I started with a RCBS single stage for about two weeks. Moved to the Lee turret for 20 years. Now I use two Pro 1000s.

Single stage = 20 rounds/hour (rough estimate). Must replace the die for each stage.

My turret press using auto indexing = 100/150 rounds/hour. All dies are set and rotate with the auto index. Three or four pulls of the handle per completed bullet.

My Pro 1000 = 100 rounds in seven minutes. One pull of the handle does all three stages, one bullet per pull. It takes roughly 3 minutes to reload the primer tray, powder hopper and the case tubes. 600 rounds per hour is a doable number if you just want a massive amount of bullets made fast.

Hope this helps.
