Yep, the newer style Co-Ax press works with plenty of clearance. Thanks!!!

Forster re-designed the handle a couple of years back to accommodate the taller dies.
I think Forster now sells three different handles for the C0-Ax press. The original had the long handle with the shorter opening. This one will do anything as long as you don't use a redding micrometer seater. Then Forster came out with the same handle, but with a shorter extention. Later they came out with a handle that had a larger opening to allow use of Redding dies. Also keep in mind that Sinclair is nothing but a shill for Redding, and will push their over priced line of equipment even though they know better.

Actually, Forster only sells two handle sizes now.

All current production co-ax presses have the larger handle yoke to clear taller dies.

They offer the standard, longer, tubular handle grip, and an optional shorter, ball handle grip. Both handles work in conjunction with the same (larger) yoke.

I second on the Dillon 550, of course I can't comment on any other brands because since 1994, this is the only press I've ever used.

Re: Best reloading press ??

I have several presses and the strongest one is the RCE Walnut Hill press. It is by far the strongest press but I really like the Redding T7 press for general reloading. I don't think one press is enough but that is just me. I also have a Dillon 550 which is a great press. I use the Walnut Hill to make bullets and I use the Redding T7 the most for reloading.

Good luck, and good shooting.
Forester Co-Ax is the way to go. I have some Hollywood presses as well...
But Forester is far superior to the rest.
