    I just used my 25-06 dies, they are Redding in a cardboard box. I have a bunch of RCBS in those boxes.

    I got the shotgun press pictured as part of a larger it's neat looking and my end up being a decoration but it it looks like the majority of the pieces are there. I have been getting a lot of vintage equipment lately...something draws me to it lol.

    If there was anything wrong with old reloading equipment I would loose enough to put me out of business. I still use some of the Herter's stuff I bought in 1971.

    Trader Dan, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but your No1 was made by Lyman. Sometime between 1926/7 and WW2. When production resumed in 1947 it was replaced with the #45.

    How to tell the difference in who made it? The address. Yours is Middlefield, that's Lyman. The pre Lyman's are New Haven. Savage made No1's would also be New Haven though I have not heard of anyone with a Savage marked example.

    I have several Bair presses that I use regularly, 12 and 20 ga sg presses and a big Kodiak that I reload 30-40 krag and 30-06 on. I also use a lyman #45 and two #450 lubrisizers. Nothing wrong with the old stuff. You just have to get creative if something breaks.
