    Like the looks of it, need a O type press, but bucks are a little scarce around here right now.

    Yes Sir, more than I was willing to pay , but I could say that for just about anything related to reloading these days!!!

    You can easily judge the character of others by how they treat those who they think can do nothing for them.

    Scott, that press was the bargain of the month, considering how rare it is and what most anything reloading related has been selling for. This the second one I have seen for sale in the last 15 years.

    Understood, and agree that that press is unique.
    My comment was more in reference to everything else being sold at astronomically insane prices right now.

    Agreed, in that context it is even more of a hot deal.
    It is possible that the Grigsby is so rare that few people knew that it exists. Thus the lower selling price.

    On the bench and ready to work. It has a 30-06 case head shellholder that is unique to this press. So far I have used it for case mouth expanding to seat cast boolits. It woks well and "feels" great. However, I would not want to take on heavy re-sizing with it.
