    This is also the first time I had problems with any of their products. I have four of their presses, lots of molds, die sets, trimmers etc. and they have all been working beautifully. I have dealt with their customer service on a couple of occasions...

    I have a couple thousand of them .308. They were given to as new unfurled component brass. They’re OK but I wouldn’t pay for them. Case forming to .300 sav is more of a pain that it’s worth. You can’t turn necks.... yada yada yada. They...
