Reloading Press ?'s

What press are you guy's using for your magnum cartridges? I've outgrown my Redding Boss and need a press with a larger opening to reload for my 300 Dakota.

Thanks
Kevin

I use an RCBS Ammo Master. But if I was doing it again, I'd get the Ultra Mag from Redding.

300 Dakota is negligibly longer (.010") than 7mm rem mag. This length is easily handled by the Forster co-ax, one of the finest single stage reloading presses available. Forster has recently upgraded the co-ax handle yoke for an additional 1.5" of die clearance, but even the previous model would handle 7mmRM dies just fine.

For a great press at a budget price, the Lee Classic Cast (iron) press is an excellent choice, with plenty of capacity and strength.

I am using the classic cast press and hope to replace it soon. The tolerance on the ram is poor to say the least and you can wiggle it from side to side. Also the shell holder does not sit flat on top of the ram.
It served me well to get started, but it's time to get a real press!
