Yep, that's the beast alright. That press is really an old workhorse and it is heavy. I have never swaged bullets but I bet it would handle that with ease. I have updated though and have a couple rockchukers and a couple of the Jr. presses and a Lee and,and,and. Nothing like Alpinliters setup but I got a lot of realoading stuff,,,Walt
I like beautiful women, fine wine and poking dead things with a stick!"If you carry a gun, people will call you paranoid. That's ridiculous. If I have a gun, what in the hell do I have to be paranoid for."Socialism is not a Republic.

Oh yeah! I have one of those things. I must have had it for about 45 years. I loaded a lot of ammo on it and it is still servicable. Have upgraded to a Rockchucker. Does anyone need a boat anchor? :angry:
