    I have an older press which would be suitable for that, but not resizing large cases without some repairs first. About $90. Where are you?

    It's an Aussie version of the rockchucker. (Simplex) It has a small crack in the ram just under the shell holder slot, which could be welded up. However, for just bullet seating you probably would'nt need to do even that.

    Thanks for the generous offer garyp, really want the convienience of a second press bolted to my bench. I've made a couple of noob mistakes shifting the sizing die on and off and not adjusting properly.

    Might be cheaper to get die locking rings Workshop Innovation - Gunsmithing & Reloading Tools: Reloading Stuff +, Die Parts

    Thanks Pete, when you get back after easter i'll be keen to have a look at these amongst your other things. Perhaps you can give me a lesson or two when we catch up.

    Thanks P38, I was really nice to meet you this evening. And thanks for a great trade. The Lee will be exactly what i was after for a second press for seating or priming on the press.
