Quick change dies on a single-stage press.

I'm looking to purchase a new single-stage press and have been considering one with that gives me the ability to change dies quickly. Hornady make one with bushings and Foster/Bonanza makes one that changes dies quickly also.

Has anyone had any experience with these I would like to know the pros and cons of these presses?

Re: Quick change dies on a single-stage press.

i have a forster and it is the best press i ever used.the only thing i watch for is on lg rifle decapping ,once in a while a primer hangs up in the drop tube to the waste container,if i would just take the few seconds to spray some hornady black can cleaner in the tube,that should fix it. you will like it [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

You may have trouble with the Foster/Bonanza if the dies you are using such as redding compet. or S type are long.... the handle on the foster won´t pass over them.
