Thanks for the info. I hadn't caught that at all!

I spend more time changing words back to the way I spelled them, darn spell correction or whatever it is is terrible. Can you turn it off? It constantly changes the word.

I'm not trying to run down your press set-up, Big Pete. If you only reload for one or two sizes then the progressive works great, but if you want to reload for several different calibers then the Co-Ax is hard to beat, especially with the universal shell holder. It all depends on your personal preference.


Oh, and grg, I think the Bonanza changed to Forester, and now maybe it's made by Frankford Arsenal? They all seem pretty similar.
I don't really disagree with you. I still use my T-Mag for rifle and test loads on handgun ammo. For many years I loaded on a RCBS jr and then a Lyman T-Mag. Still use the t-mag but I'll never get rid of the 550B. Dillon also sells a bare bones 550 press that can be used as a turret press, later changed to progressive if you wish. If you don't shoot much then the progressive is not right for you.

I do my normal reloading on a Lee 4 hole turret, case forming is still being done on my 70's vintage Rockchucker. Happy with both.

The only time use my progressive is when I am assembling prairie dog loads or massive amounts of handgun ammo. My only advise for a bench press is get and "O" press not a "C" type. Never used a turret press but they do sound inviting.

So how would you all describe a Forster... "O" or "C" or something else all together.

Here's how they describe it "sorta"......
Dual floating guide rods to help ensure perfect alignment 4) Because there is absolutely no torque on the head of the Co-Ax Press, long life is the rule rather than the exception. Due to the design of the linkage and pivots, all forces are in equilibrium whether the press is at maximum work load or at rest

Smooth, I will concede that a co-ax isn't either o or c, but a different world there.

Cool...Cool, that's why I like it.

. Been using the 4 hole for years and love it.
