Since the last post work has really started to pick up which has cut into the fun time. I am nearing an end if that is possible. Since the last post Iíve finished the shaft and made the case holders.

The original handle was going to be an issue so a quick an easy modification was in order. Cut, grind and weld.

Currently the press is finished and full functioning. Iíve decapped a 100 rounds and did some shoulder bumping just for testing purpopses.

The only hold up at this point is with the die set. Itís a Redding competition bushing neck sizing die which I really like.  At the time of purchase I didnít realize a neck bushing set would be required. Iím not real hot on the idea of buying the set Redding offers so I decided to make my own. Might as well make some sizing buttons too. The Material is D2 which will get heat treated. Itís a pretty cool material, during the heat treat process it grows micro carbides. When finished and polished it will be slick as glass.

Dang
People get offended at nothing at all. So, speak your mind and be unapologetic.

Nice! Looks awesome!

If you are not willing to die for freedom then take the word out of your vocabulary.
