Lyman® T-Mag II Expert Reloading Press
Close to perfect
I have had this press only for a short time and so far have only loaded .45 acp on it. I just got another press head, and will start reloading .38spl / .357 mag.
6 station - allows me to use a dedicated decapping die along with a Factory Crimp Die, and a bullet puller die if necessary too.
It's built like a tank, This will last your lifetime and you kids and their kids too, most likely.
The rotation pins included interfere with the operation of the handle in some positions. You have to remove the pin and bring it to the other side of the press. Luckily, the pin hole is 3/8 of an inch, and lynch pins are readily available. (1 5/8 worked for me)
I threaded a lynch pin, and drilled and tapped an old track ball ball to make a handle that while shorter still allows easy operation.
I installed the primer w/priming tube parts for the press. The way they're designed, they can't be left on the press all the time. They interfere with movement. This isn't a problem, but finding a long small box to hold the parts has been a challenge.
I also feel that you don't get real good feedback of the primer bottoming in the primer hole. This isn't on every installation, but often enough that you find yourself checking each and every one to ensure they're properly installed without crushing them.

The T-Mag turrent press has performed very well. I haven't had the press long but I have loaded three different calibers. The press was easy to set up with only one problem. The lever didn't want to start into the press. I had to find a fine thread 5/8" tap before I could get the lever to screw into the press.
Everyhting else has been what I expected
