more 45s than I'd like to admit, along with 9mm, 38 super, 38 special, .223, and .308. The worst one...

I'm not using small base dies.

I have so much brass, I don't need to screw around with .556, which is thicker brass which also means higher pressure if using the same load.

Out of the 2 you mention, I'd buy the 650. I have both and the 650 wins hands down. The 1050 really isn't needed unless you plan on using military brass. No benefit and no lifetime warranty.
