    Hollywood pres and shel holders

    Past weekend went to a garage sale. Upon mentioning reloading, the seller stated his father had boxed up reloading gear back in the day. It was like a treasure hunt!! Wooden boxes nailed shut, not opened in 40 years or better.
    One of the bigger items was a hollywood press ,complete with both primer arms and six shell holders. One of the shell holders was the RCBS conversion allowing use of RCBS shell holders.
    Lots old bullets, some of the companies I've never heard of. Old powder cans. His scale and powder measure and much other stuff.
    I'm in heaven just playing with my "news" toys.

    Nice score and hope you put it all back in operation. It'll be a walk back in time.

    Wow! Tools and supplies.

    Good find!
    Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway!

    When the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem is a nail.

    I bought a Hollywood Sr. a couple years ago. This winter I'm going to clean it up and use it to see if it really is fun to reload with one.

    i have two hollywood universals(12 die holes) that i have not used as i have other turret presses. if i ever get the space in my garage i may set one up to handle my 3006 based cases. they are very heavy.

    I also have a hollywood universal and a sr. The universal is tricky as there is 12 stations 4 indexable shell stations and 4 primer indexable stations. Gotta sit back and think it out! LOL..

    I have a Hollywood Senior...its big and heavy...has less leverage than a LEE ...alignment isn't as good as a RockChucker

    And its too heavy to ship.....Whats behind the "snob appeal" for HollyWood STUFF???

    Super6,
    Not sniping, jes a bit puzzled...Xactly, to each their own...I am high on a Mountain(covered wid 6" of snowe, today),
    in New Mexico...it aint New an dang shore aint Mexico...

    I do have a number of presses and have been reloading since 1973...have several times bought the wrong STUFF...& now fairly comfortable wid wat I have....a non-shooter/reloader found this HollyWood Senior in an abandoned storage
    unit and passed it on to me for some cash and other considerations....I made a effort to free it up and investigated getting shell-holders and priming punches....several weeks later he brought a box in wid 6 shell holders and the priming tools...and gave them to me...

    So here I sit with an old press that I am clewless as to wat to do with...no place to set it up...
    Its certainly a conversation-piece...

    Thanks for your response.
