Time to upgrade

I am currently working with a single stage press and have decided to upgrade to a progressive press, I was looking at the dillon 550b, the rcbs 2000 and the hornady. So far the dillon is the most impressive. I dont care for the aps system that the hornady uses. But im not sure where to go with it from there, no one carries all 3 to get a side by side comparison so Im looking for any advice you guys got.

I swear by dillon but I read that the side by side comparison with price included favored the Hornady LNL. You can't go wrong with any of those choices.

Time to upgrade

When i went progressive i researched for a few months and quized friends with the two i narrowed down, Dillon and the LnL Ap.
Ones with the Dillons loved them , ones with the LnLA p loved thiers, i went with the LnL Ap and havent regretted it. I did so becuase Dillons lack of auto advance which i found to be a no brainer that it should have and couple other small things and the fact LNLAp comes ith 1000 free bullets.
I Liked that Dillons die platform that one can leave your dies in and change calibers fast but with bushings one can do it with the LNL Ap as well.
Dillon has excellent customer service and warrenty that my 3 Dillon friends have used and the 2 with LNLAp said they didnt know about Hornady becuase theirs hasnt broken nor mine.
I think youd be happy with either one.
P.S. The RCBC i found alot of people having timing issues with thier progressive.

thanks, everything Ive found about all three have narrowed it down to the lnl or the dillon. I havent read a single thing about the rcbs that really made me think that it was better than the other two in any shape or form.
