Forster/Bonanza Co-Ax press

I finally broke down last night and splurged on a new Forster Co-Ax press last night. Of course I had to set it up and load a few when I got home. I have used my trusty rock-chucker for years with no complaints but I had a ton of cabelas points and needed to burn em. I LOVE THIS PRESS!!

It is really nice not to have to worry about shell holders.. On top of that you can just feel that its a better press.

Re: Forster/Bonanza Co-Ax press

Hey Guys wanted to ask and see if you had the same issue, I also just got the forester press and im loading 300WM and it seems like the jaws of the shell holder dont open quite enough. I dont notice it when removing the brass but when I load a piece brass it has to be snapped into the holder. And I have adjusted it per instructions. I still love the press...

I had the same problem until I screwed the needle almost all the way in. Now I have no problem. It's the best press ever made.
