    They have a good reputation and should have no problems.

    I was a Diehard RCBS Guy, bought a Redding T-7 Turret Press, then bought another one :).

    Good stuff.

    Just my .02,

    Redding quality

    I own redding presses and dies all are excellent. Don't know about the scale. Don't buy thier 2400 trimmer that was a $170.00 major disappointment. If you need info or have questions just call them excellent service except for the timmer.

    They're a little more $$ but tend to be worth it. I recently picked up one of their powder measures and it's excellent.

    Yes, teh Redding will do 30-06 without issue.

    It is what I have for a single stage.

    Good press.

    Redding dies are my dies of choice with RCBS a close second.

    Enjoy your new press.

    Redding presses are high end, and pricey.

    It will last several lifetimes.

    Beam scale? It will last as long as the press. It is as good as any other two poise scale.

    You have bought some of the best stuff money can buy. I don't think you'll have to worry about any of it.

    I have a Big Boss II. It's a solid press. U can't go wrong with a Redding single stage. The T-7 is the best turret on the market. It's a tank..! I highly recommend a T-7 down the road.

    You're ahead of a lot of other folks, you've got one ordered ! Hope it shows up soon, you'll be in tall cotton then, others not so lucky.

    Redding makes my favorite dies. Haven't used too much of their other gear.

    Sounds like you got fun times ahead of you cranking out ammo. :)
