    Huntington compact hand press

    Hi all,
    Was wondering if any of you would be able to tell me what kind of shell holders the Huntington compact hand press uses?

    Roy Huntington founded the RCBS company so I would guess it uses RCBS shell holders.

    Also it should be noted that since the HDS Press is no longer available the Buchanan Precision Machine Hand Press which is an updated version on the HDS Compac Press is readily available at ,,, www.buchananprecisionmachine.com

    It also uses all common shell holders.

    I'll second Randy's recommendation. If you don't have a Huntington, get his. And that's from one who has both.
