    I bought the latter from Simplex, they are nice people to deal with.

    Yes I remember it didn't full length resize & not a problem when we only ran one 222Rem & a Hornet back then, if some else dropped a fired shell from their rifle in our cases then we could get a jam !

    Want me to pick that up next time I'm in Hawksbay @akaroa1 lol ?

    @garyp would you have any spare shell holders to fit one of these, maybe a 32/20-25/20-218 Bee size ?

    Great little simplex press thanks Gary

    Cleaned up nicely
    Made a new handle and ball end
    Adjusted the 22 Hornet dies
    Sized and seated a few dummy rounds and they are perfect in the Stevens
    Now just need a wet day and I will do some load testing
    The vintage rifle shoots sub moa with Hornady 45 grain factory so hope to at least equal that

    I have a bunch of die parts for one of these - mostly 38 spl from memory. Free for the cost of shipping if you are interested
    Be more involved and less impressed.

    Simplex is still in business if you need parts or dies for your press.

    If it wasn't for bad luck
    You know I wouldn't have no luck at all…

    Mounted the simplex on a decent base board for when I want it on the reloading bench

    Dug out the 300 MP powder and looked up the data
    So nearly good to go
