    how much?
     
  4. The Forster press was $223 and the scale/dispenser was $310.

    This thread is an attempt to make myself feel better about spending that much money. "Oh, Market, your reloading gear is so cool... just like you" :hs:

    I can't wait to get a house and build a lab/workshop
     
  7. It's well worth the price. If you're doing a lot of reloading, it'll pay for itself pretty quickly.

    There.... now go buy more stuff to show us, as we will likely forget about this purchase by next week. Weren't you needing an open gun, and something that made Laurel's boobs bigger?

    JK, cool shit man. I want a 650 pretty bad. Not loading pistol stuff is starting to kill me.
     
  9. You're mean :wtc:


    I do want an open gun, but the more I think about it, the more I'd like to get better with what I have in L-10. As for Laurel's boobs, well, that's even more $$ than an open gun.

    checkout the live.com offer, you might be able to save some green getting your 2nd press
     
  11. It's great. I have all the room I need, and I can leave my stuff out without getting yelled at. I need some gun posters or something for the walls.

    I was going to get a print of Warhol's pistol thing, but MG didn't want it.

    dude, your reloading room looks almost toooo clean. That "should" change as soon as you get a few 100k rounds through your press.

    Make sure you are tumbling and dumping your contents outside, that stuff is very bad stuff to dump indoors. I always go outside of my garage and do it.

    if you want posters you can get free bullet charts from Nosler, Sierra, Barnes, Hornady, etc.

    cool reloading gear.....not too sure about you though.
     
  18. I never thought of that. I guess all that powder/lead residue would get stirred up.
     
  19. :o

    question: why a forster co-ax and not some other single stage?
     
  22. They are so well made, everything is finished perfectly, it's really a nice machine. It's effortless to use too. Also, the ability to snap dies in and out in seconds is great.
     
  23. Link? I looked on some of the manufacturers' sites, but no luck finding these.

    You have to email Nosler and request a catalog
    Get your copy of the 2008 Nosler/NoslerCustom full color catalog. Simply send an email with your name and U.S. postal address to [email protected] with your name and address and we'll mail the catalog to you.

    Barnes
    http://www.barnesbullets.com/resources/catalog-request/

    Hornady

    I can't find a link of Sierra's site though I think I got their literature with a Sinclair Intl. catalog or order or something.
     
  25. Thanks. :bowdown:
