Turret Press Lyman-Redding thoughts

Commited to moving up to a Turret press to save some time and steps. Any one have experiance with the Lyman TII, checked it out it look very heavy and the Turrets are reasonably priced. Any practical experiance appreciated.

    Sorry I can't comment on the Lyman as I have never been around one, but,,, as I recently stated in another thread , I have been loading on a Redding T-7 for about 3 years now. I feel they are awesome presses and I am producing the truest ammo I ever have in 33 years of reloading. I am getting ready to set up a new reloading room and I just bought a second T-7 so I can have 2 ready to go. I like them that much.

    Dittos on Broz comments in re the redding T-7. I've used one for years, and been very well satisfied with it. Wouldn't hesitate to buy anopther one if I needed more die stations, and had the room on the bench.

    I've been using the Redding T-7 since it came out.. Great press. I'm a big fan of RCBS.. and have used their turret 6 stage press, which works great, but that one extra station on the T-7 really comes in handy.

    I bought three additional turrets for my T-7. Makes swapping calibers a breeze!

    i also have a redding turret press and would reccomend it to anyone wanting a turret press.
    i also have a redding boss press and frankly like it better.
    alot depends on your style of loading and how fast you want to get it done.
    i like to do one step at a time with all the cases i intend loading.
    i deprime all cases with a decapping die on a seperate press.
