    I have just uploaded a video comparing the T7 and Lyman All-American 8 side by side.



    Go easy on me. It's the first time i've ever been in front of a camera or posted a video online.

    Recommended Turret Press

    OP here.

    Went to my LGS Saturday. Shot at their range. Working on a project gun.

    Asked them what turret press (if any) they recommended. They had three Lyman T Mag II presses gathering dust in the boxes. It is a 6 hole turret rather than 8 holes like the 2018 All-American. It is a year or so dated model. They offered it to me for their invoice price to get it out of inventory. I negotiated a slightly higher price as they are good friends, and I know that they have other overhead as well. But it was still a good price. I have to get some longer bolts to mount it.

    It is not the press I had initially selected. But the price is right and it is a step up. I can use it as a single stage press. Or advance the turret by hand. One or two turret disks should be enough.

    I am surprised at the number of replies my question received. But thank you for the advice. I got a good deal, itís a step up, and I am happy.

    Congratulations! My RCBS is a 6 hole and it is plenty.
    Due to the price of primers, warning shots will no longer be given!

    I’m using The RCBS turret and love it. I have 3 additional turrets and they are priced 20-30 bucks cheaper than the Redding.

    Very cool. I've been reloading on an old Lyman Spar T turret for almost 30 yrs. Basically the forerunner of the T-Mag. Have 32 & 38 dies on the turrent and one powder measure (on Lyman powder through die) full time. I swap measures when changing calibers and do all stages on the press. You should be fine with the Lyman.

    The Lyman T Mag press is set up. Works smoothly. Happy with it so far. Doing case prep as a single process. Will do prime, charge, seat and crimp as a single process. Not sure whether to use the ram prime or the tool on the press to prime. But itís a nice press. Still have the RC for target rifle.
