I have no experience with Hornady presses, but I can heartily recommend Dillon stuff. Quality and great customer service.

I am surely slanted as I have used Dillons since they were first out, choose.........DILLON!
Their seldom needed customer service is first rate and the products are the same. I have a 550B and couldn't be happier. I load for several calibers and really haven't replaced anything if ten years. I have no idea what the price difference between the two is but I can surely state that the 550B is bulletproof, and produces great reloads.

One recommendation.......buy the DILLON dies, they work better than say standard RCBS dies. They are made for a progressive.

Buy a Dillon! I have a 650 and would definitely recommend it. You can see pics of my press with my homemade solution to the electric casefeeder at the www. below.
Also at the tread below that I posted titled "Poor Mans Casefeeder"

I have a Hornady Pro-Jector, which I believe is the predecessor of the Loc& Load. My next progressive will be a Dillon. The Hornady leaves MUCH to be desired.

I've had both the Hornadys and the dillon 550. Both have great service. I sold my dillon and now have two Loc'n Loads. NO Regrets. It has a case activated powder drop and an extra station for a taper crimp.

I can't talk about the press but I can tell you I like the Lock N Load bushings. I use them on my RCBS press. They allow me to change dies very quickly! The only thing I don't like about them is there should be a set screw on the bushings and a better way to screw the adapter into the press would be nice as well. But overall I have been very pleased with them.
