Re: Reloading Press Upgrade

I am also going to get a new press. I have pretty much decided that I am going with the Lee Breechlock Classic Cast press. It will be my 4th press I have a Lee Challenger, Lee C type, and Dillon 450.

The Forster Co-ax was the other press I was looking at but the Lee is really what I need and it is 150$ cheaper.

The Lee Breechlock is very similar to the LNL setup...what kind of problems did you experience?

    Cogburn, I mentioned in my last post the problems that I observed with my Hornady press. It appears that the problems that I had with my press may not be experienced with the LEE. The bushings that LEE uses are based on an interrupted thread pattern. It is a better design than the Hornady uses.

    If you have the money ($265), take a look at CH's '444', 4-station. It's all-steel, compact, and sets on top of your bench out of the way. You can use their primer sysystem and powder measure or our own.

    Another vote for the Forster Co-Ax. If the ergonomics are something you like or can adapt to easily enough then there is not much downside.

    Whatever press you settle on, don't discount controlling spent primers. Having switched from a Rockchucker to the Co-Ax, not having some way to positively control spent primers would automatically disqualify a press from my consideration.

    Forrester Co-Ax is the way to go.
