    I found my first one nearly 30 years ago... one of my shooting buddies got it in a bulk buy of an estate, IIRC and I paid him about $20 or less for it. Another friend, the late Jerry ("Jake") Simmons (he of re- and decapper fame) opined that he needed one since he had broken his Rockchucker. I found him one at a gun show soon thereafter and traded it to him for another of his re- & de's. I paid probably $25 or less for that one, but he was glad to trade me one of his units he made himself ( and sold for about $100) to have it in hand. My original is on loan now ,but it is still mine when I need it.

On the way home we boys would be in the back seat laughing our butts off about salt & pepper shakers every place. I'm such a sucker for reloading stuff I'm starting to feel like one of those old lady salt & pepper shaker ladies.

    That is a solid looking press.
    I'm sure pictures don't do it justice.

    Pictures do not do this press justice!

    I almost got a hernia, carrying it in!

    I KNOW I got a deal on this even at having to make a new handle for it!

    I wiped it down a little and took some pics!

    This press HAD to be made to swage with???

    If anyone has an old Herter's Catalog and can see what they say about this press, I would be interested!

    It has some of the best, solid, machining, I've seen on a press!

    My favorite presses are the RCBS A2, and the CH Champion, but this press weighs more than those and can run with them!!!

    Ram is very smooth and at 1.5" dia. stout!

    Will have to buy the converter for the shellholder!
    Still looking for the shell holder converter????
    If it's the same as for the Herters Turret press, I have an extra one.
