Hollywood Press

I have a Hollywood Press it was loaned to me by a family friend to get me into reloading. He also loaned me a ton of other stuff that went with it scales dies and all the trimmings. I have replaced everything except the press. There is no hurry to get the press back and I can have it as long as I want but do I need to replace it it seems like a great press but I just dont know its the only one I've ever used.

Re: Hollywood Press

Thanks for the response but my main question was is te press I'm using any good. This press hasn't been made for along time it's very stout but I don't know it's reputation. It's either amazingly overbuilt an great or it's junk it's so old I can't fin any info on it and woul probably take a seasoned veteran o reloading to even recognize it. The press has a turret style top that can be unlocked and rotated for use with a set of dies for shotgun shells these oversized shotgun dies are also the same size dies that the .50 cal would use so I can load just about every shell out there with it.

Re: Hollywood Press

Hollywood presses are not junk. They command a premium price as long as they are not rusted out.

Re: Hollywood Press

I love mine. I've got the turret model, lots of rounds loaded. Enough space to load as long a cartridge as you want, with plenty of finger room left.

Which model do you have? A picture might generate some comment specific to your situation.

I agree rust is their biggest enemy.

There are some good presses currently available, I would not hold up my reloading waiting for a Hollywood to become available.
