    i am currently looking at buying this lyman SPAR T press of a guy, but i was wondering if it could do .223 and 308 cartridges, along with pistol calibers. do you think it could do 7 mm rem mag also?

    thanks guys, brian

    Brian,

    I presume you are refering to a Lyman Spartan press, which Lyman no longer makes and does not have parts for if something breaks. Yes, to answer your question, you can load any calibers on the Spartan. It is a "C" press so under great stress it might exhibit a small amount of spring. However, it is obsolete, and there are better presses available. The question you might want to ask is why would someone use a push mower when newer, more efficient power mowers are available. If it is a second press, I would say go for it but if it is going to be your primary press, I would suggest you look at other options.

    The Spar-T is a turret press and is very capable. I have one and use it for .357mag, 7.7jap (forming from military '06 brass), 223 and 30-06. I think it will do what you want.

    what about LEE???

    i was looking at midway, and seen that they have a lee turret progressive 1000 that comes with a case feeding tube, primer inserter, powder measure with 4 discs, and a set of .223 dies(or others, havent decided yet) for 132.99$. i think that i am going to save up and just get this instead. i talked with the fellow that was seling it and he was really col about everything, so if there is anyone out there that would like his name, he still has the sparten for sall for 50.00$


    what do you guys think about the lee 1000? does it give repeatable accuracy in loads and powder measurments?

    thanks guys, brian
