Re: First reloading press suggestions
The Coax is a great press ... IF you like the ergomics of that 'straight out' lever; a lot of people don't.
User features vary a bit between tool brands and models but that's just personal taste, it's not a 'quality' or performance issue. Redding makes as good a press as anyone else but, unless you need the great leverage of their massive UltraMag or like the die and lever arrangements of the Forster Coax, there are no other meaningful advantages to either one. Lee's Classic Cast is a great press at any price and the comparitively low cost is simply a bonus benefit.
Dies and presses are steel/iron (usually) so there's nothing spongy for seating about them. A highly consistant OAL has little effect and most such variation comes from differences in the bullets. Jump to the lands does matter but even bullet jump doesn't require rocket precision, other variables have larger effects on accuracy. Anyway, consistancy of seating depends on the user, not the die.
