    Anyone know of any other good ones? Share your opinion of what you consider the best. Not best for the price, but best.

    Bonanza Co-Ax, for all but the really big stuff. Have owned and used most of the presses on the market, but this is the best IMHO.

    I agree. The Bonanza press will handle any of the big csaes with ease. If you are loading a small case and want versatility, the Redding turret top is very flexible. Can't go wrong with either Redding or Bonanza. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    The A-2 RCBS is one of the best presses I have ever seen but might be hard to find.Rock Chucker works fine for me!I have had a Bonanza and it worked well.

    Auburn,
    I have a Redding Ultramag set up on my reloading bench and an RCBS reloader special that i take to the range for load developement

    I used to do all my bottleneck cases and 45-70-2 1/10 on the RCBS and originally bought the Ultramag to load 45-110-2 7/8, both are excellent.
    I now do all my handloading on the Ultramag, which also has enough leverage for bullet swaging.
    If i had to choose between RCBS and Redding, it would be Redding simply because i like Redding better /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif
