Wonder why Cabella's doesn't have them in their local store here?? Same town as that little gunshop....

"Redding junk"? Goodness! I assume you mean Redding's dies? I generally prefer Forster dies for personal reasons but not quality. For a "pros and cons" question, that's an unconventional judgement that goes against the whole of common reloading wisdom. It would be interesting to hear how you justify saying that. ??
I've never heard of and can't imagine anyone buying two-three presses inside ten years simply because their first wasn't a Co-Ax. Acquiring different or additional presses (or anything else) with specific features for specific tasks isn't uncommon but never because the first wasn't from Forster!
"It without question the most powerfull press sold. It's the only press that uses a "toggle" design in it's fulcrum points." ????
Oh? Actually, every press currently made has a compound toggle link lever system, that's what the twin swinging links and the block that holds the lever accomplishes. The major "power" difference with the Co-Ax comes from it's longer lever throw, any long lever amplifies force more effectively than a short lever. But, since the others still have much more power, or leverage, than reloading needs it's mostly irrelivant. IMHO of course.
I often easily reform .30-06 to .243 and .22-250 with one hand on a conventional "O" frame single stage press; how much more leverage should I need?
"without starting WWIII let ..."
I know what you mean but you'll have no war with me, I don't take opposing views as a personal insult.
I have used the Co-Ax, that's why I said good things about it, but it's ergonomics aren't for me.
I fully appreciate the design of it's toggle arm system and mentioned its great leverage in my first post. That said, I consider it irrelivant for common reloading tasks because others do just as well, at least for me, and at MUCH less cost. That allows me to buy other small presses for special purposes and still have less investment in my loading system.
Individual goals and individual choices. But....Redding "junk"?
