    Anyone able to snag one? Seems like they have 6 left out of 12 yesterday.

    These are currently going on ebay for $360+

    Two months ago, they were going for $500+

    Thanks for the heads-up but I already have one... That is one very fine press.

    What makes them such a good press? I have never seen one.

    I bought one of these back in the mid 90's. I had great expectations for it, but I was disappointed and sold it. IIRC, the loads weren't any more concentric as those loaded on other presses I had at that time.

    I find myself looking now at that RCBS Summit press which seems to have some of the features, but doesn't require that you use the lock ring to secure your die in the press.

    I've loaded more than 80,000 rounds on mine... I liked it so much i bought a second to have as a spare, i've never needed it and it's still new, hanging on a nail in the barn...

    I should have ebayed it when they were selling for $500.00! lol

    It's the way the press aligns the dies and case. It's the additional leverage provided by how the set up the linkage. There are a few other good points about the design too.

    Read about the press here:
