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.

    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.

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

    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.
