I have done alot of research on presses and am set on a Forster Co-ax, Redding Big Boss, or RCBS Rock Chucker Supreme. As far as I can tell, the Co-ax seems to reload the best with minimal run out issues. My only concern is I have read that some of micrometer dies (300 win mag) don't clear the yoke on the handle and bullet pulling can be a pain. I need some solid information and input from someone who knows reloading. Is the Co-ax really worth the money? Will it reload more accurate ammo than the other presses mentioned? Will I have clearance issues with my 300 win mag micrometer dies? I don't want to regret my most important purchase of a reloading press. Thanks for all of your help.
There are a lot of good presses available and My recommendation would be the RCBS Rock Chucker Supreme.
I like the mechanical advantage it has when loading Big cases and It's accuracy.
Run out issues are normally caused by the brass and die setup and prep.
I have been loading for over 50 years and still have my Original Rock Chucker and the newest
model for the really big cartridges and have never had an issue with excessive run out.
I am a little extravagant when it comes to hunting/shooting gear but have never Seen the need to change my reloading press.
Just My opinion
