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.
