    FORSTER BONANZA CO-AX PRESS

    I sold the newer one real quick ($200). Midway USA wants $265 plus S/H and they are sold out.

    This one works great, but I have to find the tube and cup for the spent primers.
    I removed them when we moved - and left the press attached to the bench.
    I'll sell this one for $175 and FREE S/H.


    You CAN use the TALL micrometer seating and sizing dies like these .338 RUMs as seen in the photos below.
    I seat the bullets out farther than the specified 3.580" to 3.660" in the Remington 700 rifle.
    Their magazines are longer, and the bullets end up closer to the rifling, and they cycle fine for hunting.
    The base of the bullets and boat-tails are at the neck junction of the cases. -Good-to-go!


    Any Questions?
