hood reloading press, must take a look

Hey guys take a look at this little doozy!Hood Custom Products - Hood Press Now this is the bee's knee's. Too bad it dosen't work on long cartridges like the 338 Lapua and 300 Win Mag. Does anyone know of something similar where I can use threaded and hand dies but for larger cartridges?

Re: hood reloading press, must take a look

Lynnwood Harrell and company make a similar combo press, and if I'm not mistaken, it's not as gawd-awful overpriced (and semi unobtainable to boot) as the Hood. Still designed primarily for .308 Win and smaller cartridges, though.

A cheaper, and still viable option is to get a light weight threaded press like an RCBS Partner, mount it to a small section of board, and c-clamp the dang thing to the bench as needed. Not sure I'd recommend it for a steady diet of sizing cases bigger than .308 unless you had it clamped down *really* snug.
