Reloading with a Forster Co Ax press??

I bought a Forster Co Ax press a while back,and really like it.My question is,with the design of it,the way the dies are inserted(they just slide in from the side),is there any reason to make die adjustments once they are set?Once I set up my FL die to bump the shoulder back .002",and I settle on a seating depth,is there any reason to ever mess with the settings after that?Since these dies are only being used for one gun,I am under the impression that I will get consistant ammo each and every time using the Forster press,and never messing around with set up's.If I am wrong,please let me know.

    You are correct and it is a great press. I have used one for years.

    That's what I was hoping to hear.I was just concerned that after the brass has been fired a few times,that maybe the hardness of the brass would start to change,and I would start to get a "spring back"affect when I bump the shoulder back.

    You should be annealing your brass. I also have the same press. Works great.

    I asked for this press for Christmas...curious to see if my loads become any more accurate because of it.

    I doubt it. I can produce near zero runout, accurate ammo with my rockchucker just as well as the co-ax.

    In fact, I use the rockchucker more often.
