I've thought about that, but with this press, it will just go write in my shooting bag with the ammo and the calipers. No C-clamp to carry etc. Really handy and easier to use than a bench press for reseating, as you can do it standing or sitting (no bending over a shooting bench etc.)

AJ,
Thanks for the info. I'm kinda in the same situation only I drive about 15-20mi one way. Don't mind the drive it just takes so long to do load development. I have a Lee press that I was gonna rig up to take with me, but I am going to look into the one you mentioned. JohnnyK.

A.J. did you have to adjust your dies any to get the same sizing and seating depth on the hand press as your bench press. I have been looking hard at these presses too. Thanks

Yes, I had to back them off about .20" or so, I think I am going to make a shim and have a buddy surface grind it to the exact thickness, then my dies won't need readjusted. If you only load for one caliber, you could just get a second seating die.

Every press I have is a little different in that perspective.
