    You may have to be nice to a few widows to get a second hand one mate.
    Hope you find one. They are a great bit of kit.

    Tried Sinclairs? They have some, but their shipping is pretty dear and they may not be able to send one for some dumb reason. I have had some pretty ordinary things not shipped due to export rights and so on.

    The Forster Presses are the ducks nuts of single stage reloading presses alright.

    I got mine from a free ad in the HB Today Tuesday Bargins wanted column.

    An long retired Hunter and Target shooter had it along with lots of other reloading equipment.

    I paid him his asking price of $350 for the press, dies, projectiles, powder, scales, manuals etc etc which was a bloody bargin.

    He was more interested in seeing his reloading gear going to a keen shooter than in gaining the cash.

    I dropped him in a couple of back steaks and some hind quarters a few months later and he was over the moon to think I got the deer with rounds made on his old gear not to mention the amount of meat going into his freezer.

    I picked up a whole job lot of Lyman gear in similar circumstances too. That lot cost me $200.

    I'm sure there are plenty out there gathering dust, you just have to sniff them out and hunt them down.

    Cheers
    Pete
