Re: Best reloading press ??
I have two Bonanza CoAx presses, a Hollywood 12 station turret press, a Hollywood single station press, and a Sinclair arbor. The only action the Hollywoods get anymore is for bullet pulling. The RCBS collet bullet puller will not work with the coax. The Sinclair is in a drawer here and never sees any work. With two CoAx presses I do not have to switch the shell holders from large to small and reverse, and take a chance of loosing one of the shell holder coil springs. The presses set side by side on my loading bench and do not interfere with each other when loading...whatever. Also the handles(the coax is a downstroke press) are up and out of the way when not being used. The longest cartridge that I reload is the 30'06. The handle clears those dies with plenty of room to spare. The CoAx works well with Redding, Lyman, RCBS, Forster and CH dies. I have used/owned the CH press, RCBS Rockchucker and other presses of similar construction. For me, the Bonanza CoAx is the best press for my purposes.
