1. what is the difference between single and progressive press?A single-stage press will do only one part of the reloading process at a time.
A progressive press can be set up to do ALL the stages in sequence on multiple catridges with each pull of the lever arm.
2. Then what is a turret press? Does it come in single and progressive version too?A turret press can perform all the functions of the reloading process, but does it one cartridge at-a-time.The turret can be turned manually or automatically with the pull of the lever arm:
3. what is auto-indexing?When the shell plate or turret is turned automatically with each pull of the lever arm.4. Final question, if budget is not a concern, what will be the best reloading kit THAT IS THE FASTEST that will last me a long time?Fo someone who's just starting out, the popular Dillon 550b would be fast and relatively safe.Dillon Precision
I'd still suggest that you first learn on a single stage like the RCBS RockChucker before moving to the progressive types.RCBS
