Sorry for bringing up an old post.

I do have a Dillon550 today and are about to buy a single stage press.
My choice are between the Co-ax and Redding Boss/Big Boss.

I use only Redding Type S - Match die set (competition seater die)
Cal. i use are: .6BR/ .243/ .6,5x55/ .6,5-284/ .300winmag

I will not use any bigger than .300winny.

May someone here confirm that this Redding Comp.dies will work in a Co-ax press?
Do anyone know if Forster have made and extension handle at this time? I did not find any on the web site.
If not i will buy a Redding press.

Yes, the Redding dies will work in a Co-Ax press. You will have to use the Forrester rings for the dies though. As for the handle extension, I dont know if they make a longer handle or not, they do make a shorter one though. I cant imagine why one would need a longer handle because the Co-Ax's mechanical advantage is plently for a .300 winny. If you really wanted one though, it would be a piece of cake to make one, they remove very easily. Hope this helps.

Quoted from the Sinclair catalog in reference to the Forster/Bonanza Co-Ax press:
"Works With All Redding Competition Dies!"

Forster re-designed the handle a couple of years back to accommodate the taller dies.

Only problem with this one is it costs nearly $500. That said, I'd love to have one.
