    This shouldn't need any explanation...Let's see your press.

    First time posting to the photo contest.

    I took this for the red contest and didn't get it submitted in time. Hopefully the picture attaches....

    I thought I would post a pic of my Lee Handpress. Reloading can be fairly inexpensive without all the nice fancy high end stuff too.

    In regards to shooting safety.Until you are ready to fire, keep your booger hook off the bang switch.

    My swaging, gas check seating, boolit sizing, case mouth expanding press. The heart of it is a toggle clamp and the rest came from the scrap pile at work.

    I took this pic for another post "who needs a progressive" but did not post it.



    It leaves out my Lyman single stage and for obvious reasons, my progressive!

    Swaging. Keeping the 40's running for the price of .22's
    and .223 bullets for a fraction of a cent!

    Here's mine after adding quick mount stands from Inline Fabrication.


    I recently moved the presses to take this old SB 9A apart for cleaning and repainting so reloading is on hold for the time being. Fortunately I have a lot of loaded ammo ready to go.
    Keep moving forward!
